one of THOSE nights

Afterschool Davin's backpack was too heavy. According to him, it was taking too long to get through his reading tonight. He was starving. Once dinner was ready, it wasn't what he liked. After showers, the task of putting a pillowcase on his pillow was overwhelming to him. Then I found this pair of feet staring at me from the arm of the couch, and I knew...
Its no wonder everything was so difficult tonight... this is 6:30p.m.
Meanwhile just down the hall...this little comedian was singing "Santa Clause is Comin' to Town" at the top of her lungs, and then trying to complete backwards summersaults. IN the bath. It was something else.
Surprisingly no bruises.

Summersaults in the bathtub? What? No swan dives?

Yes. Mr. T'dots is Uncle Steve

Sounds like you had a mommy night just like me. When you're in the moment, it's not always so cute, but when you get a chance to look at in pictures... it warms the heart. Great documentation of the day-to-day.

I totally agree with Leanne. Love the pics. Jordyn fell asleep after school to on the way to gymnastics. It's tiring being a kid! :)
