Not What I Wanted
Okay, so we will have a grand total of two kids in outside activities this fall. And since said activity was dance, I was very hopeful that the girls would have class on the same night. I would much rather interrupt a weekday routine once a week, rather than twice. But, apparently, my hopes have been dashed. It seems that Princess will have class on Tuesday and Nutball on Wednesday and I will work on Monday and our life will be chaotic. Our oldest child will only be 6. It seems rather unfair that things will already be crazy. I can take comfort knowing I'm not working in the spring. The biggest challenge to this two nights a week dance thing will be the boys. While Princess was in dance this past year I had a sitter come and stay with the other 3 kids. I was hoping to do the same this fall. But now I would need someone two nights in a row. I'm not sure that will be workable. But, can I really ask my boys to play calmly and patiently two nights in a row in a relatively small space near dinnertime? That's the other snag. Princess won't be done until 7:00 and Nutball at 6:30, so I will have to be on top of my game food wise. You can be thrilled to know I will probably be blogging about my many attempts at maintaining sanity. Since I clearly have a handle on things now.
