We have exactly 3.5 more days of school left and I am having all kinds of mixed emotions about it. First of all, HOW did that even happen? I have been avoiding the reality that this baby is due shortly after school gets out. I am a VERY impatient person so I just couldn’t even let me mind go there with this pregnancy. Winter was long (it even snowed today: May 18th) and so if I was counting down the days to my due date I would have been so discontent. So all that to say that the reality of my girls being home all day everyday and the baby coming in 3 short weeks is really setting in. I’m so excited for the newborn stage and the magic that it brings into the home. I know he will be amazing for us all. I also know that babies are hard and I have a 2 year old. But I’m going to go with the flow, and hope for the best everyday. Thankfully every day is a new day. Sleepless nights are not my best friend and I can get very irritated very quickly. But I feel like the 4th time around should be a little less of a surprise at least.
Before the school year ends we have a field trip to the Bismarck Zoo, need to get teacher gifts, gymnastics awards night and a couple other things to do. It’s going to be a fun week ahead of us. And then baseball starts! I also decided to put both my girls in summer school because here in Killdeer they make it super fun for the kids and it’s only a couple weeks for a few hours a day. That should help me transition to having them home all day for the next couple of months.
Do your kids love being home? I have one who gets bored soooo easily and won’t stop begging for a playdate or something exciting to do. The other is really good at finding something she likes to play with and keeping herself entertained. Good luck to all the moms out there! We can do this! Now let’s just hope it doesn’t snow anymore so we can go to the park every damn day!
