Pick a day before Feb. 14th? OK, the day before, of course. Not exactly a usual day… all of these are more or less normal parts of my life, but there usually aren’t as many of them in a single day. Here’s a Day In The Life of the Mommyvan crew. Check out Parentwin for more DITLs from this week!
Every day starts this way for me, but this was an early one thanks to a girl child with bad dreams. She got back to sleep, i gave up. Also: Me, 5:30 AM.
On Thursdays we don’t do much schoolwork at home, but there is still planning and filing to be done. I do enjoy a nice view while I work.
Child #1 appears, followed by #s 2 and 3 hunting up some breakfast.
Time for a little play while I get snacks ready to take with us to our co-op class day.
While the kids are in their classes, I get a chance to chat and eat in peace. Today’s hot topic: a Groupon for… vajazzling (don’t Google that, seriously. NSFW. Not safe for kids or your own sanity, either.). Co-op parents take turns making soup each week. Today was Moroccan garbanzo bean. Yum!
The kids take two classes here, Science & Nature and Games Around the World. Today they exchanged Valentines with their friends.
What treasures are we bringing home today? A superworm grub to add to our beetle collection (we’ve already watched three of these guys pupate and emerge as beetles, it’s pretty cool!) and some Olympic torches.
Pizza lunch and playground time with friends, one of the highlights of our week.
Tag-team parenting today, Daddy home early to supervise math drills and piano practice while I head out for an afternoon of medical adventures. An hour and a half at the rheumatologist’s office and another half-hour at the pharmacy. I used the time to pick up some Valentine goodies for the kids.
