What day is it??

This has been one. more. week. And it's only Wednesday!

Monday, Maggie had a "field trip" to a bouncing place. She had a blast! My mom kept Baby Ellie so that I could stay with Maggs the whole time. Our little Doodle doesn't always like to bounce, so I wanted to make sure that she wanted to be there. She didn't want to leave! She had a great time!!The Muffin likes her pants pulled up really far and they kept sliding down while she was bouncing!!

I was having some issues with a pinched nerve (Big Daddy diagnosed me a while back- not because he's a dror anything) and was either in pain or very uncomfortable for most of the day. We were so busy after our field trip. Maggie and I went to the grocery store and picked up Ellie, had lunch, skipped nap and then came home in time to do a few chores, have dinner and go to another grocery store in preparation for my dad's birthday celebration.

Yesterday, we went to the not-so supercenter, played outside and prepped for the party. After everyone left around 8:00, I put Ellie to bed, washed dishes, put Maggie to bed, made pancakes so that they'd be ready this morning, folded those three loads of laundry that I'd been ignoring, took a shower and went to bed. I was asleep fr maybe thirty minutes when Ellie started waking up. Her mouth was the obvious resaon, but Ora.jel didn't do the trick. She was up several times during the night.No matter what, Maggie always sneaks in a silly face!
Ellie loves the car that used to be Maggie's and that was Audrey's before that!

I woke up today with a full blown cold and a headache from the restless night. Maggie had another "field trip" to paint pottery. My mom kept Ellie again and I watched Maggie paint an egg and then we were out of there. I'll just leave the rest of that story out because I don't want to relive it.
Someone pays lots of attention to details!

Anyway...I feel like I need a vacation, but there's not one in sight!!

Big Daddy has an employment-related trip this weekend, so I'll have some single parent time. Just what I need!! Maggie doesn't want her daddy to go away and I keep hearing "leaving on a jet plane" in my head. She has completely forgotten what it was like when his job was 25% travel and he was out of town at least one night a week. We contemplated making it a family trip, but the thought of being on an airplane with our two girls quickly put a stop to that and then we thought of driving, but that would have extended the trip because of the drive time. Big Daddy suggested that we leave the kids with my mom, but I just am not at the point where I can ask anyone to do that. We've never left Ellie and Maggie has forgotten the joy of having sleepovers at Nana & Pawpaw's. She immediately goes into the story of how she cried and missed me and her daddy and Ellie when we were at the hospital. I'm completely confident in my abilities as a mommy and I can handle being without Big Daddy...I just don't want to. There's something about knowing that he's on his way home from work while I'm trying to clean the kitchen after dinner or sitting on the couch or doing homework in the bonus room while I'm giving the girls a bath or putting them to bed is comforting.

I'm hoping for the rest of the week to be nice, quiet and pain and drama-free. I'll keep you updated!

The Cozy Coupe....thought about getting A one but that was before he got the JD bc he loved a neighbor's so much. Kids don't care whether they get hand-me down toys or not. They love them just the same.

Being a single mother is something I could do if I didn't have a choice but nothing I would ever want to do.
