Phew. G loves school. Not that he didn't enjoy his "Mom's Morning Out" last year, but this year is more grown-up and yes, while it is still preschool, it feels like a big jump.
But he came out of class this AM with a huge smile on his face and uttered the words of this blog post's title. Then, as I was leaving, Miss Jill told me, "G gave me and Miss Jennie a big hug today!" Go G! Way to get in with the ladies...
With our new schedule in full swing, this has been my morning thus far:
Get fed, dressed, cleaned, etc.
Drive G to school
Go to music class with R
Go home, eat lunch with R, make lunch for G so he can eat in the car
Drive R to school
Pick up G from school
Give G his lunch in car so he can eat and be ready for nap by the time we get home
Put G down for nap
Do a little blogging, etc.
And soon our day will continue:
Wake up G
Pick up R from school
Go to Jeni's to get ceremonial "First Day of School" ice cream
Go to the grocery
Come home, play
And sometimes I think about having a third child? How on earth would that work? :)
Regardless, I am learning to love (even more) the idea of planning ahead. Without thinking ahead, I am sure I would be bald from pulling out all of my hair by week's end, since we haven't even thrown in MOPS, soccer practice, tumbling, and more...
So to plan ahead, here are our meals for the week:
Shrimp and Parmesan Grits*, Antipasto, Watermelon
Corn Chowder*, Spinach Salad, Pumpkin Bread
Grilled Chicken Sausages, Braised Red Cabbage, German Potato Salad
*Recipe in the virtual cookbook (yes, I used to direct link the recipes, but did you see how busy my day is today?)
And for all of you out there with 3+ kids, how in the world do you juggle it all?
