Well- the last month and a half has been a huge learning curve for me. I went back to work in a completely different field, work completely different hours, and sent all the kids to school. I like my job. But it is harder than I ever would have thought. Just for the record Activity Directors really don't get to play all day. They work really hard and take work home every night just like everyone else. The hours were hard to adjust to as well. Up between 5:15- 5:30, kids up at 6, kids on the bus at 6:30, and me pulling out to head to work as soon as the bus pulls away. Work from 7:15- 4 (or later) everyday. Come home and get the kids from my mother-in-law because the bus drops off a whole 30 minutes earlier than it did last year. I am still trying to figure out housework and laundry with all the homework, practices, and other work that goes on. I am definitely for hiring someone to come clean my house multiple times a week- especially if the wash clothes and iron them.
Miles has started school and thrown me a curve ball. He doesn't talk about it. He hates going. And he is the baby who is not a baby anymore. But he still wants to be a baby. He wants to be carried, he wants to sleep with us at night, and he wants to stay at home. He does not want to grow up. The other three loved school and wanted to be big boys. Miles- not so much.
Josh is a challenge too. My "Mom gut" tells me that there is something going on but state regulations make it hard to even get something happening at schools these days. I am definitely going to become "that mom" that the school hates to see coming before long.
It makes me grateful that the older two are relatively "easy". Other than a really bad attitude on one that is.
I am going to be writing more regularly now that I have a better footing in my life. So I certainly hope that y'all are going to keep reading. :)
