Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday… The days fly by faster than the tumultuous winds of a hurricane. I am beginning to lose all hope of slowing time down.
So instead I focus on maintaining my memories. This past week is filled with memories of transitioning back to school and work..
Over the weekend we enjoyed our last couple days
of “nothing to do” but hang around the house…
(which is quickly becoming a favorite pastime of mine.)
However, if I have to watch
One. More. Cars. Movie
(“Cars” pronounced: ‘Arrs in toddler-ese)
I think I might just change my name to Sally Shiftwell.
it is getting ridiculous.
We were all (except the toddler) ready to move forward with reality
and leave Disney’s Cars (1 & 2) behind as just a
OK. That needed to be said. Moving on to Monday…
To help better balance my family and work life,
I’ve dropped down to only teaching one college class this semester.
Mondays will no longer be spent teaching.
This Monday however, I still worked all day doing lesson plans…
but I gladly returned to quasi-vacation mode in the evening,
reading books with the kids and playing (what else!) cars.
Do we really need to see more music class photos,
or speech photos, or photos of us eating on-the-go in the car?
Who wants pictures of me on a phone conference all afternoon?
Followed by homework, and more Kindermusik, and another evening meeting?
Not I. Really!
So (again) let’s move on…
Because Wednesday, well Wednesday
(So much better than Tuesday.)
No Work. And ALL Play.
(Playing with the kids that is.)
And the day was filled with lovely messes.
And the messes were eventually followed by:
and one of my all time favorite posts
for the Mothers Central Blog.
I often get asked:
WHY I love my Mothers’ Center group,
WHY Mothers Center is so important to me and
IF I think the money I pay towards our dues is worth it.
YES! I’ve no doubt. And this is why…
(I hope you’ll read the post. This organization has played such a vital roll in my life since becoming a mother.)
Leave a Comment: Just curious – how long do you think it takes for a toddler obsession (a.k.a. Cars, a.k.a. ‘Arrs) to fade?
