Its really hard to blog or think because Romulus and Gladys are dancing and roaring on the bed in some perverse attempt to make every part of my body hurt. However, I feel that we've turned an important corner in our lives and it needs to be mentioned before I am distracted by something.
I've heard this would happen but didn't Really believe it.
As I've propped myself up here in various contorted positions trying to find an online homeschool planning system that looks easy to use and will calculate my hours for me (wouldn't it just be better if I went ahead and calculated my hours with my clunky old calculator and a calendar, but this is so much more interesting), my oldest two children have emptied the dishwasher, cleaned the kitty box (I know, they're AMAZING kids), collected bottles and sippy cups, carried piles of laundry to the laundry room, fed everyone breakfast, cleaned up breakfast and played some complicated ball throwing game of their own invention.
Pretty soon I suppose I'll have to heft myself up from my regal and hippolike state because everyone will be dressed and ready to go somewhere. But meanwhile I'm glorying in the satisfaction of having so many useful and obedient children.
