unmatching jammies and Chloe's tiny one's. I swear they have decent ones.
each other. I don't have a sister and never shared a room, so I just love that they have each other. Ry takes such great care of Chloe. She said that Chloe wanted to sleep with her. Riley also tucks Chloe in at nap time and sings songs to her.
This week wasn't too exciting. We're still getting used to the new school schedule...
Monday: It was nice to have a day off. We had a swim party at Kim and Kathy's. Darren went into work at 6pm. (overtime) We discovered the day before the Expedition's battery was toast. It was covered under warranty, but the dealership wasn't open till Tuesday. So every time we went somewhere , we had to jump it.
Tuesday: Crazy morning. Darren had 45 min. of sleep. Had to jump the truck, take the kids to school and get the truck to the dealership. Ry fussed a little at school drop off. I had an appt. with an orthopaedic for my knee at 8 am on the other side of town. I got done just in time to get Ry and swing by to get Darren and Chloe at car lot, truck still not done. Just as we get home with lunch they call and say it's ready. Poor Darren didn't get to bed till almost 2pm. Later that night he and I went to a jewelry training for me. He is such a good sport to go and on such little sleep.
Wednesday: Darren took kids to school again. Ry threw a mini tantrum at school drop off. I had another jewelry meeting. This time it was lunch at Cheesecake and without kids and husbands. It was nice. Went to the gym that evening.
Thursday: Ry throws a huge fit at drop off this morning. I had to pry her off the fence and push her in. All while holding Cole and making sure Chloe doesn't run off. Oh yeah, with sweat dripping down my face and back. I worry most of the day about this. She was never like this last year. I talk with her teacher, she makes it sound like no big deal, and tells Ry she can bring her blankie to class. Oh, no, don't think so. Went to gym when Luke got home from school. Had dinner picnic style in the living room. Darren ran to Walmart to do a little grocery shopping for me and to get Ry a little blankie to keep in her backpack.
Friday: Morning drop off goes a little better with the new blankie. She still was trying to think of reasons to whine. This child really makes me work! Laid low for a couple of hours, Chloe and I looked at Disneyland online. We are ready for a trip. Went to the gym and met Darren there after work. We had a date at the smoothie bar. Met Darren's parents at our house for dinner and to check out their new car.
Saturday: Went to the gym this morning. Class got started late. One of the ladies from the daycare had to get me to take Chloe out. She wasn't being any worse than usual. This lady drives me crazy. I feel like she is always tattling on my kids for just normal things. I doubt she has any kids of her own. (I know Chloe is a tough child, don't think I'm being a crazy mom!) I was gonna wash the car, but think I'll put it off for now. Chloe and Cole are both napping, I think I may have a little rest.
I just realized I never mention Luke all week. He's such an easy kid. He likes school and is doing well.
