Single Parent

I have been a single parent all week. Dj has been in TX for training. The kids and I are looking forward to his return tomorrow night. They have had a pretty good week for the most part. On Wednesday, it took Brynn 33 minutes to get dressed. Yes. 33 minutes. She is the master of wasting time these days. B & B spent the latter part of the week fighting over the mini Magna Doodle G'ma Cindy and Papa Kevin sent to Brynn for Halloween. This weekend we'll be buying a 2nd one b/c seriously, any time Brynn leaves it down for a second, Baylen dives for it and then takes off and runs to go use it. Brynn screams and cries at the top of her lungs until it's returned. Yeah. Not cool. Bee actually shared it tonight, which shocked me. I am not one of those parents who thinks we need two of everything, but this particular toy...well, I think we'll need to give in and buy a second one.

Man I am TIRED! It's been a crazy week at school b/c of all the damn Halloween candy the kids are poppin' in their mouths left and right. By the time 5th period comes around, they are just bouncing off the walls. EEKS. The full moon on Thursday didn't help either. I was up every morning somewhere around 5:30-5:45 to get myself ready and then get the kids up. Some mornings, they were up by 6. We were out the door by 7 and I was actually early to work. By the time 10 p.m. rolls around, though, I'm beat. Volleyball is finally over and I will be able to get back into my exercise routine next week. I thought I could hack it this week, but that did not happen...too many things to keep up with the kids and the house. So next week, the workout resumes, pending this sore throat goes away.

You are super mom! I have been wondering how the week was going! Glad Dj will be home today!

Hopefully when DJ gets home you can have some alone time, if only for a moment to get your sanity back. :)

We have one of those travel Magna Doodle things and LOVE it in the car! Makes longer trips more bearable with H.
