I woke up today with a few things on my mind…
1-I had a houseful of kiddos coming. It was a no school day and I always have extras on those days
2-Karl was likely going to gone. He had plans to visit friends for a the day
3-Carver was going to get a second set of tubes in his ears.
I noticed that Karl was home. He didn’t go from his second shift job straight to his friends house as planned. He was up shortly after me and went on to tell the story of why.
A deer ran into his car on the way home. See the big dent in his door?
Check out the fur in the headlight.
Furn near the side mirror…..
Most amazing was that the deer shattered the glass window of the driver’s side. As Karl was driving the deer ran into the side of his car. He said he turned his head to look and all he could see was deer and that’s then the glass from the window poured in on him.
Ugh…poor guy. Since he started his job in mid January he has hit TWO deer and one night there was a herd of cattle out on the road. UGH. That’s in only 10 weeks time!!! The fix is just over $500 and it’s an old car so he didn’t have collision insurance. UGH.
That’s the Karl story…now the Carver story….
Little Mr. Attitude went in early to the hospital. He was the first morning appointment.
He did cheer up….That little ham!….check him out playing peek a boo….
He only wanted Mommy after surgery.
He was heading home by 9am. They stopped by to see me and he was HUNGRY and his normal self. I told him he needed to take TWO naps today…hopefully he does as his mommy was pretty pooped too.
….and now the childcare report…
Even though I had a full house, the day went great! I had some activities planned for the kids….a painting project, some Easter coloring pages and even eggs to dye….but alas. We did none of that. No cute little Easter projects are going home with the kids.
I got a project out and was ready to call them to come and this is what I found….a HUGE blanket house. I left the project out thinking I’ll let this “house playing” run it’s course and then when they start arguing, I’d have them do the activity. Well they NEVER argued. They got along the entire time.
The big kids let the little ones play and the little ones didn’t tear down the “house”. I’ve never had house playing go so smoothly…not even with my own kids. I am a true believer in having activities be guided by the kids and their interests and I’m also a true believer in that children need more time to play and less structured time…so today they played in the blanket house.
I’m writing this at nap time. Who knows…maybe we’ll get to one of the activities after nap time.
So…that was my Friday so far. Tonight we have church and I’m going to try to talk Hubby into going out to eat either tonight or tomorrow night. Monday I start my diet for my upcoming testing for my cancer recheck.
