I had a couple of moments where I had to walk out of the room and pull myself together. I found myself grinding my teeth, yelling at my kids and loosing my patience. I’m not my best person going on 4 hours of sleep while franticly juggling to keep all the balls in the air.
Alex reached new heights climbing, but then had a fall resulting in (once again) a black eye. He is driving me nuts with his climbing, dragging chairs through the house and getting into mischief. During the week he got sick, all over me, twice. Sheets, clothes, the smelly washing pile multiplied before your eyes. He’s through it, the washing on the line and he back to climbing and driving me nuts.
Also awake during the night is David, battling the same nasty cough, a high fever and a sore throat and getting hardly any sleep, just miserable.
Coming home with a report card that gave me a beaming smile. Getting very good grades is one thing, but getting a perfect 1 for effort in every field, and all 1’s for Personal & Social Development, Work & Study Habits, that is fantastic. He is thriving.
I hope to be me again next week.
