So as i sit here yawning my face away , i thought id take a few minutes to post here …
So this week was the 1st official week of school , my daughter & son both started last week but the long weekend and holidays screwed it all up…. Since we had elections on tuesday the kids had no school so it made the transition of back to school confusing..
Nate being so far , i never got to experience the whole, getting up early to get them fed , dressed and make sure everything is in the book bag , pack the lunchbox and send them off to school . So with Gabby , its a little harder on me because this is so new to me . This week twice i had to listen to the ‘ Im too sick to go to school” or the ” Can i sleep for 5 more mins” and if you say yes to that 5 mins agreement , your looking at 15 mins ..not 5 … then you get the fight when youve had enough of waiting and she wont listen…. Then i need to deal with my 3 yr old fussing and crying because HE WANTS TO GO TO SCHOOL TOO!!! So He cries, the 2 yr old chimes in and then what….. They wake the baby….. Oh dear lord help us all! lol
Thoses are my mornings lately , so now i truly know the meaning of Thank god its friday …. I cant WAIT til tomorow morning where i dont have to rush and deal with it all. Theres always something else to do though, like re-arrange theses rooms for a better sleeping schedual for gabby. Right now we live in a 3 bedroom apartement , Gabrielle shares a room with Max my 3yr old , But max is the child who will need to get more or less 5 warnings to go back to bed before he actually falls asleep… so what does he do in the meantime of getting his warnings? He giggles , sneaks toys into his bed and basicly annoys the heck out of his sister making it hard for her to get to sleep on time for school the next morning.
Nicolas is currently in his own room because he is also the child that i have to go put back into bed at least 20 times everynight before he stays in there. Mikey is still sharing a room with us since he got up during the night , he still does but its more of a one time a week thing and he goes to bed easy compared to my 2 other boys.
So this is what im doing this weekend and today , switing gabby from the room with max to a room with Mikey. Nicolas will be taking gabby’s place and sharing a room with max and mommy and daddy get their room back! NOW THATS FANTASTIC!!! When Nate comes over we have a air matress we put in one of the rooms and he ”camps out” there. So this has to work until we get a bigger place with more rooms .
Today the boys are something else , nothing i say is taken seriously , nothing i do is appreciated and well anything i ask is unheard. Ugh , story of my life and well its only gonna get worst ( teen years) until it gets better ( adulthood) I love my kids to the moon and back but could one SIMPLE day happend? Just so i can see what it feels like.
Have a great weekend everyone!
