Monday for sure

This morning my dad says to me, "it's definitely Monday" I asked him why he says that, and he said he spilled his coffee in the bathroom all over my rug (that can't be washed), and the toilet almost overflowed. I said, "oh and you left your credit card on the table and Anthony took it and now I can't find it". Then he locked himself out of the house, and then Anthony decided to help himself to some peanuts!
Yep it's definitely Monday!

Bella's having a good Monday so far. I just discovered that she loves TV. Anthony never did, and still doesn't really that much, so I never even tried to use it to occupy Bella. Francie put her in front of it the other day and she liked it. Yay for me, she watched cartoons for 45 minutes this morning. Wait, does that make me a bad mom?
Yesterday Tony went to a birthday party at a park. They rented a big blow up jumping thing for the kids, but he only wanted to drive around in this the whole time. If I tried to take him out he pushed me away and closed the door again.

And here is what got done on the Patio over the weekend... it's coming right along. My dad says he hopes to be done by Labor Day! Honestly I don't know if he was joking or serious, and I don't think he does either. At least he doesn't seem to mind. He certainly doesn't seem to be in a hurry to get back to OK. I think he prefers working in 70 degree weather rather than the 107 degree heat index they are having in OK.

Yes, the deck is going to be awesome!

Adrian was watching soccer the other morning on tv.. so if you are a bad mom, so am I!!

It's not bad to allow children to watch TV. And you only allow her to watch good learning channels, which is good for her! It's brilliant!

Invest in Baby Einstein DVSs as they are great. Tami's girls had lots of Cedermont Kids' DVD that I even enjoyed. They also had Angelina Ballerina, Richard Scarey and other great ones for little babies, toddlers and preschoolers.

The walls of the patio look wonderful. Will the top be wood decking? Will you be able to access this from inside the house?

A nonwashable rug with 2 kids - your were a brave soul.

How can it be bad when she looks so cute with her face glued to the TV? :D And in her little John Deere shirt!

You are so lucky. That is such a nice deck! I wonder what it would cost if you were hiring someone you didn't know to do it. I'm trying to talk Adam into letting me come over on Friday to help so that I can learn how to do it so that I can make my own steps out of stone like Tom suggested. It looks like a lot of back breaking work, but also like it might take some artistic talent, which makes me think if I knew how it worked I might be capable.

Also, Glad you discovered the TV for Bella!
