After breakfast we were getting ready for a walk, and Emma got into trouble for using unkind words with Mama after I asked her to change. Then, Caleb threw a big fit and ended up on his bed (which was all for nothing, because all I was going to do was ask him to flush the toilet, but he assumed he must be in trouble so opted for crying on the floor).
The walk was a nice break, but I decided we all needed a do-over. So, since my mom was babysitting the cousins, I thought I would take the kids over to Grandma's, which they love, and then take the big kids to the library to choose some Thanksgiving books. When we got to the library, it was closed!!! By this time, you just have to laugh. I mean, really. But, my mom ever-so-kindly made us all lunch, and we had some fun on starfall.com, and then came home for rest time.
After dinner, Ben had to go to work (it's night shift week!). A friend came by to bring over some hand-me-down clothes, and her two kids were playing with all of mine. In the next 30 minutes, Caleb hurt his ear, Emma cut her gums and was bleeding, Ezra was screaming to be fed, and Noah did this:
TWICE. They took the sink out of the play kitchen, and Noah climbed into the cabinet below the sink opening, and stuck his head and arms up through the opening. You can't see in the picture, but there is a microwave above his head, so you can't pick him up through the opening (not that he would have fit that way!). The only choice was to go back down through the opening.
The first time I helped him out (and told him not to do it again). The second time I took pictures and told him he was on his own. He got himself out.
Anyway... today was a day. I can't wait to see what tomorrow has for us...
