I'm calling it: today is going to be a good day.

It is the last day of summer vacation. All five hundred of my kids are still sleeping. I am up and actually dressed. Ok, not wearing any undergarments I ADMIT but I am not in pajamas. I will probably edit this out.

I'm closely watching the video monitor on Ivy in bed and rolled our two huge cans out to the curb for garbage/recycling pick up. And then quietly made myself an iced chai with rice milk and whipped cream and cinnamon and a straw.

And that's about as far as I got. Everyone's up now.


PS if you've arrived here from AlphaMom today looking for my homebirth story, here ya go!

  4. Oh that sounds divine!

    I want to crawl back into bed. I was up at 5 with an angry toddler.

    I need to shower and start homeschooling... not sure I have it in me :(

    Will you share your Chai? pretty please :)

  5. this made me smile for you.
    it is such a relief to even just get out of pajamas (i think ESPECIALLY without undergarments!) before embracing all the love & needingness. sure, that's not a word...but you know, right?!

  9. This is our first year in school so we never realized how early the kids go back here. I can't believe they start tomorrow!

    tehe, the "all five hundred of my kids" line cracked me up.

  11. That chai sounds lovely.
    Also, Beth, if you're reading this, you can no longer mock me for being naked all the time, because Steph never wears undergaments and that's practically the same!

  12. Yessss. It's going to be a good day.

  13. Sounds like a great start. I hope it is still going well. I feel like every time i "call it" as you say, it either ends up really being a great day OR I end up laughing at how ridiculous it quickly becomes:)

  17. Mmmm, that chai sounds delicious! Hooray for a nice, mellow start to your day. Oh, and undergarments are overrated, so no worries there. ;-)

  18. I read your blog occasionally (and love it!), but this is the first time I'd heard that you had a homebirth! I really enjoy reading these stories as I had my first homebirth last December, and just blogged about it a few months ago. It was amazing. Good stuff.

  20. Iced chai = :)

    Made with rice milk = :0

    What's up with rice milk? Is this a trend I'm unknowingly bucking?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Well, add me to the list: I want a chai, too. Iced with soy milk. Mmm. I wonder if anyone would notice if I snuck out of here ... :)

  22. Good for you getting dressed! I only accomplish that task probably once a week. : )

  23. Wow, I thought I was the only one who felt like I had 500 kids! Funny post.

  24. I would like instructions on how said chai was prepared, please. I need a recipe to brush my teeth.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Well, I cheat and use The Original Oregon Chai in the carton- use equal parts Rice Dream rice milk and chai, add ice, add whipped cream, and sprinkle with cinnamon! : )

  26. Ah, the calm before the storm doesn't last too long, huh!?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh, and why does one need to wear top undergarments with certain babies always pulling up the shirt to snack? I wouldn't know anything about that... ahem.
