Day in the life -- Thursday, April 17

Why is this taking so long to put together?!? I swear every time I've sat down to write this post, some one or the other needs something or cries or something!! I've been trying for a week. Anyhoo... here goes nothing.

Today is (was) Thursday April 17, 2014. Monster is 2.5 years old and Goo is 3.5 months old.

12-6 am
Feed baby, crawl back in bed, pray for more sleep x2

6-6:30 am
Feed baby, replace pacifier, hope for more sleep

Wake up, JT overslept, rush to get monster ready, Goo crying too

Monster and dad leave. Play with Goo, change diaper, feed baby, watch tv, feed self. Baby naps, clean bathroom, laundry, feed cats, do dishes, take out garbage and other things I get distracted by like the mail. 

Goo is awake, we play, practice sitting, tummy time, check the weather, schedule a massage (Christmas gift from my mom!), get Easter clothes ready, text JT and Annie, more tv, more playing, feed baby, eat lunch, look for jobs, work on resume. 

Feed baby, talk to JT, drink caribou (yum!), shower, change baby x2, fight baby to sleep, laundry, hold sleeping baby (aww), read blogs, check instagram and twitter, watch twins game, mail time, feed baby more, monster comes home

Not many pictures from this time of day due to screaming children... and frustration. 
Start supper, screaming baby (oy! for an hour!), Monster screams too (not to be left out), Monster takes a late nap, hold the pacifier so baby sleeps..., try to eat supper, watch TV, eat frozen blueberries.

Nana arrives. Jt and I go to yoga. Get home, take out garbage. Monster to bed. Goo to bed. Feed him again, fight sleep again, I read, JT watches hockey game. Fight baby to sleep some more... what is with him today? Finally I crash out and hope that Goo stays asleep.

We went to visit a preschool class this morning with monster. She seemed to have fun playing with all the kids and teachers. It was kind of hard to watch but good at the same time, seeing her with all those other kids around her age.

It was an integrated class where half of the kids had needs, be it language delay or something like that, and half were "normal" kids. I think it's a good idea for monster to be exposed to a regular classroom and regular preschool, and language, hopefully that would help to advance her skills quicker than being in just a special ed class. Though, one day would be just the "special" kids and the other two would be with all the kids.

I can't believe she is so old. It's hard to watch. Probably because she's not walking and talking yet, I don't see her as a big girl but still as my baby.

Along the same lines, we had a contractor come out to give us a bid on building a wheelchair ramp off the back of the house. We'll probably have him do a deck and a new sliding screen door out there too! Very exciting, you know except for the fact that monster needs a wheelchair... I'm hoping she won't need it for much more than transportation to school and back. I'd better start pinning some ideas for the first days of school and for the exterior of the house. Lots of fun updates and work to be done!!!
