Busiest of busies– yup, that’s been me.
Last week the poor kids bounced a sickness back & forth and all around.
This week, I’ve just been busy.
I mean, I haven’t been home most of the week. Poor Owen was still sick Monday & Tuesday.
I took a friend to an appointment and then drove her around to run a few errands on Monday & Tuesday.
Went with her Wednesday to fun another. And then the kids had ballet/guitar that night.
Thursday was basically spent up at Fin & Maddie’s school.
I had a meeting with Fin’s speech therapist (remember last year, he starting spelling words like HE was sounding them out so “gween” instead of “green”?!) Anyway, she told me he’s done! He does NOT need it anymore. She even said a few kids his age have issues with the “R” sound and he doesn’t even have an issue with that! Yay, Fin! While in there she asked his actual teacher how he was doing in class and she replied with, “Fin excels! He’s easily one of my top students if not the top!” HOORAY, FIN!! Proud mom moment right there! Then I got rushed out of there with a practice fire drill.
Had to be back up there to have Holiday lunch with Fin and that lasted absolutely forever, his lunch got pushed back a bit because the cafeteria was just so full of kids and their parents, the line took forever, the food was far from tasty, Maddie threw two different little fits, Owen was tired & grumpy but the look on Fin’s face when he saw us standing there waiting on him was priceless! He was so excited that we’d made it to eat with him!
And then Thursday night was a K-2nd grade concert at the school! It was super cute, super packed, super hot and I hardly saw Fin’s face but made sure that he DID see us because he swears we weren’t there last year (Even though we were and we walked him down to his class then found our seats, crazy kid!). He saw us! David tried to take pictures but they’re awful. Oh well, see what I mean though?! I could’ve basically stayed in the parking lot most of the day and just napped there.
And today I NEED to grocery shop. NEED TO SHOP!
I’m hoping for a super not busy weekend and kind of a lazy week next week. (It won’t be. I have tons of plans that I’m super excited about).
This week was far from bad, just long. I didn’t mind any of it, I was glad to help my friend out, glad to talk to the speech therapist, glad to eat with Fin, glad to see his concert, glad to take them to ballet.
Oh wait, ballet and guitar: I got to actually watch Maddie dance on the TV they have outside of the room! I just usually never get a seat in front of it and am so glad I did! It was like watching a whole different child. She opened up so much, she danced and sang and played with her little friends, it was a whole new Maddie and I am SO SO happy about that! She has a little mini recital this Saturday that I can’t wait to watch. And Fin got a token (to the claw machine) from his guitar teacher because he played WITH THE SONG!! You guys, that’s a HUGE deal!! He played what he’s been practicing WITH THE ACTUAL SONG! And he has it memorized! He doesn’t even have to look at the paper where the notes are written down on! YAY!
Okay, so yeah….. I think that’s it. Sums up my week. I’ve sufficiently rambled on and on now. You’re welcome for that. If you read this, good job because I’m worn out from typing it up! 😉
How has your week been? Got any super awesome weekend plans?
