Last week was a hard week here. Nothing major. Just a my kids are totally crazy and won't listen to anything I say kind of crazy. As in, I asked Miss A to help Little J get a dress to wear while I packed lunch for our picnic, and instead both girls took everything out of the closet and found window coverings to use as skis. And that was Monday. By Wednesday I had taken away almost all of the toys after the girls dumped toys all over the floor and Little J's bed, then refused to clean any of them up.
A long week for my first week off work. The first week in my 14 months off and it was not what I had hoped for. I had to cancel fun plans because the girls were not following our rules. I started feeling really anxious about adding a baby to the mix in less than two months. I know that our schedules have been thrown off, and I'm tired so my patience was down, but it was a hard week.
Friday was better. Not perfect, but better. The weekend was better still. I remembered that the first week of summer break was rough last year too (Little J was climbing EVERYTHING) but the summer got better from there. We're all starting to get on a summer schedule, so I'm hopeful that our summer will still be great. And even during the crazy week, they still had some moments of super sweetness and cuteness.
