Tonight was the best evening I have had in a very long time. My mom had the kids today and I got to spend some time with another MOM in Evansville. When I went to pick the kids up they were ready to go. When we got home I took them straight from the van to their stroller. I was trying to keep the evening somewhat stress free. Plus, Rob did lots of cleaning today and I wanted it to last until tomorrow at least. So, we went on a long walk. They love walks. I got back to the house about 6:30 and got them settled. I got things unloaded and put away for a few minutes while they got reacquainted with the living room. It's amazing how happy they are to come home from being away for a day. About 6:45 I went in there and sat on the floor for a few minutes. It wasn't long and Landon was coming to me with his silky and begging to cuddle. I never let him down in that area. He is my only cuddler therefore, I take every opportunity I can get. He was exhausted. He was really ready to go to sleep so I put him in bed at 7:10. He is our only kid who genuinely loves sleeping. He runs to his bed at nap and bed time. After I got him settled I went out to play with the others. Peyton was in the goofiest mood I have ever seen. I was sitting on the floor against the couch. He was running from me to the gate at the TV and back again. I would catch him in my arms and kiss him and he couldn't control his laughter. In between trips Syd would fling herself backwards for me to catch her and flip her over. Ethan was taking his turn running into my arms and Jenna was playing quitely by herself on the riding toys. I was giving out all the kisses I could before they took off. Peyton has figured out how to kiss (kind of). He had his mouth open and I would push my cheek up to his mouth. He would crack up! I started turning my head back and forth so he was kissing both cheeks. He was laughing so hard! He then noticed that it was even more fun to stick his tongue out while I was turning my face back and forth. Before I was a mom I never thought I would enjoy being licked by my kids. It was so funny. Gross, but funny. They all went to bed happy and exhausted. Tonight was a snapshot of what I always wanted my life to be like (unfortunately Rob was at work). No one was fighting, crying, sick or hungry. Everyone was happy and I was their favorite person in the whole world.
