Beautiful Day.....not so beautiful ending.....

So today was a pretty good day. Boy do I owe Aaron something fierce....as he took Ari (the four-year-old-loud-as-can-be-mouth) with Collin and Kyle to half price books this afternoon. So I got a few hours to myself....with which I gave a breathing treatment (to Ari's younger sister, Alex), and changed a few butts. I did get one game of Literati in, so all was not lost. I should have taken a nap, but alas, sleep still eludes me.

After nap, we were able to color a spring sheet, and sing "Itsy Bitsy Spider"....and then we headed outside and played for a bit in the absolutely beautiful weather.

After work, we had some neighbors over for a mini-cookout. The wife, Julie, is a pre-school teacher, so we have a lot in common, and can bounce ideas off of one another. It's so refreshing and inspiring to be around someone who knows exactly what it's like to work with kids all day and get little appreciation. So we were able to help eachother out with ideas and materials. She has TONS of books that she's purchased for her classroom.

I figured this week we'd do Spring, since Collin's on Spring Break and it's so freaking beautiful outside. So I broke out the planning materials, and will try to do some things with them this week. I also printed out some "communication" sheets to hand out for the toddlers and younger kids each day. My Brazilian boyfriend's dad, said "what? you getting all fancy?" But I think that it will make me look a little more professional.

So, just a little under ten minutes ago, I cleaned up more puke.....this time it is Collin, who didn't make it to the toilet in time. Let's just say that I won't be having any more chocolate shakes for a while. :-&

So, I'm off to shower....hopefully the stench won't stay in my nose all night.....

All puke and no sleep will make you a sad lady Steph!
Glad Aaron took some of the kiddos off your hands for a bit.
You really are very addicted to Literati aren't you, but i can tell you my sister is much much worse!

Oh, so sorry that Collin is sick now! Enjoy the nice weather, it looks like another beautiful day. Hopefully without puke.
