Oh well, today I did flashcards with the kids (numbers 1-10), I wrote the number on the front and the word on the back, and showed them both sides. KJ is too small to really understand but he was getting a kick out of it and Jay was naming almost every single one right! Yay! Sense I’m teaching them the numbers, I’m going to do a “number of the day” for numbers 1-10. Today was number 1, so I drew a 1 and wrote the word on a piece of paper, and let Jay
scribble color on it, while we talked about the number 1. He got a kick out of it. Of course KJ wanted to color too, so I let him, although he kept wanting to eat the crayon! Haha.
Jay had gotten up countless times and I was getting exhausted having to tell him to get in bed 50 million times, in between trying to go over finances with my husband. My husband was also getting irritated. So I sat Jay down and had a long talk with him about why he can’t keep getting up and why he needed to go to sleep, along with finding out why he is getting up. He told me he is “scared of the dark”. Which I can relate to, when I was a kid, I was scared of the dark. There are times that even as an adult it still freaks me out a little (but not for the same reason’s as when I was a kid) I will save that for another blog post though. I explained to him that Mommy and Daddy were right in the living room, that KJ was across the room (they share a room) and that his grandpa was in the next bedroom and that if he needed us he could come get any of us or one of us would come in. I tucked him in with 3 of his stuffed animals and told him to hug them close and I’ll be…it worked. He fell asleep.
I actually had meant to write a good post yesterday but by the time I sat down to write it, I was just..well you know, you probably read it.
So yesterday, The kids and I went to church, this was the first time I had gone in at least 6 months and it’s not the same church I went to then, also this was the first time my children have gone to church. I was worried about them going to the classrooms (separate classrooms at that) because I had never left them with someone I didn’t personally know before. KJ was a little hesitant about going to the lady but he managed after a few minutes of me telling him it’s okay. Jay saw the toys and the other children in the room and had no problem going to the teacher. I was in complete shock, but the service was beautiful. I plan on going every Sunday and if I make this my home church, my husband will start going with us.
After church we ate lunch and the kids took a nap, and then I decided I was going to take one too. Oh, how I love naps but rarely take them. Afterwards we went to Sam’s club and then My dad, My husband, Jay, KJ, and I BBQ’d for dinner. It was such a great Sunday minus the night part where Jay was not wanting to go to bed.
Today, I got to visit with my sister in law and my niece who I haven’t seen in almost a month. Then, I got my house back in order and did activities with the kids and now having a relaxing night with my husband.
I hope everyone had a great weekend and a great Monday.
