I also learned that you can skate-board in Barbie convertibles. They are the perfect size if you are two. (I just realized how the Barbies made it upstairs!)
My third lesson of the morning is that if you are hoping for a tractor ride, the perfect combination is na-na (which means no shirt,) Tori's cool brown boots that are four sizes too big and green gardening gloves. Elijah was pretty worked up about wearing his boots or any other gloves - it had to be the brown boots and green gloves if you want to ride the blue tractor!
A side note on the na-na is that he really doesn't ever want to wear a shirt these days. He goes for it if I tell him that he can't go by-bye without one, but other than that, na-na is the way! I do insist that he wear a jammie shirt to bed, since I think he'd get cold, but that usually involves some crying!
My fourth and final lesson is that tired Mommas and sick kids are no fun on Monday mornings! I want someone to come take this crew of coughing, sneezing, snot-producers that showed up at my house this weekend and bring back my more pleasant, healthy kids!
