Light at the end of the Tunnel

It is Friday – the end of week 2 of school. Here are some highlights.

1. V has been successfully sleep trained (as of tonight, and it is only Day 2).
2. V has been using the potty at daycare (self-initiated). Hooray!
3. Both kids are still asleep and its just 7am – AND I’m showered!!!! Yippee.
4. Z has been going to bed by 8:15 pm every night.
5. We’ve reduced device time drastically during the week. He’s back to playing with his toys and only watching The Octonauts after dinner.
6. I like my home room kids. I had fun with them durin Frosh Frolic yesterday.

Looking forward to a nice cool weekend.

Back to School Madness

Ever since school started for Zander as well, I’ve been feeling more stressed. Mornings are a huge rush and I’ve been late to school both days already. We’ve been getting out of the house after 8am, and by the time I drop off M and V, then Z at his school, I get back to my school around 8:45-50 am. This leaves me with no time at all to get anything done.

At night, my time is unpredictable because I don’t know when V will wake. She’s cosleeping and I haven’t had the heart to sleep train her as we’re waiting for her teeth to come in. I know I’m going to have to soon since we have curriculum night coming up in less than 2 weeks. Thinking about it stresses me our even more.

As I lie here nursing her back to sleep, I’m feeling exhausted. I had just left her room to go downstairs around 9:10pm, and no more than 10 minutes ago did I have to come back up
Because she woke up crying. Not sure what’s happening with her but I’m pretty much up here, unable to do any school work.

Wait, daycare told me V was doing potty training today and used the potty three times. Maybe that’s why. In any case, I’m very happy she’s taking an interest in it.

(My left eye is hurting and I can’t see clearly since I fell asleep with my contacts on. I need to shower but don’t want to shower my sleepiness off so am going to have to do it early tomorrow instead.)

Productive Day

I don’t know if it’s the mere fact that there are less than three days left until back to work, but all of a sudden, we got super productive.

In the morning, we worked in our crafts business, http://www.lulumika.com, making toddler girl bracelets, as well as superhero cuffs.

After the kids went to bed, I cooked up two batches of soup – Zucchini and Roasted Cauliflower, and Leek and Potato. It felt great to finally cook the veggies that have been begging to be eaten in the fridge. They would also make great lunches for school!

This morning, I got my timetable in my email so I finally got a chance to retype it, color coding the classes. I feel much better now that I have my schedule at least. I’d need to work on plans next and go over the times as well. Still more work to come m

Next Sun is Zs school party so we need to get the plans underway for that as well. Lots of work to do. M was working on the computer to create Super Hero Passports.
