Where do I begin? There has been so much transition going on in my life it can be hard to keep up with it all. One of the first areas that tends to fall through the cracks is this space. My mother said, “I haven’t seen any posts lately.” That’s when I knew that I had fallen way off.

I have to say, it has been next to impossible to do all that I set out to do. Since being home from work, I have made some “in the meantime” plans. I am spending more time with my kids.  They will both be coming home from daycare after this month. There’s no need to keep spending money for them to be somewhere else all day. In the meantime, they’ll be with me. My son will start a new preschool and my daughter will be with me full time. Have I lost my mind? I don’t think so.

I have been touring schools like a crazy woman to find the one that I feel is just right for my baby boy. I haven’t done tours of schools since we were on the search for their day care. I forgot how much junk is out there. Some people really shouldn’t work with children.

I think we’re close to making a decision about his next step. My worry is his transition. He’s been at his current school since he was 6 months old. Feel free to pray for me on this one. While I have been at home, child-free, I have taken the time to clean the whole house in a way I just didn’t have the time to do while I was working full-time. I’m also taking the time to organize. I’m getting the kids area set up differently, since they’ll be spending more time at home and I’m getting my office set up to work from home.  There may be a before and after post there. The before is a hot mess, so the after should be ah-mazing.

My daughter has decided that she doesn’t sleep through the night anymore. The only time I get to blog/think is at night. So, yeah. You can feel free to pray on that too. That little girl needs to rekindle her love for sleeping through the night. I think she forgot how good that feels and I need her to remember. Soon.

Did this post just become a prayer request? Maybe.

I’m guessing in the next week or so, I’ll get my lift together and have something for your reading pleasure. I know it will be adjusting all over again once they are home from daycare. The smell of Murphy’s Oil Soap and dinners on the table before six o’clock that my husband has gotten used to, will probably come to a screeching halt for a little while. I’m confident we’ll find our rhythm for our “in the meantime” mode. This is the time when Mommy gets to figure our the next steps of my life. I’m taking my time, I want to make sure that the next steps are the best steps.

What’s up with you?

  1. I’m definitely about saving money. Why continue to pay for day care when mommy care just became an options. I’m sure you guys will have blast going playdates or just hanging out around the house. Hope you guys find the perfect fit in preschools for your son. It’s so critical that kids have the right environment and teachers when it comes to education.

  2. ahhh, murphy’s oil soap. My house smelled like that last night….
    Anyhoo! Save that money! Why pay for daycare if it isn’t necesarry?
    And you are in my prayers about a school for your little man. I want so bad to stop spending this car note on Pookah’s daycare but there is NOTHING out there near us that is free! Sigh.
    And little mama will find her way back to sleep soon. Pookah did the same thing.

  3. While measuring your mornings, try tracking your whole week. The reason? The solution to morning dilemmas often lies at other times of the day. You may be too tired because you’re staying up late. But if you look at how you’re spending your nights, you’ll notice that you’re not doing anything urgent. The Daily Show can be recorded and watched earlier–possibly while you’re on the treadmill at 6:30 a.m.

  4. Saving money is the main reason we opted to not do any type of Mommy n Me program or Daycare Preschool program. I feel like they’re glorified babysitters that throw in activities every now and then. I’ll pray for better sleeping for you and the little one!
