Just in case you lost track of time. It was a Monday. Seriously.
My oldest is ready to begin Year 10 Term 3. (We use Ambleside Online). No worries. Well, maybe. I had made a few changes to AO’s plan so I needed my copy of what she studied last term. I needed my copy because she threw her copy away last week. Apparently I was into creative document names when I saved it because it took me forever to find it. Exactly where it was suppose to be.
Then I discovered that borrowing an unabridged, complete copy of Moby Dick from the library is almost impossible. However, there are multiple copies of abridged and delightfully illustrated copies.
My husband leaves to take my son to the orthodontist. Martha (3) must hug daddy before he leaves and tell him that she loves him. He forgot because they were running late. Martha realized he was gone about the time he was down the driveway. We all know what happened right? Yeah. Thankfully we were able to call daddy and she was good with that.
I am sure this has never happened to you. I finally got the baby down for a nap. The baby who didn’t think that he needed a nap but he so very clearly did. I walk out of my bedroom and start chatting with my daughter. I look around and, slightly concerned, ask, “Where is Ezra?” Mary responds, “Um, didn’t you just put him down for a nap?”
Why, yes, yes, I did. Ahem. Folks, he is on the move. It was a legitimate concern. I have had no caffeine all day. Exactly.
My daughter, Hannah (9) comes up to me and says, “Mondays are just hard.”
But!! Even this no-caffeine-where’s-the-baby-bye-bye-daddy day was a day that the Lord made. I was rejoicing in it, people!
I remembered the chicken in the fridge. The chicken I meant to cook over the weekend but forgot about. Dinner might have been late but the fried chicken was worth it!
Martha (3) has officially decided that she can go potty all by herself. She also declared that she does not need help getting into her pajamas. So there. She is a rock star. The end.
Sarah (7) finished her 100 Easy Lessons books today! (Phonics) She was not interested in learning to read; she loves being read, too. Some days were hard but she pushed through. She happily put 100 Easy Lessons on my shelf instead of hers.
Mary (15) has planned out the rest of her high school studies. Well, except math. Is it really necessary? She is trying to convince me that it is not.
At the end of this Monday, I am tired. I would love a nice, cold Dr. Pepper and a good book. But I’m smiling. It was a good day.
How was your Monday?
