This conversation is the same every Thursday, and it can be me that is #1 or hubby that is #1 (in the conversation, not in real life!) In case you didn't notice all three kids have practice on Thursday's all at the same time in different places!! We start coordinating early and it tires us out, by the time 8:15 rolls around it feels like midnight!!! This is us coordinating on Thursday's to make sure everyone is in the right place at the right time, with the right parent and that homework and dinner and yes showers and bedtime are done on time!!!!!! This Thursday is done and done OK, only 4 more like this to go (we have been doing this for 4 weeks now, I don't like this routine)!!!!!!!!!!!
Thankful Thursday is over, Goodnight!
