So, have you ever had a day that you just felt insanely anxious? Like no matter what you did, you just had this feeling, this anxious feeling? Yeah, that was yesterday. Hindsight (with it being 20/20 and all) shows me that because we were running late all morning, and almost late to school, and had to scrape the windshield, and bring snack time, and sharing time, and, and, and, that's what caused my anxiety.
Wednesday morning, my eyes popped open at 3:38 am. And I was stuck. I knew that I wouldn't be able to fall asleep, and I had a lot of 'work' I needed to do in order to stock my shop on Cong-Fu. I decided to get up, and work, instead of attempt to fall back to sleep for 2 hours before my darling boys woke up. So I did everything I needed to do with Cong-Fu and then the boys woke up. And I'm pretty sure they didn't nap. (I can't really remember though, because my lack of sleep makes the whole day blurry.) Anyway, there is a point to this story. Thursday morning, the boys, amazingly enough, slept until 8:00!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! While in most ways, it was absolutely fabulous, that puts us approximately one hour behind schedule, on a school day! So I had to drag Julian, literally, kicking and screaming, downstairs to get dressed and shoveled in a quick breakfast!
He does this new thing, he doesn't want to go anywhere? I'm so confused, but it's such a battle to literally wrestle him dressed! He had snack time at school, so I had to cut up the bananas, and get the string cheese ready to go. So I finally bundle everyone up in their parkas, and then head to the car. And my windshield was alllll icy! So I had to scrape after putting my monsters into their carseats.
Amazingly, we were not late to preschool, and Julian was able to share his snack and his monkey "Henry" so the day was a success. But I couldn't shake the feeling of dread.
Today is a better day. I feel encouraged, rather than discouraged (Angela, what is the opposite of discouraged?!:))
Some cutie cute pictures:
Gabriel this morning, after breakfast, I'm afraid. Excuse the bananas
Julian fell asleep, sitting up, with his mouth open like that?!
