A kind of a fuzzy gray zone here.

Another fuzzy gray zone -- certainly filled most days with homemade crafts, organic baking or educational outings.Big Kids are hungry - snack time.
The angels rejoice if Number 3 takes a nap.

* This entire schedule can change without warning at any time due to, but not wholly limited to, the following: vomiting, unexplainable whims of Number 3 (aka The 2 Year Old), lack of naps, acts of God, and the overall disposition of all parties involved.
There are of course the impromtu song and dance shows by Numbers 1 and 2. Or an elaborate choo-choo story to create with Number 3. A little SpongeBob and Go Diego Go. Hugs, kisses.
Plus, watching all the amazing ways The Last Thomas is changing each day- still exciting even after three before him.
It's just that most days blend into the next. It is difficult to know what day of the month it is half the time. I wouldn't change it that much, but hope it doesn't fade into a 20 year blur.
Another day, another story,
