Iâ€™m feeling more positive today. I didnâ€™t have to go any where and I think thatâ€™s what I needed. I didnâ€™t shower till like 4pm and went about my day in pjs. Unlike most of the country we had a beautiful day, it was warm and sunny. We spent most of the day in the backyard, the girls even got to eat sweet potatoes out back in their bumbo seats. After eating the girls alternated between watching the boys run and pulling up grass. I want to hold on to that small moment, it was so peaceful. I was actually able to spend a good bit of quality time with everyone today.
I hate the evening. Starting with making dinner until every one is ready for bed is hell. Iâ€™ve been bathing every one after dinner, bath time is supposed to be relaxing but ours hasnâ€™t been. Iâ€™m going to start bathing the girls during the day. Tonight I didnâ€™t bathe them and up until I had to set them down to make Aidâ€™s bed things went well. But like every thing with 4 kids it all took to long and the girls ended up screaming.
Time and I have had a love/hate relationship lately. Most of the little things take to long. Diaper changes, getting dressed, time between bites. Iâ€™ll be getting ready to bathe the girls, I get them in the bathroom and get things started. Get them down to their diapers, theyâ€™re so happy. So I spend a little time tickling and kissing bellies. I get one in the tub and half way through the other starts to cry. So I have to hurry and finish up so I can start on the one whoâ€™s crying. The one who was crying is now happy in the bath but the one who was happy is now crying. I canâ€™t win for trying. I canâ€™t wait till they can sit up and take a bath together.
Aid and I are giving the potty another shot. Weâ€™re taking it easy and playing it by ear. Today he spent part of the day in a diaper and the other part with out. He went on his own about half the time and the other half I had to remind him. No accidents though. Iâ€™m so ready for him to be done with diapers, but I have to let him do it on his own terms. I wonder what it will be like to potty train girls.
