Sleepovers, skating parties, birthday parties...oh my!

The little one went on his first ever sleepover last Saturday (9/18)! I can't believe we're at this point already; I really can't. I was a bit nervous but this is a good family and I trusted they would take care of him and they did. Of course now the friend wants to sleep over at our house....(I'm preparing myself mentally to have more than 1 kid in the house)

Friday was the first skating party of the school year and of course my little one wanted to be present. He's still not skating as well as I'd like but oh well, hopefully he'll get the hang of it soon.

Yesterday we went to a birthday party and had alot of fun! The kids are so funny when they all get together. It's like they relese all of this stored up energy that they can't let out at school...ummm...yeah. They were ALL over the place.

Sick and single parenting...

How do you do it? I'm not sick often, which is a good thing. Little one had a little virus at the beginning of the week and I think I've picked it up...yuck! While it didn't seem to affect him much, it's taking more of a toll on me. Today I'm really not feeling well. He was supposed to have his first sleepover tonight but I just can't. I don't think I can handle one 7yr old boy, let alone two!

It's bad enough to be sick but it's tough to be sick and still have to parent (especially with no in home help). The little one doesn't really understand "mommy doesn't feel well."

So to the others that are parenting alone...how do you handle being sick and still having to take care of the home/kid(s)?

Random Mom thoughts for Thursday

The little one is still doing well in school. He still doesn't really want to be there and I keep hoping that will change soon. I want him to love school and learning...maybe one day.

School is going well for me but I'm less than motivated. I need to kick my butt in gear so I continue to do well. Don't think I'll get A's by coasting along like I have been the last couple of weeks.

On another note, my mood has been horrible the last couple of days. I was in tears on the drive home from dropping my son off this morning. I know what part of my problem is...PMS! I just want to feel better...ugh

7 days down, many more to go


So the little one has been in school for 7 days now and is doing pretty well. He still fusses about going in the morning but is fine once we walk out the door. He always says what a good day he's had when I pick him up...YAY!

Open house was last night and it was pretty informative. His teacher seems to be great so far and the little one likes her (surprise), which is a plus.

I just want him to continue on a good note and I'm sure he'll do well.

On another note; school is going well for me also :)
