Friday, September 16, 2016
There were times this week when I told people my new schedule and they were taken aback. Getting up at 4:45 in the morning isn't ideal. But I've weighed what matters to me and I think found a balance that can work. Yes, I am tired Monday through Thursday. And one or two nights a week I have to drive in to make up for the hours that I just can't squeeze in during the preschool work day. But on Friday I could sleep if I wanted to. But more importantly I can visit my son in kindergarten and bring his baby brother to lunch and let him be a rockstar in the cafeteria.
I think we've done a really great job of transitioning to having three little ones. Looking at our weekend calendar I can assure you that we haven't slowed down at all. But the ways in which we fill our days are fun and active and allow us to spend time together usually outside. I can't imagine sleep would be any more fun than that. ;) And my first born has no interest in sleeping past the sunrise so out into the world we go!
Last week (or the one before??) we went to the first instantiation of the family friendly First Friday in hemisfair park and it was quite a success! I can't wait until we get to do all of these fun outdoor activities in the fall when it isn't 200 degrees!
