Well, not really.....I'm not sure I am even capable of profound reasoning anymore, though maybe I never was.......hmmmmmm
I did learn something this week that sadly most people already know how to do - texting. My Dad had to teach me. Maybe someday I'll learn how to use the tv remote.
I finally got Isabella and Anastasia's school situation figured out. They are going to a hybrid type of school for two days a week. Tuesday was their first day.
The other days I will homeschool them. I kind of missed them. It is really weird for me not to have them home on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but it will give me more time with little Catherine, Francesca and Victoria. Though I seemed to have lost my ability to be as creative as I remember being with Elliot. He was an only child for 8 1/2 years and I remember playing with him for hours. Back then, I couldn't even imagine how I could find the time to have another child. Now, I hate to say it, but I am the tiniest bit bored with stacking blocks and making playdough snakes.
I taught Catherine how to use scissors and she made Anastasia a bookmark. Catherine was really, really good with the scissors, which kind of scares me.
I am really proud of Anastasia. She is on her 7th book of a series called "Charlie Bone." I think the books are for older kids, but she is really persevering with it.
Carol came by today. She should know better than to ever wear good clothes over to my house.
The kids think she is a jungle gym.
I really wish I could be more creative and inspiring like some other blogs I read, but, most days I am lucky to be in an up-right position. As my mom said today, as if she suddenly had an epiphany, "You really have a lot of kids."
You know how you can think that you know that something is going to be hard, but then, it turns out that it's really much harder than you could have imagined? That's me, not imagining anymore. But, like someone said to me the other day, "you wanted this", which is certainly true, though I wonder when I am going to get it all together?
One idea I have considered to save time, is that all the toys I find on the floor everyday should be stapled high up on the wall.
Also, maybe I'll get a megaphone.
Anyone have any other ideas?
