Well I’m excited! I get the kids from Wednesday morning until Saturday evening by myself as Becky is going to New York on business. I also just booked them a photo session with Portrait Innovations for Wednesday afternoon. For Becky and Kirk’s Christmas gifts from the kids we’re going to take pictures of the two of them together. There aren’t any really other than what I’ve taken or what Mimi has snuck and got. Then while Mom is getting Superman’s pictures done we’re going to sneak off to Micheal’s which is right next to the studio and pick up frames for them to paint and decorate any way they like.
Kayley gets her phone call from Santa on Monday. Their packages from the north pole should arrive sometime this week or early next week. And with the extra money from my overnights I’ll be able to finish up my Christmas shopping next weekend. I’ve got everything picked out it just needs purchased.
I love having a job where I enjoy working overtime.
Had to take Ty with me to the dentist today for my cleaning. Upon seeing how well behaved, smart, and inquisitive he is and how I work with him my dentist took my phone number for one of her hygienist and to keep in the office for use should any of her girls need a last minute sitter.
Also Ty now wants to know if he can have a doctor and a dentist kit for Christmas. So guess who is going to be getting frequent oral exams from a 4 year old.
Kass, Mom, Superman, and I have all caught a stomach bug. Here’s hoping Kayley and Ty don’t get it too. Poor Ty though having to put up with me.
Tyler had a great first day of preschool. He cant wait to go back Wednesday. Soon as he saw me outside waiting he tried to sneak out. Everytime to teach wasnt looking in his direction he’d try to inch toward the door. He says he didnt learn anything but made friends.
Kayley got home at 8:30 this morning. She’s been sleeping at her dad’s since but should be home soon. Kinda missed my little Death Eater.
Tyler is starting preschool on December 2… I’m nervous. He seems to be excited. But I’m nervous. Its only 2 hours three mornings a week. He needs it. After our experience this summer he really truly needs something that will ease him away from me and into school. I hate seeing him so anxious and out of sorts. I also hate seeing how close he’s getting to being a big boy and making my position with his family pointless.
His mom was running super late tonight so I took him to karate. She didn’t arrive until he was coming out of class. He ran to me nearly knocking me over with his hug and asked instantly if he was allowed to come home with me to spend the night. He didn’t care that his mom was standing right there. He didn’t want her. She didn’t matter. I hate this so much. I’m coming in to work earlier getting out late nearly every day. She’s trying to get him in bed earlier at night. On her weekends she’s sending him to her father. Am I allowed to shake her and remind her she has TWO wonderful children who need her to step her ass up and be a mother? Because I so want to do that.
