By the time we got home it was past the boys' bedtime and yet they were starving from all the swimming. They gulped down some toast and fruit and were practically asleep before their heads hit their pillows. It was a wonderful night all around.
I had to drag them out of bed this morning in order to get to school on time, but they had incentive. Today is "crazy hair day" at school and I promised the boys I would spike their hair and dye it red. I had some left over Kool-Aid from this past summer that worked perfectly as the dye. I felt like I was a punk kid in high school (I loved dying my hair red, blue, or purple) all over again.
The boys were very pleased with their results. Joey had a red mohawk and Tommy had sharp, red spikes. They were so excited to go to school and show everyone. It was definitely worth the red dyed fingers I will most likely have for days.
And of course Ben didn't want to miss out on the fun so I teased his hair up a bit too. Though I did skip the red dye. I think that was a smart decision. I can just picture him running his fingers through his hair and then touching all my cream walls and tan carpeting.
It's a fun fest around here, I tell ya! The fun never ends!
