A fabulous day in 12 easy steps

1. Stay up really really late the night before.
2. Let kids watch movies non-stop all morning.
3. Decide to take kids out for lunch an hour after you normally eat.
4. Make sure kids delay leaving for at least an hour - clothes, shoes, potty...
5. Have a relaxing lunch with your crazy, insane, manic, whiny wonderful children.
6. Spend 45 minutes in a tiny restaurant bathroom with 3 kids, 2 of whom have to poop.
7. Go grocery shopping.
8. Find that your daughter has created something wonderful when you get paged by pick up your kids from the grocery childcare center.
9. Experience another lovely trip to the bathroom with your children.
10. Make your way home with your crazy, insane, manic, whiny wonderful children.
11. Spend at least an hour coaxing, pleading, yelling bonding with your kids while getting them ready for bed.

And last but not least...
12. Be sure to spill a giant container of watermelon on the floor before you head to bed.
