I used to hate Mondays. I love them now. It is the day after an awesome weekend filled with non-stop activity, birthday parties and family time. Mondays can be a slow start, but since our family thrives on routine, the kids look forward to going to school and I look forward to cleaning up the weekend's mess!
Poor hubby has no routine! Since his work schedule is so erratic, I don't know where he is half the time. Being a rural family doctor, he is either at the hospital ER, his office, the walk-in clinic, after-hours administrative meetings, at a medical course or off to deliver a baby! We are very fortunate that daddy can work in the same town and does not have to be away from us for weeks at a time. So yes, family time with mommy AND daddy is a special thing and not to be taken for granted.
The kiddies really enjoyed lunch with daddy yesterday. He had to rush off to deliver a baby in the middle of church but came home in time to share a Muffin Tin lunch.
In our lovely muffin tin and silicone cups: last night's baby corn, carrot and sugar pea medley, apple slices, organic red corn tortilla chips, crunchy & sweet green grapes, imitation crab, savory Caesar salad croutons and some sliced black olive & cheese bites. It was a light lunch as the kiddies had some birthday cake beforehand.
I really like our new weekend tradition where the children gather around our special picnic quilt and enjoy lunch together.
