Busy boys

I try to keep our schedules pretty open and flexible. We're not usually that super busy family that's always on the go. The boys seem to enjoy the open play time and I like to not be super stressed. (Judging from the other people I know, I am in the minority.)
But the holiday season really books up our calendars. While I love the holidays, I'm already spent.

And I think this week may be just as busy as last week. It's ok when it's just me that's run ragged...

but all of the events are taking their tolls on the boys. Kind of. Baby Plum had a 5 - 10 minute nap on Friday. He slept well that night, but both boys were up 2 hours past their bedtimes on Saturday, and they were up an hour late this evening. Tomorrow night promises to be more of the same, and I fear that I'm setting Little Elvis up for bad days at school.

If Baby Plum is cranky, I know why. But Little Elvis' teachers have 19 other kids to deal with, and don't know that he's been kept out late because his mommy can't say no.

I'm also a fan of being not-too-busy.

I love the first photo. Hope that Little Elvis pulls through at school! Sometimes, mine surprise me with their stamina...
