Back To School.....

Moms everyone rejoice with the beginning of a new school year, but not this Mom. I don't like sending my kids to school. I want so desperately to homeschool them, but time and money just won't allow it. I'm hoping that Lex does well at his new school, and I hope Lo's teacher is prepared for the little whirlwind that is about to walk through her door. My ex and I are giving the public school system one more chance, if Lex still doesn't do well then I have a few more options I can look into. One will be costly, but I think we could swing it. I'll be working my ass off, but it will be worth it! The other option is that we homeschool him. We'll see! Fingers crossed he does well. :)

Sleep Training....

Not my kids, my kids go to bed by themselves with no help. I'm talking about my boyfriend's 4 year old daughter. He sleeps with them while they are here and that is a big no no in this house. She is not a baby anymore, she needs to learn to go to sleep on her own. Oh, and no thumb sucking here. Sorry, but as a former dental assistant, I cannot allow that in my home. She will learn, we will have countless sleepless nights, but she will learn. They always do.

Broken Mommy......

I fractured my ribs the other day. Landed right on the side of the tub on the metal part. Good times, people. Good times. Todd had to drive me to the ER yesterday morning. I would just like to take a moment to thank all the nurses out there who go above and beyond. I did not see one doctor yesterday, two nurses took care of me, and they were making rounds to each room! They are way under paid. Anyway, two x-rays and a couple of percocets later, I was ready to go home. I popped those bad boys like they were candy, took a 5 hour nap, got up, popped some more and then went back to bed. Woke up this morning feeling a lot better. Hopefully this will heal quickly.

The kids are all concerned, especially Lola. She's such a caring little girl. She has been helping me around the house, asking me if I feel ok, do I need to lay sweet. I'm taking my time and going really slow. Not something I am used to, but if I want to get better quick I need to learn to stop, breathe and relax. :)
