Default How's Your Post-Holiday Monday?

Mine is full of whining, crying, fussing, and we're doing lunch and naps an hour early...

Only 1 kid today besides my own 2 and we're having a blast. Had a water fight this morning and plan on having snow cones this afternoon.

Ugh- it's been a rough morning. Gross diapers, likely from poor eating all weekend, a few have runny noses, and my own are exhausted. Did i mention I have a tour in 10 minutes?! Great

Mine are back from being closed all last week...

today I have a 7 month old who is furious that I don't hold him all day

And a 2 year old whose dad told me this morning that he's so happy I'm open again because she's been a disaster all week

We'll get through this.

It's been going okay so far. Got outside for a fair amount of time this a.m. and 2 out of my 7 kids are sleeping. My 2 sibs that are the most challenging haven't disappointed me in that respect today.
We spent about an hour working on a paper mache mountain and they really got into that. It's Pike's Peak in Colorado. They asked if they could make a train to go up it too....hmmm, not sure if we're that talented.

Tired kids = early naps, even for the ones who NEVER nap! These kids must have had super busy weekends.

12 mo was grouchy from the get-go. Tired today, mom said.

18 month olds were great until 11:05. They are officially on 1 nap starting today, and that last stretch while I was prepping lunch was rough. Now all is quiet. T

Seems like a doctor's office here. Of the four I have on Mondays, one is out with hand, foot and mouth disease, another went home around 11 with hand, foot and mouth disease, a third is starting to break out with hand, foot and mouth disease and the fourth just went home because they wouldn't be around to pick up later so had to pick up early.

My day is going great! My 2.5 yo challenging dcb isn't here today, wasn't here part of last week all and sad to say, but it's been wonderful! He won't be here all week either. The only problem I'm having is with my ds. He didn't even nap for an hour!

I'm hoping for extra long naps from the littlest people. I found out that my biggest dck has been cleaning up toys in the living room before lunch by shoving them all underneath the couch...that made me seriously grumpy at him. Apparently clean up time has to be supervised for awhile now, which means lunch will be pushed later. Isn't that lovely?

I can't wait for school to start...

My day is BEAUTIFUL!! My 17 month old actually slept for 2 hours and now is just laying there quietly while the others are continuing to sleep!!!!

This morning went beautifully with no fighting, no tattling, and no taking of toys, it's been a glorious day here!

Tattling, whining, bugging each other, and on and on.

I don't have the patience to deal with it, either. I've been sick for the last week and didn't even get out of bed on Sat.

Naptime is in 10 mins. YEAH!

Parent of two came in after they took a week off and said neither one naps anymore. One is five and I have not napped him for a while. Other one just turned three and there is no way

I had a visit with my food rep this morning too!

Did you get the cookbook or is that something specific to my agency?

I had my FP visit week before last, but no cookbook. Got a book about a broccoli loving superhero kid Maybe I am too particular about children's books, but this was not a good book
Do you get tattoos? (for the kids! not for you )

So far so good! Only 2 that aren't mine today. New baby's first full day! Slept for 40 mins in the PNP which is pretty good for a cosleeping breastfed baby who doesn't sleep in a crib! My DS doesn't nap either so it's all good. She's playing quietly while my DS watches a movie. I'm going to try and eat soon!!

Not too badly, although my one two year old is becoming more tattle-tail-y by the day.

Today:
"She's looking at my sticker! She's looking at me! She's waking away! She's waking away! She's waking away!!!" Can't say I blame her...

Oh. At the spring nutrition training, we got a new handbook. Full of great stuff like: raw fruits and vegetables must be chopped to 1/2" or less, or cooked, or mashed. For children under four.

Those chopped raspberries are so yum! And mashed cantaloupe
