I have not blogged in over a week, in fact almost two weeks, By the time I get around to being able to sit down and gather a thought, all I want to do is go to bed. Things in daycare are getting confusing now. I have Abby in pre-school on Mon./Wed., Cooper on Tues./Thurs, William gets here on Mon. after preschool on a school bus, Tavish is now only 2 days a week, but we are not sure if it is Mon./Thurs. or Tues./Thurs.Trying to remember who goes where when and who is coming back at what time is very new to me. They did all arrive and leave at pretty much the same time up til now.It adds a new level of hectic to my day, I am sure it will get better, once I remember who is going where. I am not complaining, I wouldn't change a thing, and I know it will only become more crazy when the kids head off to "real" school and I am managing all of this, plus school work, activities, volunteering at school, more play dates and whatever else comes at me. Being an at home mom is one thing, but adding other peoples kids and trying to keep the house as clean as a business(because technically it is) just makes it a little harder to keep up on. If it were just my kiddos, I could dress them and feed them when I got to it and if the dished sat in the sink or the toys weren't picked up the only one who would care is me. As I said, not complaining, but I get distracted and either forget to blog, or I am wanting to sleep, over blogging.
Tomorrow Michele and I are taking the girls, along with Papa Bear& maybe Grandmom, Tavish and Aunt Jan to highlands Ranch Cowboy Days. It should be fun, with a petting zoo, and ponies and Native American dancers. It is only suppose to be in the low to mid 70's tomorrow, which for me is ideal outdoor activity weather.
I am sooooo excited the days seem to be cooling off a little earlier this year. you all know me, I have already put out a few fall decorations, a couple cute little pumpkins and scarecrows. No Halloween yet, I am not that over zealous.
Brianna, is really feeling her two's these days, she is so funny though, because she is just to sweet to push it to far, she hates being in trouble and always ends up apologizing to me and kissing and hugging like crazy.
I decided the other day, that Brianna is starting to get old enough to meet her baby brother who was placed with a different family last October. If you remember, I tried to get him, but his birth mom fled 5 hours out of our county, so they had to place him there. Well, I contacted family services there a couple of days ago, and guess what. Birth mom got the baby back about a month ago. That means poor Brianna is unlikely to know him, at least until she is an adult, unless he is removed again and we are notified. Ordway is such a small town and Crowley is such a small county, that they only have 2 social workers and one judge. I do not know if they were more lenient with birth mom or if she did a complete 180 for the baby, but she never did anything when it was Brianna. I am surprised she could make such a turn around. I hope she really has, for the baby's sake, and for hers also I suppose. I know Brianna will someday ask about her, and probably want to go find her, I would prefer it if she has gotten her life together and it can be a positive experience for Brianna, as opposed to a disappointing one. I was just really hoping for the kids to have that connection of knowing eachother, it would have been so good for Brianna, but that is part of why I waited, i wanted to be sure before I mentioned him to her. Now I will wait until she is old enough. I a going to try and see if I can get a picture or two for Brianna of the baby though.
Well it is now almost 12:30 am and I need to get up reasonably early for tis thing tomorrow. We will take pics and I will post about our day later.
