Tuesday 8/30

Tuesday, August 30, 2011

Well, today was not what I had hoped. I was stuck at home trying to get some work done with my "sick" daughter. Daycare didn't want her back for 24 hours due to her puking yesterday morning. She was fine the rest of the day, until later I had to change 2 leaky, messy diapers. So decided she must have some tummy bug and she should stay home. The upside to this was that we walked to kindergarten this morning, ate breakfast together, and then walked home again. We also found some time to go to the park. I didn't get a "full day" in of actual work, but more than I thought I would. After dinner tonight, we went outside as a family to play soccer and enjoy a nice evening.

Day 7 of Stress Busting Challenge and W2D3 of 5K Your Way Walk/Jog Program

Thursday, August 25, 2011

Today was a great day!! Felt great. Took my kids to school and ate breakfast with them. Dropped them off where they needed to go. Went to work. Had a fun day at work chatting with a co-worker and having lunch with the client. Hubby made dinner and cleaned up afterward!!! XOXOXO on that one. Started packing the kids things and getting the youngest ready for bed. Went out for my walk/jog. Got back to help pack some more and listen to my son read a book before bed. I then emailed my son's teacher to say hi and let her know that I am willing to help out as needed and available. I will be getting to bed within an hour or two so that I get enough sleep tonight. Tomorrow's another fun day!

Day 6 of Stress Busting Challenge

Wednesday, August 24, 2011

What a great day! My son started kindergarten today. He was so excited to go. My husband and I were fortunate to be able to take him and do all the fun activities set up for the morning. We ate breakfast with him, lined up outside to wait for the bell, visited his classroom, and went to the flag raising ceremony. He then went on to class while the parents had coffee time with the principal. I left for work. My husband picked up my son after the 2.5 hours were over. He said that he had to go looking for our son because they thought the daycare was picking him up that day. So he was able to talk with the teacher for a bit. She was impressed with his reading skills, which I am not surprised. He is a pretty good reader already. We found out that he is in a combination class because there were only 10 kindergarteners. So his class also has 10 1st graders. This is great. He will get to learn a bit more advanced things that he is ready for, but will be able to work on his social skills at the lower level. He is looking forward to day 2.

I only stressed out a couple times this evening when the kids were being difficult on our after dinner walk. I equate my temper/anger with stress. So the goal is to reduce all of this. Overall, not too bad of a day. Working on it....making progress.

    What a wonderful day! Memorable forever. Thanks for sharing. Makes me think back on my daughter's kindergarten experiences. She was the Statue of Liberty in their graduation ceremony. Ha. And now, she works in Washington, D.C. I'm proud. Thanks again! Glad you're getting around your stress. Me too.
