Gotta love sleeping in, except when it results in a rush to get ready! Elizabeth and Mary Claire were both up to nurse at 6:15, so I took Elizabeth to bed to nurse and Andrew took Mary Claire. Well, Elizabeth and I fell asleep and Mary Claire did NOT...
Fast forward to 7:30, and I finally wake up and get Elizabeth up to find out that Mary Claire has been up for more than an hour!
Now, the thing with twins is this: It's all well and good to let one sleep in when they're not on any sort of nap schedule, but once they're on a regular schedule, you MUST wake the other twin within 30 minutes or so of the other, or schedules are ruined for the day!
So we'll see how today goes... They both took almost nonexistent naps while I was at Mass with the big kids, so hopefully they'll take long-ish naps in the afternoon. Except we'll probably have to wake them to go to the parish picnic this afternoon. So... Early bedtime?
Anyway, that late wake-up meant I had to rush to get breakfast ready and shower and get dressed by 8:15. Hence the missing makeup and makeshift muumuu - no time to check the outfit in the mirror!
I do love pattern mixing but I don't really think it worked this time...
I was thankful for my veil this morning for entirely vain reasons... The comb in our bathroom has disappeared, so I had to throw my hair up in a wet messy bun and the veil covered the tangles nicely!
Despite my outfit fail, John Paul and Cecilia were both pretty darned cute in their secondhand outfits - I love consignment stores and consignment sales for the kids!
Their Mass behavior was decent... John Paul once again started getting very upset that he still doesn't get to receive communion. And I reminded him that fussing about not receiving is a VERY clear sign that he's not ready for his first communion!
Cecilia saw a VERY large bug under the pew and started loudly exclaiming, "Dere's a bug in Mass! Dere's a BUG in MASS!!!"
But you know, no fighting, no serious temper tantrums, so it could have been worse.
Have a blessed Sunday! This post brought to you by a borrowed activity table that has been occupying all 4 children for the past 30 minutes...
