So we had a holiday week. (For the record I don't remember getting a whole week off for Thanksgiving). I have to say it was pretty enjoyable. I of course took the year off from volunteering and cooking. That might have had something to do with it.
Guilty Mama Confession.
I write these next few sentences as a guilty mother. N-Zilla and The Lilith (baby sister) were sick, because they were sick the house was pretty quite. The mess factor was down to a code blue. That's a good thing. The Todds spent their days laying on my bed watching Little Einsteins only lifting there heads to "drink" their food and take fever reducing medication. The occasional nap, diaper change and story time. Vacation with the Todds was a cinch.
I prepared weeks in advance for the holiday (Thanksgiving). I went to the store buying early Christmas presents for the N-Zilla so he and us could enjoy our Thanksgiving dinner out. Had a sensory bag locked and loaded for both of the Todds really. I even designated a spot in the van for the bags. I was Mama hear me roar.

Thanksgiving Dinner and other Social Engagements
As with most babies, toddlers and kids their is a social time limit. We are learning N-Zilla's. We know now that it's okay to excuse ourselves from the table and take a little walk with him until the food comes. We know to always have the Thomas the Bag ready and two Lighting Mc Queen cars handy AT ALL TIMES.

We are on a time limit. (Any one with kids or pets waiting at home could say the same thing.)
We are on a time limit at Birthday parties. At game night. Shopping etc. N-Zilla our Loveable and Destructive Alarm sends us signals when to go. We have to excuse ourselves a little bit earlier. Hoping that we don't offend our host if we leave to early or praying that nothing is broken if we stay to late.
I'm Thankful for...
No matter what time we have to leave any where...I'm still so flipping happy that I enjoyed a whole week of vacation with all four kids home. Plus the weekend.
