Good Morning, Monday.

Hope you all had a lovely Easter!
This week is spring break for Alex, so in theory we'll be sleeping in and lounging around.

In reality, the boy started our week with a 7am wake-up.

To make matters worse, the two zits that made their appearance on my face yesterday did not magically disappear while I was sleeping. I think maybe I'll just stay in hiding until my skin remembers that I am not actually 14 years old.

If you come by the house and I have a couple of spots of toothpaste on my face, just pretend you don't notice. I stopped buying clearasil a long time ago, and I heard that toothpaste will do the trick.

Pat the Bunny made it back home, so now I have to detox the children from constant entertainment.
After 20 minutes of experience, I can tell you it's not going to be an easy task.
It doesn't help that they each collected their body weight in Easter candy yesterday.
I'm getting so tired of saying no to their requests to eat candy that I'm considering just letting them have it all at once and be done with it.
Who thinks that would be a bad idea?

It's time for a final Bananagrams update!

Do you notice those two piles of letter tiles?

Instead of a scoresheet picture, I thought this would more accurately portray my dominance.
The pile on the left represents the games that I won, and the pile on the right show's PtB's victories.

Enough said.
Yes, Pat the Bunny, I can hear you from here. But it's my blog, and if I don't want to report the way you won cribbage then I don't have to! Get your own blog.

Tomorrow I will announce the winner of the Count my bags giveaway, so if you haven't taken a guess yet, now's your chance.

Now let's play: What's wrong with this picture?, Easter Morning Edition.

1) My children rarely wear pants.
2) I didn't remember until late on Saturday night that Derek's Easter basket did not survive our last move, so we had to improvise with an Easter bucket.
3) The person taking this photo was developing two unsightly facial blemishes and didn't even realize it.

Happy Monday.

Let me know if the toothpaste thing works . . . not that I would need to try it or anything . . .

Honestly I think letting them have at it is not a bad way to go...one seriously crazy day then back to their normal diet of burned pancakes and such : )

I used to try to ration the candy out and not let them eat it all at once. Now I am to the philosophy of letting them eat it all at once as long as they don't throw up, I'm good with it.

I am pretty sure we still have halloween and Christmas candy hidden... I am that good at rationing it out!!

It just gets weirder Erin...each week...MORE things that indicate we are entirely too much alike...har har! I too am reverting back to my teenage skin...and it's doing nothing for my 30ish self-esteem! Nothing seems to work...I have tried toothpaste...it sort of dries them out...sometimes. AND bananagrams is one of my favoritist games. I play it solomio and with Loverbrains when he's home. He argues words but...I'm usually right. AHem!

Let them eat it all at once and get it over with!
SOME mothers just don't have the self control to stay out of their kids candy and do nonsense *ahem* healthy things like ration.
I wouldn't know one of THOSE mothers personally....nom nom nom

I joke that the actual reason we homeschool is because my kids can't keep their pants on!
