Do the phases ever stop or do they just change?

I have to say that 6 has been a challenge for me. I guess my baby is growing up and I still want to treat him like a baby :(

His will seems to be stronger than ever and sometimes I honestly don't know how to deal with it. I've come to realize recently that I need to go through each stage with him and adjust my parenting accordingly....eek!

Although I don't plan to remarry, sometimes I think it would be helpful to have that male figure around to balance things out. Oh well....

One day at a time, one day at a time :)

So far, so good

The first week of summer day camp went pretty well for the little one. He cried the first day but seemed ok when I picked him up. He talked about a boy he played with all day, so maybe he made a friend....YAY! He did miss 2 days because he just wanted to stay home.

I had thought about signing him up this week but decided against it so I was VERY surprised when he asked to go back this week...huh??! They made these rockets that they get to blast off and he wants to blast his. We'll see how this week goes...

Next week I'm going to see if I can get in a playdate or two instead of sending him to day camp.

Hope everyone is enjoying the summer so far!

Can you say hot....

DS and I have been hanging out mostly indoors today. There is a heat advisory issued for today, which means feels like temps above 105 for 3 hrs or more!! Umm...ridiculous.

I've been in FL my whole life so I should be used to it but I have to say the older I get the more the summers bother me.

Anyway, enough whining from me...LOL!

VBS (bible school) went well this week. DS really enjoyed it! Glad about that

Happy Monday!

Not much going on here. DS is at vacation bible school. He woke up crying this morning saying he didn't want to go, of course (I didn't expect anything else from him...). I held him and encouraged him and told him how I also get scared when I have to do something new.

Anyway, he was fine when I left him in the class. He didn't even look back; just waved and said "bye Mommy." Hopefully he has a good day and learns something new.

I'm sitting here waiting for the phone to ring for a phone interview. My job hunt has been going on for 8 months now. Although I have enjoyed what will probably be my one and only chance to be a SAHM, it's time for a job to show up pretty soon.

I know it'll be hard at first for me and ds when I go back to work but I guess I have to. No hubby here to support us.

Ok, phone is ringing, gotta go!!

7 days and counting..

The little one has been out of school for a week now and I have to say so far, so good!

He'll be in VBS next week and then 2 weeks of swim lessons and then.....

I'm still looking for work, so who knows; I might be back at work before the summer ends. Still not sure how I feel about that.

I think we'll check out the library today and see what's going on there.

Finally got the yard cut this morning, YAY! Now we can go out back and play without needing to wear boots...LOL!

Schools out!

Well, the last day of school was Tuesday. I officially have a 1st grader! This school year flew by and I can't believe it's over already :(. DS did well on his report card and I'm very proud of him.


We just relaxed and hung out yesterday. Now we'll find some fun things to do for the summer (unless I go back to work of course).

Hope everyone else has a fun summer!
