The Kids' Log: September 23-29, 2012

Sunday, September 30, 2012

I'm in a crappy mood so pardon this brief update. I was flying solo with the kids this week and we did okay Monday and Tuesday, but by Wednesday Marlie was carrying one when I dropped her off at school and then Desmond came down with a cold that I now have because I was rundown. By the time Damon came home on Thursday night I was exhausted and just wanted a good night's sleep. But I wound up comforting a stuffy infant the whole night and the next. Being tired and congested affected my marathon training yesterday and I was secretly glad we only did 7.5 miles instead of 9. 

On a cheery note, I did win a couple of cool giveaways: 1. a dozen cupcakes, fun bites food cutter and a $25 gc to Daydreaming Gifts from Anderson Angels blog. 2. a Super Undies Nighttime Training Pants from Happy Mothering blog.

Toddler Log: 3 Years and 6 Weeks Old
Marlie was not pleased about daddy being gone and it showed. Everything was a battle. She didn't even want to go to school, which is a first.

I tried my best to distract her with cool projects and even some treats like a little extra TV time. She'd do okay until bedtime and then all heck would break loose. By the time I got her to go to sleep all I wanted to do was fall into my own bed, but there were chores to do and then baby boy would wake up. I don't know how single parents do it.

We did manage some fun like drawing on the huge sheets of paper that the movers used to pack our boxes. And we had a wonderful play date on Friday with one of the moms I met through Mocha Moms who also relocated here recently. She has a 2 yo boy and a 4 yo girl. We have lots in common so talking to her is easy. Marlie and her kids get along fabulously and she is a cool lady, so that's a plus.

Baby Log: 24 Weeks Old
Someone is 6 months old! I'm floored. Didn't I just push him out yesterday?! He caught a nice cold for is half birthday. But he's not letting it slow him down! He had his first babies-only play date this week at IKEA.He got his first taste of meat (the liver and sweet potatoes did not go over well). I made him sweet potatoes and bananas instead. He is sitting up and crawling a few steps. He likes to move it, move it!

Sorry to hear you all caught a cold! That sucked timing-wise. With school just having started and you guys moving, it is no wonder that Marlie fell apart when Damon was gone. Too many changes for a high-maintenance miss! Cool that you've met a like-minded mama with kids in your kids' age range and that get along! That's practically a miracle!
