We had an incredibly lazy day yesterday. Either I win the negligent housekeeper award or the funnest mom award, because the big boys had a sensational time building a fort in the front room with the couch cushions and anything else they could find. The jungle gym kept them busy for hours, while Leif had his morning nap and I read Uncle Tom's Cabin (which I have got to get finished before our book club meeting!).
I have wonderful childhood memories of building blanket forts with my sisters in our family room. (Although mom's memories are likely not as fond as ours.) Maybe that is why I get a big grin on my face watching the boys. (And, yes, they are jumping on the cushions...bad mom!)
We had a big clean-up session before lunch, and then Leif and Luke both had afternoon naps. Levi spent an hour in the bathtub (he seems to find it very relaxing) while listening to his newest Jim Weiss CD, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.
I would have used Jennefer's great idea for our rainy day, but then I would have had to clean my floor. Nah. We'll save that for another day.
The sun peeked out this morning and the boys headed outside in their jammies and bare feet to find some mud puddles. (I know. Bad mom.)
What do you do on wet, gray, lazy days during the summer?
