this morning i woke up to having hayden crawling into bed with me telling me he felt sick. i don't blame him. it was hotter than some one's armpit. i slept last night in my undies. no sheet & a fan blowing on me full force. still had cleavage sweat. ick. my hair was nappy when i woke up. momma no likey. i don't think hayden was lying at that point - i think we all felt sick from heat. i finally buckled down and turned on the air. air conditioning in decemeber? pure madness. especially cause my friends in utah keep texting me telling me about the snow we're getting dumped with.
we've watched a lot of movies today. i'm trying to buy their love, you see. totally working for everyone except hayden, who keeps telling me i'm mean. cause i'm not letting him grump at me. and, i'm not letting him eat candy and junk, cause he's sick. sick enough that we couldn't stay for all of church, cause he "felt the throw up in his mouth" - which, ew, if you think about it. but its ok. i love snuggling and napping and watching a movie. or four.
when i want the kids to do something - i talk in like an old italian man. it works wonders for making them do whatever i want them to do. its gotten piano practiced tonight, clothes & toys put away, and bathes taken.
oh - and we had a sword fight today. a) hunter's brutal. he gutted me a few times. b) hayden's got more swords than i've ever seen. he kept coming down with new swords. c) i'm a scrapper. i can hold my own in a sword fight. made me a little proud of myself today.
