Hmm..typing with one hand while nursing with the football hold. I feel like a real multitasker. day 2: The good thing about a bad start is that there's nowhere to go but up. It went much better than yesterday. It's the end of the day and the only one crying is georgia (briefly and to Billy) about wanting to eat cereal. Here's what helped: prayer- both mine and other people's, getting mentally prepared and taking a shower in the morning before kids woke up, prayer, a great visit from Liza that helped the kids feel paid attention to, the promise of more Liza time tomorrow, knowing ahead of time that Teresa would not stay asleep after being put down for a nap for more than 10 minutes (suddenly this happened! she was such a good napper for me before yesterday), prayer, the relative success, compared to yesterday, of the food I made for lunch (apparently homemade foccacia beats shake-n-bake chicken in the 2-5 age group), and finally the sun, whose absense was felt keenly yesterday, and who warmed and cheered our afternoon today.
Two down, three more to go before the weekend breather.Posted by Bahiyyih at March 8, 2005 05:26 PM
