Back To The Grind

Today was supposed to be a "normal" day for us. Unfortunately Brennan's mouth gear fell out of his head again last night. His orthodontist has two offices and unfortunately today he was at the office as far away from us as possible and still be considered Kansas City.

We got together this morning after bathing all 5 kids (that is a days worth of work in itself) and then headed over to East Overland Park. The kids had asked if they could have burgers off the dollar menu after the appointment and since it was at 11:30 I conceded.

Just as we were leaving the office the nice secretary stopped me and handed me 4 coupons for 4 children's meals at Red Robin. There was a Red Robin just 2 miles from the doctor so I thought a sit down meal for free was definitely better than the dollar menu at McD's!

I honestly don't think I've gone to a sit down meal with all 5 kids by myself. They did fantastic and loved being able to order their own meals. Normally Jared and I try to be as frugal as possible and they often share an adult portion.

I think it is fair to say the kid's new favorite place to eat is Red Robin with their never ending basket of fries. Anneliese ate her weight in fries and Graham thought his pizza was the "cutest pizza ever." He kept thanking the waitress with his deep voice and big bug eyes. He's hilarious.

We swung by JoAnne's on the way home where I found some fantastic fabrics and two new patterns so I can change it up a bit. Their patterns were on sale for $.99 each! The original price was $15.95. I'm really excited to try out them out and the fabrics are amazing. Keep and eye out over the next week in my Leesy K Shop I'm really hoping to double my inventory. I've yet to sell a bag and apparently the more I have listed the more traffic I'll get.

Once we got home it was 2:30 so I laid the babies down and jumped right into school. Whew, it was a crazy day! I'm really hoping for a restful day tomorrow with some normalcy mixed in.
