A Romantic Evening

I literally did nothing today. I mean it. I laid in my bed and watched hooked on phonics with Carver and snuggled Gannon on the couch. Craig didn’t have to work much so he was home and played video games. I took a nap in the morning AND in the afternoon. I. Did. Nothing.

Except bake a ham.

So when 5 p.m. came around it was a rude awakening when no one had done the laundry or finished making supper and I hadn’t showered and blah blah blah. I was BEHIND and I had to work overnights! The house was a disaster.

I quick threw some side dishes in the oven including green bean cassorole (Craig’s favorite) and look at what I snuck into it!

I’m working harder on incorporating veggies in our meals as much as possible so when I found this at WalMart I was so pumped. Essentially, I mixed one can of the creamy cauliflower with 2 cans of green beans and those crunchy onions. Craig said it tasted AMAZING and he couldn’t even tell a difference.

Surprisingly, I was able to find an amazon link… only if you want to buy 12! HA! https://amzn.to/2SRBW5k

I run upstairs and quick shower then I run back downstairs and throw the food on the table, get everyone scooped up, finally sit down to eat and then I heard the sound no one wants to hear with a mouth full of food…

Gannon threw up all over himself. UGH!

While I was already running late for work and now unable to enjoy my supper like a normal person at a table with their family and not driving in the car on the way to work, I grabbed Gannon, stripped him down and threw him in the tub.

Soon enough Carver gave up on eating too and hopped in the tub. A few moments later I got a tap on the shoulder.

Craig brought me my plate and brought his plate in the bathroom too. We sat on the floor and finished our supper together. It was so sweet. He reassured me it wouldn’t always be this crazy with two little ones. We watched the boys splash around in the tub.

As you can see I clearly have no shame. I’m still in my towel and the boys are in their birthday suits. Craig was the one who actually suggested the picture which was also sweet.

Sweet romantic moments don’t come in candle lit restaurants. They apparently come while bonding over cleaning vomit out of your child’s hair.

    You are definitely living life on the edge with two little boys and parents who are both working (especially with your crazy schedule)!! Looks like a perfect romantic dinner to me. I hope your boys don’t also gift you with a BM in the bathtub like my girls used to do for me!!
