Before I know it, it is evening again. Where did my day go?
If you can all believe this, I have started babysitting two kids three mornings a week. I am doing it out of pure selfishness though! I felt so bad for Hunter that I was sitting in the rocking chair so much with Cavan and the little gopher was getting bored. A friend of mind was looking for a sitter, so it is a win-win situation! Her children are both close in age to Hunter and they all play so well. The mornings with three toddlers in my house go so quickly, but I get an enormous amount of house work done while they play.
Cavan is going down for the night now between 9:30 and 10:30 and wakes up twice during the night. It is a great little schedule we have. The boys and I are all napping for two hours every afternoon which gives me energy to burn in the evenings. That nap allows me to not turn into a tired-grumpy-super-wench when my husband comes home from work.
The only time I am missing is sewing time. I have not touched a mitten since we came home with Cavan. Perhaps if I was able to break my evening internet addiction I could get started again... Aida, how do you have time to sew with the two kids?! I have some new patterns I want to try with the rest of the seal that I have. And I have an idea for a little seal purse I want to try. The wonderful Indigo has been inspiring me.
And an admission- Hunter now watches the Cars movies once a day most days. Yep. That is more than 20 minutes a day! He begs for it as soon as he wakes up in the morning, so that is usually when he watches it. At this rate he is going to burn through that dvd in no time- Tina you had better make us a back up!
And an accomplishment- today I did six loads of laundry and put away four of them! Yep. I did it! Matt usually does all of the laundry in the house, but I thought I would give him a break. I really dislike putting away laundry, so this is a pretty impressive day for me!
Countdown is now on- 5 and a half weeks until Matt starts parent leave!!
