Our day home was going to be closed for two weeks and I thought it would be the perfect time to spend some extra time with my youngest… That time has already come to an end and I feel completely different than I thought I would.
I thought by now I would be counting down the hours until I went back into the office, stressed out from how difficult it was to get work done with Cordelia demanding constant attention, struggling with getting Bobby ready for school and then getting him to and from school every day. I thought I’d be begging for adult interaction or an excuse to do my makeup. It would be easier if that was how I felt right now.
I think I should change the tagline of my blog to ‘better late than never’, this month has completely gotten away from me. Obviously I have dropped the ball on my goal of posting 3x a week and I’ll write a post at some point about my current slump, but today I wanted to share highlights from our little Easter weekend.
It’s the first time since Christmas that we were able to spend this much time together as a family, and it was so wonderful. We played board games, painted eggs, watched movies, and of course had an egg hunt! Easter weekend is the only time I don’t have to bug the kids to clean their rooms or pick up their toys because we have told them the Easter Bunny only leaves eggs in clean rooms ♥.
I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited to start a new month – February was a tough one. Like I mentioned in My Kingdom for a Good Night’s Sleep, Bobby was really sick for two weeks. It started at the end of January… we had just bought him a new loft bed for his birthday, and he had gone upstairs to lie down because he just wasn’t feeling fantastic. 20 minutes later I heard ‘mommy…’ and ran upstairs to see that he had gotten sick… from the top step of his new bed. We got him cleaned up and set him up on a pad on the floor and spent the next 4 hours cleaning his entire room because it. was. everywhere.
