We are in transition mode here. I called this post “flying the coop” because of all the changes. Many changes with the kiddos, and the biggest one for me in a long time: starting a new job. My former company’s president said to me before I left “I heard you’re jetting off,” referring to my new employer–you can read more about the company here.
It’s been challenging so far. One of the tough parts is that I switched to morning running. I just figured it’s easier to get it out of the way, and I can feel good the rest of the day that my workout is done. However, on Sunday I started to feel crummy, so I took the day off, and yesterday I had sneeze attacks all day, so I had to take another day off. Last night, I took NyQuil so needless to say… another day off from running this morning (does anyone else feel like they’re emerging from a coma after taking NyQuil?) Tomorrow’s goal: wake up to run. Tonight’s goal: get to bed by 9 😉
As for the kids: Gabe is moving up to the “big kid class”, aka the final class before kindergarten in 2016. He says he doesn’t want to go because “the teachers don’t cover us up with our blankets at nap time.” So I told him we would just have to learn ourselves. He can almost touch the bottom of the pool, but has a few more inches to grow. I need to sign him up for swimming lessons, though he says he’s scared of putting his head underwater. Here’s Gabe playing in the sprinkler on Memorial Day: (sorry for the amount of pics, I just couldn’t narrow it down further)
Asher is also moving up at school, to the “Toddler 1” class. He’s working on using a sippy cup (and thank God too, because I’m tired of washing bottles!), he drinks whole milk now, and he’s doing pretty good with feeding himself. He can nearly run, as he’s had about 6 weeks of practice with walking. The kid is quick! He loves to pick up mulch, rocks, and dirt, and try to eat it–yuck! Tonight, I’m trying out a ‘no sleep sack’ night, since he’s outgrown it. And two nights ago was the last time I breastfed him… I just didn’t have anything left. We had a good long run of feeding in the mornings and at night, so I’m happy that we made it this far. Here’s Asher:
