Weekend Shenanigans - When It Rains, It Pours

Monday, August 17, 2015

Another week along with another weekend that has passed.  Seriously, every weekend I think, "I could use another day."  But it never magically appears.
What if...

Last week was our first full week back at school for everyone.  Luckily things went off without a hitch and both kids are loving school more and more.  The teachers in Lola's room seemed a bit devastated when I shared that this would be a temporary placement for Lola since I plan on keeping her home with me once baby comes.  I do have to say that I love that her teachers seem to love her just as much as we do.  Cohen has taken quite a liking to Pre-K this year with all of his old buddies.  This weekend he was sharing some things he learned include the fact that there are seven days in a week along with all the days of the week.  The teacher within was quite impressed and I'm excited to see what my little sponge will suck up in the upcoming weeks before he heads to Kindergarten next year.

But what's a first full week without illness, right?  

Friday evening was Kurtis' family night at work.  I'm so mad I didn't take my camera because I could have taken some amazing shots of Cohen on the FlowRider machine and Lola splashing in the kiddy pool.  Parenting fail right there.  Saturday was hot and humid.  Kurtis was on call so it was just me and the kiddos.  Poor Lola has been placed on a morning Miralax regime after her sad afternoon Saturday.  When she woke up from nap all she did was cry and want to be held, which is nothing like that child.  We tried to cheer her up in the pool, which worked for about 10 minutes and then she wanted to be held the rest of the evening.

Sunday morning we awoke to another sunny day but this time my sweet little girl's nose was stuffed to the brim.  Seriously, can't the kid catch a break?  Luckily after a brief morning catnap she seemed back to herself a bit more and was ready to tackle the afternoon.  When Kurtis got home from work he took Cohen on a long bike ride and fishing while Lola (and Mama) enjoyed a three hour nap.  They ventured to the basement to cool down with toons and apparently a nap.  I guess everyone around here naps...but me.  
Hello.  I'm the pregnant one here.

But it's time to attack a new week full of busy plans.  Football practice, doctor appointments and the transferring of rooms is all on the agenda.  Our goal is to have Lola transition into her big girl bed on Friday.  Wish us luck.

Cheers to another Monday past - and one less Monday spent pregnant.
