…everyone woke up much more themselves. (okay there was a certain irony to Matthew being down for the count…but it also is more scary when he is so quiet!).
The house is a mess. I don’t feel like cleaning but, I have gotten quite a bit done. First, haircuts for the boys. Riley NEEDED one.
I cut everyone’s hair the weekend before school started. For the first time, the boys didn’t want me to use the clippers and Riley asked to have longer hair – like one of his friends. So, I tried to accomodate his request but his hair is so unruly. Anyway, it has grown a ton since then and then I discovered a hunk of hair in the bathroom trash can – he had cut his bangs because they were in his eyes –okay! it’s time.
this time he refused to have me use the clippers at all – not even on the back and sides. Ugh – I am not that good with scissors – Usually. This time, he sat really well and I was able to get it done. then I worked on Matthew. Well, because Riley didn’t use clippers he didn’t want them either – but he wanted it short enough to use gel and spike it up….Okay that was taxing but going round and round the top of his head I was able to get it short enough.
then Addison wanted a hair cut. Her hair has finally gotten long enough to put in ponytails and I was hesitant to do it but…she insisted. Now she has a earlength bob. It has been getting shorter and shorted cuz she is uneven but I think I am stopping at this point.
Logan has asked for one tomorrow. I don’t know whether i will do it or not. depends on how much crying there is today.
I am thankful for baking supplies on sale. Today I bought 6 5-lb packages of flour and 2 5-lb packages of whole wheat. It was on sale for $1.50 a package. I am planning on making a bunch of muffin/waffle/brownie mixes to have in the freezer.
