Happy to See Mommy

I was working late last night, and M-lady needed to head out to work early this morning. She was kind enough to make Bud's lunch, though. I got up, got Bud dressed and headed for breakfast, got myself dressed, and then rousted Buster. He was amenable to my dressing him, and we all loaded up to take Bud to school. The drop off went well, and Buster insisted on riding on my shoulders on the way back to the car. I complied, but warned him that he's getting awfully big to ride up there.

We got Buster some breakfast when we got home, and Nanny J arrived a couple minutes later. When I headed to work a few minutes later, Buster was playing with my Star Wars Monopoly set in the playroom, with Nanny J watching and playing along.

When I got home, Bud was at the top of the stairs in his robe with a wand, and Buster was playing Star Wars Monopoly in the playroom with Nanny J. He apparently didn't do that all day: They picked Bud up from school, went to TKD, and Buster even snoozed a bit. We said goodbye to Nanny J after I dropped my things, and played and watched a little TV together. I also spent a little time teaching Bud how to play draw poker, at his request.

M-lady arrived home before too long, and the kids were pretty happy to see her, after missing her last night and this morning. Bud did his piano practice after confirming that we'd be going to his book fair this week, and then flew through his homework. He'll be getting one page of homework a day from school, rather than a weekly packet as he did last year. He didn't have any trouble with the simple math problem set. We all had dinner after he finished up. Both kids ate pretty well. Buster started by spurning the food, but ended up eating a lot.

After dinner the kids and I played a little bit of Lego Pirate of the Caribbean for a few minutes before snack time. M-lady conducted most of snack, and we headed upstairs for bed. I got Buster into PJs, and then read some stories and watched a few videos with Bud.

Sometime around 9:30, M-lady came in to the office asking where Buster was. He wasn't in his room, and his blanky was in our room, but he wasn't there, either. We found him downstairs, playing with some playing cards. M-lady walked him back up to bed, where he fell asleep reasonably quickly.
