Bubba and Princess had their birthday “party”. It was perfect. I love giving them an experience instead of a party because both of them get incredibly anxious being the center of attention and since we have them share their party now they are both so much happier and they love it. (I still insist on separate cakes though but this year they coordinated with Harley Quinn and Bat man)
Princess is back in traditional school and started 6th grade, I can’t believe my baby is 11 and in 6th grade already.
Princess got a phone for her birthday. I feel like I am in this weird stage where I don’t want to text her too much but at the same time I’m loving being able to hear from her more often.
Bubba and Curly started their second year of preschool. They are both have the same teachers they have last year. Curly for sure has one more year of preschool because her birthday is October but Bubba could be going to Kindergarten next year (because he has an August birthday I feel he should have one more year of preschool but it isn’t up to me).
All three littles moved up teachers at daycare. Bubba is in the Pre-K room and his teacher is fantastic. Curly is in the 3/4 room, I miss her old teacher (she used to be Princesses and Bubba when they were in the 2/3 and I love her so much, we still get to see her every morning). Angel is in the Toddler room.
I started a new school year. It is my 6th year and I feel like each year I learn more and more about how to be a better teacher.
I feel like we are getting into the routine of going back to school very quickly this year.
I always need easy ideas to cook for dinner though. We have been eating a lot of sausage and chicken with steamed vegetables.
Next month something exciting is happening. I will be supervising visits with Curly and her mom. I am hoping it goes well and they get more time together
We are going camping a lot more this fall than usual. I am forcing myself to do things I love. I have stopped doing things I loved because they are more difficult with three (and sometimes four) kids and that isn’t fair to me or the kids .
