Peanut butter or jelly?

11 Jan

We made it through the first week of the year. It was tough. Big A was back to Kindergarten and Little A started preschool! I am tired – I pack so much into the morning that I am exhausted before I even get to work!

6:30am – wake up, shower and get ready

7:15 am – wake up the boys

7:16 am – discover Little A’s diaper leaked and change the sheets

7:25 am – argue about what the A’s want for breakfast

7:30 am – make breakfast for the A’s – usually peanut butter toast for Big A and jelly toast for Little A – neither one of them likes them together!

7:45 am – help Big A get dressed, yell at Little A to hurry up and finish eating (slowest eater in the world, I swear)

7:50 am – clean Big A’s glasses, put finishing touches on myself, force the last bite of food down Little A

7:55 am – get Little A dressed and hair combed

8:00 am – ask them if they brushed their teeth. No, of course not. Make them brush their teeth

8:05 am – help them put their coats, boots, hats and gloves on and start the car

8:10 am – buckle them in the somewhat warm car while I clean off snow

8:15 am – still cleaning snow

8:20 am – see Big A onto the buss when it arrives

8:22 am – head to Little A’s preshcool

8: 35 am – drop off Little A and stay collected when he throws his big, teary eyes at me as I am leaving

8: 45 am – sit down at my desk at work and sigh

Whew! Somehow I work for a few hours and then go to Curves for a workout at lunch. Then work for a few more hours, pick up Little A and go home to relieve GG from watching Big A for the afternoon. GG is having a much easier time with just Big A and is making his afternoons educational as well.

So far, the preschool thinks Little A is wonderful (not afraid to tell them how he is feeling or what he wants or what he thinks) but is wonderfully behaved. I give them another week. They are even helping potty train the boy. They deserve front row seats in Heaven!

    Sometimes my kids will lie and tell me they’ve brushed their teeth and when they haven’t. They think I have magical powers when all I do is look to see if they’re toothbrushes are wet. Amateurs.

    I totally annihilated that last comment with typos. Now it’s going to bother me until you write another post and bury it.
    I’m waiting.;)

    If it wouldn’t snow so much the early workout would be more beneficial. Can’t wait to see if this week is better, the same or sad. Trying to keep Big A occupied is going to be a gigger hurdle. Little A has learned to roll with the punches, he has had a terrific teacher in his bro.

    Sam – I just can’t think of anything more to write. I am spent! You will have to live with your typos – lol!

    Graciouslady – Little A is doing great in school this week. No more sad! But from what you said today, Big A was a naughty boy!!
