A bad day a good day

Yesterday we had plans to hop on the metro and head into DC to the Air and Space Museum. We woke up and began getting ready, and then it all fell apart. I can sum it up in just a few words...sassy kids..mouthing off...messy MESSY rooms...laundry...mad mommy..mad trip. So the kids spent most of the day learning responsibility and cleaning their rooms and washing and folding laundry. Maybe next time they won't throw clean clothes in the dirty pile or shove clean folded clothes in the closet after seeing how much work it takes.

While they slaved and the husband oversaw, I went out to the fabric store. I found two cute flannel patterns to make into blankets for the baby, as well as a bunch of remnant flannel to be made into wipes and some good fleece to make into diaper doublers,also remnant.

So today was a new day and we decided to give the trip to DC a go again. While we had some bumps, we made it out the door and on our way and everyone perked up. We had a nice visit to the museum and while Gray was a bit over excited and had a hard time listening, he also is sick so we gave him a bit of slack. They had a fun day, we hit Wegmans on the way home and then made it back in time to grill up some burgers and the kids played outside. Back to the grind tomorrow!
