A day of rest
When Bill & I became parents, I thought we would never get the chance to chill out like we used to. Yesterday I was proven wrong. It was great.

Logan woke up at his usual time, 8:00 am. We played in the living room & watched cartoons like we always do. Since it was Easter, we had plans for an Easter egg hunt in the back yard but it was snowing. Bill made a big breakfast for us with pancakes, sausage & the like. Logan loved his breakfast, having pancakes for the first time. The cold, dreary weather made me really, really sleepy. It did the same for Bill. He ended up taking a morning nap on the couch while I got the kitchen cleaned up after breakfast.

After the morning past, I was falling back asleep on the couch when Bill said that I should just go back to bed & he would get Logan's lunch taken care of. I jumped at the chance. I took a really long 2 or 3 hour nap. I woke up just as Logan was going down for his afternoon nap. Bill got Logan to bed & took another nap himself. I don't think we've ever slept this much since Logan's been born. Even Logan was ultra sleepy. Well, it was only because after breakfast he figured out how to climb up onto the couch, turn around & straight up jump off, with no fear. He laughed & laughed as he flew off the couch, landing on the pillow crash pad I made for him on the floor. This wore him out like never before.

After the rotating naps & lazy day play, Bill made an amazing Italian dinner while I got Logan ready for a bath. He splashed everywhere & played with his Crayola bath markers that he got in his Easter basket. He loved coloring the tile orange. I got him in bed just as Bill finished getting dinner ready. We ate manicotti, had a couple of glasses of wine & watched the new season of The Sopranos. It was a really nice chill out day & a great, non-traditional Easter.

Sounds like the three of y'all had a good Easter. I would love to have a lazy day. Haven't seen one in forever with the two kids I have. Glad you had such a great day!

That sounds like such fun! /maybe I should try the couch thing with P, as she loves to climb. Hope you let Logan eat tons of candy!
