I’ve had a week in which I’ve felt very….discombobulated. You know? I blame it on a lack of sleep.
All in all it was a good week though! Monday and Tuesday I rocked my cleaning/organizing time. Bram’s room is FINISHED! You would not believe the amount of broken and useless toys we pitched, oh my!
But we still had a problem. The toys he loves, and really wanted to keep, are bulky. He is a HUGE fan of the Imaginext line, as well as Power Rangers with interchangeable pieces, and Transformers. It’s not that he has a ton of stuff anymore, it’s just that what he does have takes up room.
I was so proud of my Ah-Ha moment when I remembered we still had a trundle base in the junk room. We put all the really large toys in his toy box. Then, all the items with multiple pieces, or things that would easily get buried in the toy box, went into storage containers. The containers are now stashed neatly (and out of sight!) under the bed….but they’re easy to access with the trundle. Score!
Once Bram’s room was finished I completed “the nook”. We have a nice landing at the top of our stairs, and I converted it into a little play area for Amelie, now that she’s beginning to amass her own arsenal of toys. She loves it!
Then, on Wednesday, it occurred to me that maybe, just maybe, Amelie’s issues had to do with the mass quantities of coffee I’d been drinking. Ya think? She still nurses, so of course the caffeine was going through to her. I cut the coffee and the rest of the week she was back to sleeping like, well, a baby. Poor girl.
And, drumroll please, on Wednesday my homeschool evaluator signed off on our 2013/2014 school year. We are officially finished!! Having this off my mind, got me to finally thinking that I might (perhaps, maybe, just an inkling of a thought) want to start planning the 2014/2015 year. But not quite yet.
Thursday was spent taking PawPaw to a doctor’s appointment, and running around for party decorations. I have a few more things to pull together…but I think we’re good to go. Whew!
Before and after birthday haircut!
Today has been our regular cleaning day and party prep. And by party prep I mean baking a cake, and 2 pumpkin pies because that’s what the birthday boy wants! And what the birthday boy wants…
Tomorrow will be the party – and the birthday boy could not be any more excited. He’s at such a great age. I love how he approaches everything with joy and excitement! I pray that becomes an ingrained part of who he is.
