- Little E slept in our room last night, she has croup. I was nervous to have her so far away and being sick without a monitor on. I wanted to be there if she had a coughing fit, cried after she coughed or woke up and needed comforting. I thought she'd be up around 4 am when her last round of ibprophen wore off but she didn't wake up until I had to move the pack-n-play so I could get some socks.
- E wanted to eat this morning! Hooray. Who cares if she just ate Jello and a few bites of a banana. (I'm pretty sure all she ate today was: the Jello, banana, a cookie, a smoothie pouch, some grapes, a couple of OtterPops, and two mini packages of M&Ms.)
- How great our babysitter, Meg, is. She offered to watch the kids today even though E is sick. The kids LOVE her.
- A text from Meg today that reads, "S decided he wants to go on the potty today so he has a pair of pull-ups on and runs to the bathroom every 10 minutes. Ha!" When I got home and went to the bathroom he came in and he wanted his diaper and pants off so he could sit on the potty. Silly Boy!
- After texting Meg back and forth I got nervous about how E was acting and not eating or drinking, when I went down to talk to the school nurse the first thing my principal asked was if I needed to leave. This was after my teaching partner asked me if I needed to do something and he'd watch the kids. It is great to have such a supportive and understanding workplace.
- Pride for my 5th graders. They have been really working hard on a region project where they are working in groups of 3 or 4 to make an iMovie. They have done an AMAZING job. I had my doubts but they proved me wrong. They worked great in groups and were able to make great videos. We might need to work on the content but they did a good job. So proud of them!
- Being able to go out with friends for a drink (of Diet Coke tonight) and good conversation. I sure miss my old co-workers.
- A smiley boy opening the door to the garage door saying, "Mama!" What a great greeting.
- Snuggles with my sick little girl. I love that she wanted to be held when I got home. I also love that S was able to get his socks and find one shoe and bring them to me while I held his sister. It is amazing how much they understand these days.
- That the first thing S said when he got home from the football game with his dad was his sister's name. I love that he thinks about his sister when she isn't around.
