What a Week, and it's not even Friday yet!!!

WHEW!!!! What a week I have had! I am EXHAUSTED! I have not adjusted to getting up at 5am to start my day. I haven't figured out how to fit some down time in for me once the kiddos are in bed, and get to bed at a decent time (before 11:30 preferably!). With all that I have been busy busy busy and had an emotional week. Monday wasn't too bad, but it was filled with getting ready for the first day of school. Tuesday was an emotional day with M's first day of school (see previous blog post for more info!). She did great going into school, but mommy didn't. I was soooo excited to pick her up from school and hear all about her first day. Unfortunately M had a rough first day at school and was in tears! She was upset because she missed me, she didn't like how loud it was in the cafeteria and they didn't give her enough time to finish her lunch:( She didn't want to go back to school she just wanted to stay home with me. We stayed positive with her and fortunately she went back to school the next day without much fuss- but she did let us know she wasn't happy about it! Wednesday was a better day for her-YAH!!! So this morning I didn't hear anything about not wanting to go to school etc... However this afternoon when I picked her up we had more tears because I was a bad mommy and forgot to put dessert in her lunch box:( I felt HORRIBLE!! But I also know she never gets to the dessert part of her lunch because she is a slow eater and ran out of time. I did make it up to her by taking her out after school today for a sweet treat:) She was also very upset because the teacher didn't call her name to pick something out of the treasure box (she had gotten something the past two days; it's for good behavior) and she didn't have any strikes:( I said what probably happened is M's name is last on the class list due to our last name and she probably forgot. OH MY HEART just hurts for M, she is really struggling with school, I just want to wrap my arms around her and keep her at home forever! BUT I know that would not be good for her.
Yesterday was my son's 4th birthday! But before we get to his birthday, he had a peanut challenge at the allergist yesterday morning and PASSED- YAH!!!!!! So H can now have peanuts:) So for H's birthday lunch we went to Ch.ik Fi.l a where he could eat chicken nuggets and play on the playground for the first time:) We also went out to dinner to celebrate H's birthday, he got to choose where we went and of course we went to Yan.g Noo.dle his FAVORITE place! Then we came back to the house and had cookie cake- his choice once again (something he has not been able to have/enjoy due to his allergies) and opened presents from us and my parents (his BIG family party is this weekend and his friends party will be in September. M and H have birthday's just a couple weeks apart so we are doing their friends party together).
I would say I am looking forward to Sunday to relax a little bit but that isn't going to happen because I have to take Hubby to the airport to fly out on a business trip- he will be gone 11 days:(  UGH! It is going to be a LONG 11 days for me.
Through all this craziness L is doing fabulous! She is my little chunky monkey:) She has her 2 month check up next week and I am anxious to see how much she weights! For the most part she is sleeping through the night (the other night we had a rough night she just wanted to be held, I think she was having gas issues), with her last feeding around 10 or 11pm and going to sleep afterwards and then waking either right when I get up at 5am or after my shower. So thankfully I am not having to feed her in the middle of the night with the little sleep I am getting.
I am hoping and praying that the end of my week and the weekend is better than my week has been. I am also asking for prayers while my hubby is gone for 11 days. Thank you:)

  1. I'm sorry you're having such an emotional week. I can relate to a lot of what you're going through. I have decided to 'praise' my way though these kind of days. I'll be praying for you as I lift up my own stressors to the Lord.
