Did you stay home with the kids? Go to school? Go to work? Give us the details on a day in your life
Today I was scheduled to nanny in the morning. So I had to wake Eleanor early and get out the door. She loves going there, though, so as soon I told her where we were going she ran to the door and tried to get her coat on Eleanor loves the boys I watch, so it was fun to see them and let them play together. We had a good morning with playing pirates, playing Twister, and having a dance party. We also spent a lot of time eating meals and snacks.. for some reason whenever Eleanor and their toddler boy are together, they eat a ton!
Then I met DH for a quick lunch in the car while Eleanor napped. Eleanor and I took a short trip to the zoo afterward. She liked the bears, rhinos, elephants, and lions. She kept calling the elephants "crazy guys" She also had fun pushing her stroller. And she is probably the only kid who searches the stroller for books during a trip to the zoo. Not a bookworm at all!
The we made the loooong drive home (singing Hickory Dickory Dock more times than I care to remember). We settled in and then Eleanor wanted to Skype with someone so we called my mom. Then DH got home, we had dinner, and now DH is putting Eleanor to bed.
On Mondays I take Charlie to preschool in the mornings, then Beau and I hang out until lunch time. My husband gets off work at noon, so I meet him at his work and hand Beau off. Then I go to work, and my husband picks up Charlie and watches the kids for the rest of the afternoon. It's a pretty nice balance.
How cool that you are able to bring Eleanor to nanny with you! That's a great way to make some extra income but also get to spend time with her!
I worked my usual. Then picked up the babychild and went to the bank to pay a loan lol. Got home & dealt with a killer headache while my husband sold his beloved truck to some guy. Since the guy drove two hours to pay for it, he wanted to rent a tow and take it back with him, that was a mess. It took hubs from 2 in the afternoon until 8:30 last night to get everything finalized and the guy out on his way! BUT we sold the motorless truck & we will be getting a new one soon.
I am seeing this today, I will do both yesterday and today. I was at home yesterday. I spent the day cleaning house, playing with marybeth, and printing applications for a teaching job. My dad came and put front brakes on my car and MaryBeth got to see pawpaw.
Today I am driving my dad to the doctor's office. Long day lot of driving for a 3 min procedure and 15 mins of waiting!
Yesterday I layed in bed moaning until DH left for work at 7am. I tried to look after Avery and gave her a bath and got her dressed. She had woken up so early that she wanted to nap by 8:30 so we both napped for 2 hours together.
Then we got up and did a little bit more lounging and I dealt with a bookkeeping client. Then we made lunch, and left for town.
We got a few grocieries, picked up a toddler chair and table I bought off a facebook group and went to Avery's 18 month well baby visit.
Came home, tried to clean the house a bit, watched The Biggest Loser on my PVR. Made supper.
DH came home, ate supper, sat around a bit. He put Avery to bed and I took a bath and went to bed myself at 8pm.
Now I am sitting here feeling nauseous. Yahoo.
