The week has been pretty good. It is a really hard adjustment going from 2 to 3 kids. You go from man to man to zone defense. I am always scared that I will forget Kaelis because I am so use to having 2 kids.
We went to Applebees for the first time with 3 kids. The hostess asked us if we needed a highchair, and of course I said no, then I got this look from my husband.. the look of ummm... yes you do, and I said "why" like an idiot, "because you have to put Kaelis's carseat on it." "Oh" I said. " I guess we do" the hostess I am sure thought I was some stupid lady who had no idea she was carrying a infant seat. LOL!
I felt overwhelmed at times and thought to myself, I hope this was a good idea to have 3 children. I think a little of the just had a baby blues. I am feeling like I can manage all of them by myself now.
It is easily forgotten how little sleep you get when you have a newborn. It is such a struggle to get out of bed when the UGLY noise of the alarm clock goes off at 5am. I am a walking zombie until I get my coffee flowing through my blood and waking me up. My days of sleeping in on the weekends are over I think because of the screaming infant who is seeking some of mommy's milk.
Mr. Clark went back to work on Wednesday and my in home daycare kids started back. I know, I am very crazy to start back so soon,but what helps is I am at home and I can sit and have a laid back day if I wanted too. I have not picked any of them up and I roll their pack and plays sideways and tell them to get into the boat, They love it. They are all almost 2 so they can play amongst themselves and can go up and downstairs (my daycare is down in my basement.) I have even been able to do group time and the lesson plan activities I have planned out for the week. Kaelis sleeps most of the day so that helps me get things done when I need to with the daycare kids.
