First week of school - CHECK!
Our routine seems to be falling into place now. Hayley likes her school. Trevor wasn't sure if he liked it or not, but hasn't given me any problems with going. He was mad that they never got to play with the toys in the classroom, but once he found out they would get a toy if they were good, he was set on that darn toy! He made it through the week and was so happy yesterday (Friday) when he came out and showed me his Monster truck and three pieces of candy he got for being good all week. He is dead-set on being good all the time, now. HAHA. He is a good kid anyway and doesn't like to get in trouble, so I wasn't too worries, but then again, he got the one teacher Hayley hoped he didn't get...cause she's mean. My main fear is that the first time he hears a tone in the teacher's voice directed at him he is going to lose it. Time will tell. She wrote "Good kid!!!" on his weekly progress report, so I'm hoping everything just keeps sailing along. I miss the little toot during the day, but it's been nice to be alone, too. I'm still functioning on low steam these days, so being alone has given me a little time to try and work my own things out. I'm still working, too, so it's been rough getting up at 4:30, working until 7, getting the kids up and out the door by 7:45, and then coming home to clean a little or go for a walk before my 10-12 shift. I'm getting back in the swing of things though. I get a few hours to myself after work to eat lunch and veg out a bit, which I really need right now. Then, it's off to get the kids again at 2:40 and 3:40. The parking issue at the schools was hectic and frustrating the first few days, but we have it down now. It does suck that I pick Trevor up an hour before Hayley, so we come home for about 20 minutes before we go right back up there to get her. Yuck. But, they are happy and liking school, so that's the most I could ask for. Now to hope it stays that way the rest of the school year. :)
