My Summer Off Just Went Out the Window

This morning I decided to ask about when the last day was for the girls I do daycare for since their mom is a teacher she usually stays home with them and brings them back in mid August. Well she told me today that she will be having them come in the summer on occasion. Great. Knowing her it'll be like everyday. I wasn't planning on this. I thought I'd be able to take the kids to the waterparks, zoo, and other things intown to do this summer without hauling around another preschooler and toddler. We'll hope it's not going to be that often. I told her that I enrolled the kids in the storytime program at the library on Wednesday afternoons so hopefully her needed schedule won't involve Wednesdays. I also wasn't planning on her knowing I'm pregnant till August when she came back with them. Hopefully I won't show enough for her to tell till later on. I'm afraid she's going to look for another provider when she finds out I'm due in January since this time it will take her finding a back up, last time in July she was out of school. I will also be watching Lexi the 6 yr old M-W from 9:30-5:30 but that's fine since she's 6 and alittle easier to care for!

T-ball last night was fun. I took Damien with me so we sat on a blanket and played while she practiced. Mrs. BetterthanU got her little girl on the team too. She showed up with her boys and I sat next to us. It's weird that our kids are all born months of each other. Her youngest boy is 2 months older than Damien so they were staring at each other. One of the first things she said was "did you see Nichole's glove?" I answered "yeah, it's pink. How cute!" Whatever. Does that make her daughter more special than the other girls because she has a pink mit? I think I'll stick to universal sports equipment that the boys can use in the future. lol She also blabbed about putting her 3 yr old in T-ball and how her yr old is walking all over now. Last week at the Girlscout Daisy meeting we were putting the kids in the car and she showed me that her sliding door on her minivan locks when pushed open as to where mine I can push it shut, a safety feature that my Windstar doesn't have. Grrrrrrrrrrrr.......

Dave's cousin Tori came over last night to pick up some clothes we had bought for her little girl at a yard sale the other day and brought her 7 week old girl Emma with her. It's so weird holding and seeing a baby that small again when your kids have grown up. I can't even remember what life was like with the kids at that age. I have it all on camcorder but I just can't remember them looking so frail and tiny, their expressions, the movements they made. It feels like it's been forever. I held Emma though and stroked her soft black hair looking at Dave and smiling. I sure hope this one's a girl.

Sorry you are not getting your summer off like you planned. I hope she does not bring them by too often!

I am glad you had a good time at T-ball! I can't wait until I can start putting Big Z in stuff like that! Sounds like your "friend" just keeps trying to show you that she thinks she is better than you and everyone else! A pink glove??? I didn't even know they made them! I guess if the baseball players can use pink bats on Mother's Day..........

And most of all, I am glad to hear that the holding the baby made you smile. You are so ready to be a mom again! Everything is going to work out wonderfully for you all. ****HUGS****I kinda wish I was going to get to have another one now......

That stinks that you might not get your summer off like you wanted. I hope she finds stuff to do with the kids so that you get more time off than you think you will.

T-ball sounds like fun, except for Mrs. BetterThanYou... she sounds like someone I'd like to smack!

You really need to tell her no! You need this summer to enjoy your kids and not get stressed out.
I am so glad you were able to snuggle a new baby - Gosh I'm starting to forget what that's like!
