I bought a label maker recently. The boys were each allowed to make a label, so I assumed they'd want them with their names on them (Jon made it very clear that's what he wanted). I had to take Kai into the other room while Isaac made his label, so he made his without supervision. A couple hours later, I went into the bathroom and found this:

Valentine's Day went this way at our house this year: Mark had a crazy software release that didn't go as hoped (he worked overnight, grabbed a couple hours of sleep, then went back to work, and now he's on call for the rest of the weekend), Isaac is still recovering from strep, and I realized that tomorrow I'm hosting a Relief Society meeting at my house that hasn't been cleaned in a few days (marathon cleaning session, anyone?) So we have no fun date to report on, no cute foods or even decorations to show, and didn't even think about making valentines for friends or family this year. What we do have are two awesome schools that make sure our boys have something to do with American cultural celebrations every year.

Apparently, it's the "in" thing in first grade to get strep this week. Isaac wanted to be part of the club. I think he has decided it's not worth it. He was especially bummed at the timing - looks like he'll be missing his class Valentine's Day celebration. He was pretty sad this morning when he realized what was going on.
I'm bummed at his timing because he was up sick all night last night, Mark has a release at work this weekend (meaning he'll be working overnight), Jon has been having nightmares that wake him up frequently, Kai is still not sleeping, and I *just* got over the stomach flu. Feeling more than slightly overwhelmed at the moment. And pretty dang tired.
On the bright side, even exhausted (and with a terribly messy house), I have pretty awesome kiddos.

For Christmas next year, I'm not buying gifts, just the bubble wrap and packaging. The boys all like that best anyway.
