Wednesday, March 18th
6:54am Woken up by the little girl calling me from her room. Early wake up due to another accident in the bed. Got her bed stripped, little girl changed. Asked her to hang out for a bit so I can get 20 more minutes of sleep.
7:30 More "Mommy"s and crying. Hungry, hurt herself, doesn't want to be in her room.
7:45 Making breakfast. More crying because she doesn't want egg.
8:00 Eat breakfast. Egg and feta scrambles on whole wheat English muffins. Crying for cartoons.
8:15 Crying for candy. Since when do we eat candy in the morning? Mom is going to be crying soon. I could not fall asleep last night so am tired and have had no coffee yet. Need caffeine!
8:20 Cartoon (15 min Sprout show) and vitamins. I get dressed and ready to leave for school. Wishing it was a drop off day. Co-op work day for me this morning. Sink full of dishes will have to wait until later, as will the washer full of wet, stinky sheets and pajamas.
8:40 Walk to school. The walk and the cool morning should help refresh me. Little girl is very quiet in the BOB on the way over. It's like she knew I needed it. Ahhh. Hope someone has already made the coffee.
9:00-12:00 School time. Didn't get coffee until almost 10! 23 four and five year olds, 3 teachers and 8 parents... Sometimes this is harder than when I had 18 kids and just me. How can that be? In charge of art. Lots of glitter! Need lots of coffee! Oh no, glitter in my coffee.
I do get some adult conversation in, though. That was nice.
12:20 walk home. Much warmer out now. Get lunch ready while E waits for a friend to come over. Gets a little sad when learns she won't be coming until later in the afternoon.
1-1:30 Lunch of fruit and toaster waffles. They were whole wheat. :)
1:30-2:45 Rest time. Little girl is in her room playing. Calling for me after only 20minutes. Continues the whole time. Time tacked on to end to make up. No nap for me.
3:30- P over for a play date. While they tear up the room, I prep for dinner, wash the stinky sheets from this morning, and type up my review of The Witch of Painted Sorrows to post tomorrow. The girls were very cute playing Cinderella outside. Running up the stairs, losing the shoe, bringing it over to see if it fits. Loved listening to them act it out.
4:45- P picked up. M brings over an onion so I can make my sauce for dinner.
5:00- Make dinner while the little girl watches some Disney,Jr.
6:00- Dinner! We have baked broccoli and chicken pesto stuffed shells. One of the meals I made with our Make Ahead Moms and Dads. Much better with the added sauce. The shells were dry last time. Little girl refused the broccoli but ate up the shells.
7:00- Bedtime routine commences. First, FaceTime with Daddy, who is out of town for work. Brush teeth, potty, pajamas and book. She chooses another Magic School Bus book. Now I wait for the little girl to fall asleep because she throws a fit if I leave the room. Need to break her of this habit, especially now that it takes her forever to fall asleep. What happened to 20 minutes! An hour is way to long sitting here waiting for her to sleep.
7:55- Little girl is asleep! Yay! She was quick tonight. Time for a shower then a glass of wine. Have to finish knitting a baby blanket for a shower next weekend and continue assembling the lights for the shower all while watching some TV. iZombie and The Sound of Music special with Diane Sawyer .
11:00- tv off, clean up kitchen, get ready for bed.
11:30- read a chapter or two of my book for book group. Daemon by Daniel Saurez.
11:45- get distracted by games on my iPad.
12:30- lights out and attempt to sleep. Probably fall asleep an hour later.
