This week our Oldest daughter returned to work. That means back to work for us—now instead of 2 children during the day we have 3. We’re working on a new routine. I say “We” because The Honey is a big help around here—with everything that gets done during the day, including taking care of the grand kids. He LIKES kids. For the most part, yesterday and today have gone pretty smoothly. The baby still sleeps a lot.
Vincy, on the other hand, LIKES routine. In fact, if we stray from it too far – he has a melt down. So with him, our last two days have been as normal as possible. The only change being the placement of his day bed (pack N’play) He is used to being in the front room with us. He is used to me rocking him to sleep. At home, Momma or Daddy put him in his bed and he talks and plays until he falls asleep. He rarely, ever cries himself to sleep. Now, after being home with momma for 6 weeks; he comes here and his bed is in the guest room After today I think he will be fine. When he wakes—he stands and says “Oma” and jabbers or he’ll say “Hunna” it’s the cutest thing! He’s adapting well.
For his baby brother—it’s eat, change the seat cover and sleep. He likes to open his peepers and have a look around, when he feels well. His tummy gives him problems. We’re still making adjustments to his eating, burping and bottling habits. I think we’ve almost got this one figured out… then he gets another issue. He’s only 6 weeks old—so it’s touch and go, still.
Well, I home school her. So—while Vincy sleeps. We work her phonics and math in pretty quickly. The reading and drawing and table work she can do at other times… but the instructional part has to be done as soon as the boys are BOTH ASLEEP!
Thank goodness—she is eager!
It helps for her to know that after school—she gets to pick an activity. Today, it was make cookies.
She wanted to make ‘Boiled-Cookies’. We call them Boiled Cookies but if you GOOGLE OR PINTEREST—type in NO-BAKE COOKIES.
It will pop up everywhere! This is the recipe we use--
The kiddos love them and so do the adults… be careful, YOU CAN’T. EAT. JUST. ONE! They’re so addictive… ;)
Anyway-- Our other daughter lives next door. In the morning she comes and brings Easton and her New little one
and we have ourselves a good ol’ time playing pass the baby! While Bree and Easton get a little play time and I load up on coffee!
That’s how it’s going so far, with the kids, the rain, the snowy cold weather and the house (to sell or not to sell) I haven’t gotten one seed planted. I’ve not looked at getting new chickens, we still have the pup litter—and will probably have to visit the humane society (no kill) as we’ve not found a home for ONE DOG YET!
That makes me sad. It’s a no kill shelter—but I just don’t like dealing with them if we can keep from it. You know what I mean… it would be so nice if we could find some families close by that are looking for pups!
I hope your week is turning out nicely—we’ve warmed up and had a couple of pretty nice days. Still too wet to mow—but I’m hoping this time next week? Though looking at the weather they’re predicting more rain. That’s ok! We need it.
Even with all this—we are so blessed. I hope you are blessed today too. No matter your circumstance—find a bright spot in your day, and Praise Him from Whom ALL BLESSINGS FLOW!
‘Til next time~
