February-it's SOOO boring! I told the boys the other day, attempting to make the month of 'bored-out-of-our-brains a little better', "It's February, the month of love!" And one of them said, "Eewwww that makes it worse!"
Seriously, February, in the winter, with a bunch of boys, is enough to make any mom go bonkers. I usually am worn down by now. I don't think twice about walking past a boy hurling himself off the arm of a chair (my good chair!) to slam dunk. One day years ago I let them take the sleds down the stairs-they had so much fun landing in a nest of blankets. A few nights ago, Andrew found an old kitchen timer and set it up to see how fast he could run relays back and forth down the hallway-it was right before bedtime and I figured he hadn't met his entire energy expenditure of the day and had a few extra bursts to get out of his system.
