Jonny and I just watched the superbowl. We had recorded it because I was out with the Lion and missed the beginning. And because we had to pause it many many many times to referee the kids.
We usually referee by trying to determine which child is the culprit (not easy to do) and putting the assumed culprit in the corner. Until he or she calms down. And then we discuss what happened, have the accused apologize and we kiss and hug and call it solved. But sometimes I just do not feel up to the task of trying to figure out who hit whom first and whether it was intentional or accidental and so sometimes I just make them hug and say they are sorry to each other and skip the whole time out bit. And I was delighted to see that the Gosselins do this too on Jon and Kate Plus 8. Granted, they have 6 toddlers and I only have two, but whatever.
In addition to our regular meals today I set out some plates of fruit and veggies and chips and salsa and some dips in the family room. Super bowl snacks. I let the kids load up their little plates and sit on the hearth to eat. They loved this! I cannot believe how much food they consumed. But since at least half of it was veggies and there was spinach in one of the dips, I am not too concerned.
And they had a blast with the 3D glasses Wal-Mart was handing out the other day for the 3D superbowl commercials.
We don't watch football. Just the superbowl, and then usually just for the commercials. But I really got into this one. I really wanted the Cardinals to win. So of course they lost. And the commercials were pretty lame this year, too, so I am wondering why I bothered to spend half of my day in front of the television.
And I feel like crap because I ate waaaaaay too many chips. And I have bodypump in the morning. sigh
Nablopomo Day 2 summation:
wanted the Cardinals to win
want to sleep in tomorrow and avoid any and all bodypumping
