HF, let's hear it for progress! Glad to know things are moving along. Forgive us for stalking you... inquiring minds wanna know, ya know?
Sherri, YAY for getting your girls home tonight! How are you feeling?
Jacqueline, good luck with the single mama act over the next week. That can be so difficult. Hope you get some time to yourself on Sun to break it up.
Hmmmm... time to myself? What's that?
We're not much for sports, in general, but the Super Bowl is our annual game we actually watch. I'm not doing too bad - I've known for over a week who is playing, even!
We are invited to a SB party at the home of a family in my playgroup. I don't know the mama all that well, but I like her a lot, so it's a nice opportunity to get to know her a little better.
Plus, the kids will all run around like crazies and then sleep well for the night.
Mia is having LOTS and LOTS of "i do it" and "self... SELF" insistence over here, too. It's frustrating sometimes because she tries so hard to do something over and over and gets super pissed if I try to help, but if she can't manage it on her own, she just falls apart. So sweet and so heartbreaking, all at once. I try to keep prespective and remember that frustration is a normal part of development and I have to let her go through that. But it's so hard to see her getting so upset, knowing I could just do it and it would be done in a half a second.
Okay... I have to run and empty the dishwasher so I can avoid the pile up of breakfast dishes... that turns in to the pile up of all dishes for the whole day, until I clean then up just in time to make dinner... and more dishes.
