International Women's day 2012 and my day so far

Still in my pjs at 2pm
I have not had a shower or brushed my hair, or have changed from my pjs.
Zalia is currently bf and about to go to sleep*. Joaquin is playing quietly and just before this he was counting to 100, trying to reach infinity. He asked me "Is there more numbers than letters?" I said "yes, we do not know how many numbers there really are".

So far today I have:
-woken up at 6.25am, and got out of bed at 6.30am just after Jas gave me a kiss goodbye and left for work
-Went to toilet and spoke to mum on the phone
-calmed down an upset 4 year old that could not find me when he woke up and thought that due to the rain there was a big storm and the glass windows would break
-breastfed my 22 month old after she woke up
-tried to calm my 22 month old down who still wanted to bf more but I insisted on putting on the Wiggles on the iPhone to distract her
-ventured into kitchen without a 22 month old hanging from my right breast (yippee)
-Made pancakes for breakfast
-gave 3 pancakes with honey to starving 4 year old

-made fruit salad for 22 month old who only ate grapes and did not want pancakes
-chatted on Skype with my parents
