Then I woke up this morning to Wes asking me when I was going to start my day. (Sometimes when Wes is home in the morning and has fixed breakfast for the kids—which is every time that Wes is home in the morning—I like to stay in bed with the covers up to my chin and my laptop on my chest, and I get emailing out of the way, see what's new on Minted, maybe visit Nie Nie, and check out the new Mormon Message. Sue me.) So when I had the second prod at 8:15am ("Are you at least going to take a shower?"), I thought I had better pull out some mom greatness, lest this family starts to think I am being *gasp* lazy. Me? Lazy? In the summer? Nah.
Here's what we did today: PIRATE FORT!!! (OK, it's really a normal fort, but they are WAY more excited when the word "pirate" is involved. Finn and Maya share a tiny room—or "weeny," as Finn would say—and I knew it would be a challenge. But I think I did a bang up job.
I managed to fit a teepee in there. Go me:
(a teepee always passes in pirate play because of Peter Pan)
Maya the lookout:

And, no, I still haven't showered today.
