It Oughta Be Against the Law

To have to roll my ass out of bed at 6:15 am on a Saturday morning for anything! I don't think I do this even for shopping and we all know I am a diehard shopaholic!!!
But yesterday (after babysitting for the 3S's the night before) we got up to go watch Tegan play his last football game in Necedah. You guessed it, this means we also had to wake up and dress a 2 year old, a 3 year old and a 5 year old to take along with us. Does this sound like fun to you???? Sydney and Sadie weren't too much trouble but Sailor is the cranky, don't touch me, or talk to me type when she first wakes up so she did not want to get dressed. I thought we were going to have to take her in her jammies there for a while but she finally let me put her clothes on just seconds before we walked out the door. Score one for Grandma! Then we packed all 3 girls plus Grandpa , Grandma and Carla, Tegan and his football stuff in the van and headed to Necedah. Thank God for travel mugs of coffee! the kids on the other hand were eating powder sugar doughnuts (just what you need-kids on sugar highs when trapped in a confined space). I heard giggles, Carla get me, don't touch me and stop that for the next hour and 15 minutes. All the while this is going on George is driving the van and not hearing any of this because he has that hearing problem ( he hears only what he wants to). You know this is true because he hears the radio just fine and is singing along to the oldies being played. We finally get there and pile out of the van to head on back to the field and of course we need to make a potty stop first. Sadie wants to go in the stall by herself and the proceeds to tell me (and anyone else within hearing distance) not to look at her butt, that she is pooping, I am wiping, now I am flushing and pulling up my pants. In other words a play by play of what was going on in her stall along with a little singing while she was doing her thing. During the game, there wasn't much to keep the girls occupied so they played in the dirt and got filthy!! So before they got back in the van, I washed them up as good as I could in the bathroom. Then Grandpa treated all of them to Starbursts(more sugar highs for the ride home!!!! Yeah Thanks Grandpa.
By the way Tegan's team won 22-0. They only lost one game the whole season so they did pretty darn good. Next year though can we make the games a little later in the day or a little closer to home so I don't have to get up so early??

Ahh so glad we leave in a bigger city so I don't have to get up early to go to Carrin's kids games.
