Calmer day?

God I'm hoping its a calmer day today. Kids ended up not going to the party as their behaviour was just dreadful, so had two crying, angry kids in the end. Not started well this morning as Caitlin seems to be in a strop with everyone but ah well. Shes easier than Cameron as he has huge meltdowns, she just sulks. We were planning on having a trip to the park today, but as its freezing and threatening rain the kids wanted to stay home and make a 'fun list'. This is an idea I made up over the holidays to keep kids happy while Mark and I had some time to relax or do jobs. Each of us has a list of things to do with the kids, today mine has 'model making, cooking, painting and computer games' while marks has 'playdough, golf, tv, board game' (nice simple stuff to supervise) we each take it turns to do something with the kids from the list while the other does whatever. My turn was first and Cameron choose cooking, so we made pancakes :) I love pancakes, not to eat granted just to make, lol, they're SO easy and the kids love them. For those who don't know how to make them this is the recipe I use 1 cup plain flour 1 cup milk 2 eggs 1 teaspoon vannila essence mix it all up and pour into frying pan. :) You can add bits like chocolate chips or fruit but mine dont like that (strange kids, Id add chocolate to pretty much everything lol)
Well jobs to be done today! Mainly ironing, dinner, sausage cassarole, is in the slow cooker so just need to make some mash to go with that. Caitlins now out of her sulk and playing on Cams ds so fingers crossed the peace remains!
