That torturous time of year when you have to wake up your sleeping baby that just went down to get your older children dressed and to school. Not looking forward to this. On the plus side though the gym is on my way home if I go that way so I have no excuse to not stop and workout a little, as long as she cooperates in their daycare.
I have mixed feelings about school. My oldest will be in K this year, and it's full day every day just like last year (because in Canada we have JK in the public school system, so they start a year earlier). Anyway, she brought home EVERY virus under the sun last year, and sometimes twice. My two girls were constantly sick. Thankfully I only caught a couple of the things they had.
I'm glad school is back in a couple of weeks because Lexy will be out doing something, and it's WAY quieter here when it's just Julianna, Lilah and I. I am DREADING school though because of the sickness that will come with it. Waking Lilah up to take Lexy to school, or to go down to meet the bus when she comes home, is def NOT appealing.
I agree I'm all for the kids being back in school, I just hate having to wake up Avery to drop DSD off and pick her up. Her pick up is right when Avery is taking her afternoon nap so she screams the whole time. Fun times.
Yeah, I have mixed feelings. My son will be going to preschool for a half day 3 days a week starting in September. It will be so good for him. But I don't like the idea of having to wake my DD to go get him. Of course, her nap time may change this fall, so we'll see. Luckily my hubby will work from home on preschool days, so he can do drop off and I'll do pick up.
I remember that suckage with Liam when I had the little girl I nannied for. I always had to wake him up to go get her. And it was never pretty. I am a little grateful that we aren't doing the school thing this year. Prolly next year though.
My daughter starts grade 1 in a couple of weeks. I'm dreading it. I don't want to get up at 6 or drag the boys to the bus stop. Plus I will miss the extra help, she is amazing at entertaining the baby so I can get something done and she gives my 3 year old someone to play with. Plus I miss her like crazy when she's gone and I tend to worry about her.
