After 2 long years of not seeing my husband, not having family dinner, and not putting my kids to bed at night I am finally finished with school! YAY!!! It kind of seams surreal at the moment. I have had all of these great ideas that were or seemed impossible while going to school.
First, I should clean my house! Considering that it has been neglected since we moved in I should probably spend the next week cleaning.
Second, Lets potty train Saige. I am so tired of diapers and would like a break before we consider having another child. She suprised me yesterday when I asked if she needed to go potty and put her on the potty and she went! I finished school yesterday at 4:30 and before she went to bed at 8 she had gone potty 4 times! YAY!! We'll see how she does today.
Third, Say goodbye to the binky. With Rylie we were strict with the rule that after 1 year she could only have it in bed and at 18 months it was gone for good. With Saige it hasn't been so easy. First of all she is really attached to it and whats worse is that Evan and I have been really attached to it. Neither of us wanted to fight her all night when she wakes up wanting her bink. We've been too tired!
Fourth, Interview preschool teachers for Rylie. I got her registered in a preschool in my neighborhood but now I need to go check it out for sure. I've heard a lot of great things about the preschool from mom's of other students so I feel pretty good about it. But, someone else's word is not good enough for me so I will need to get it checked out.
I'm sure I can think of a few other things that need to be done now that I am free from the confines of Dallas Roberts Academy, such as till and plant a garden, plant flowers, paint baseboards,casings,and moldings for my house, clean out the basement etc. These things will come with time. But first we need to have a family dinner and some consistency at home.
I am so excited to feel in control of my time....well, to feel that the girls have control of my time at least.
