They spent a lot of the afternoon playing picnic. There was some coloring done. Most of it seemed to be on Littler's tummy and limbs. There was a snack of fishy crackers and apple sauce requested. Littler eat lots of crackers and smeared lots of apple sauce all over himself. Which did very interesting things to all that marker ink. He thoroughly enjoyed getting water dumped on him to rinse it all off in the tub though.
While Littler made his messes I was making apple crisp. (There are things I really love about grocery day, like yummy treats.) I attempted peeling the apples in one long peel. I think I pulled it off on one of them. I washed some dishes too. But not all of them. And then I made the crisp so there were even more dishes again. A day doesn't go by that I don't dream of a dishwasher.
It was nothing much of a day. There were some fights, plenty of not doing what they were told. They're still not in bed an hour after bedtime started. But such is life. They also 'nuggled and played, helped and had a bath. An ordinary, run-of-the-mill day with little ones. And it was good.
