It's been a long day.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I'm in awe of single parents - particularly parents who aren't in a shared custody situation. Today my DH left before the kids got up, and it's his night "off" so he won't be home for another hour or so. It makes for a long day with my darling cherubs. Daughter was off at baby swap this morning, so I came home and was ALONE. IN MY HOUSE. That almost never happens! I really wanted to spend my 2 hours on making things, but I was responsible and did a little cleaning and then swapped out all of the girl's clothes for the next size up. I packed up 3.5 big garbage bags to pass along to a friend (who is a single mom to three), and another bag of boy stuff to pass along as well. I think we're pretty well set for spring and summer clothes for the kids. It's crazy to be thinking ahead, since there's still 3 feet of snow out there, but it's coming, I know it is!

I also managed to yoga today. It's not relaxing, exactly, to have a small person chattering away and lying on top of you, but she's good company. I haven't done anything physical since I hurt my foot a week and a half ago, so it felt really really good to move my body. My foot isn't 100%, for sure, but I didn't make it worse.

So, I knit approximately 4 rows on a hat and that's about it. I also didn't take any pictures today! I need to get pictures of all the kids and their haircuts...which they all gave themselves.

My 5 yo cut his hair the other week. Thankfully, it's not too bad. I think it's funny that ALL kids cut their own hair at some point!
