Faith and Wilson are going to VBS at Cross and Crown this week (which is where Faith went to school this past year). It has been fabulous! I have had three mornings to myself so far this week. Miller has been with me, but he naps every morning and is easy when he is awake. Monday I taught water aerobics and took a nap. Tuesday morning I made a skirt and did Bible study. Today I did my Bible study, tried to make a skirt (but it didn’t go very well), and then I went to the mall to return something and stroll around. I have had a taste of extended “Becca time” and it has been fun. I love being a mom, but sometimes it is hard to do it all day. Tom keeps trying to encourage me to send the older two to school part-time next year, but I keep thinking about how much it costs and how they will only be little once. I want to be with them as much as I can.
On the flip side, because I had free time in the morning I was able to have the energy to do a lot of fun things in the afternoon with them. On Monday, Faith and I went to see Dr.Simmons and then get ice cream. On Tuesday I took Faith, Wilson and Elliot (Faith’s BFF and neighbor) to the pool at the Y. Today I played “Bob the Builder and Wendy” with Wilson and made muffins with Wilson. Then tonight I played Barbies with Faith in her room before she went to sleep. It has been a very productive and fun week.
Who knows what will be done tomorrow!!
I called out, “Wilson, what are you doing?” He said, “I am being a Daddy.” I went into my room and he had emptied the entire laundry basket onto the floor and was putting on Tom’s shirt, shorts and had the socks on already. Too cute.
