Our Week in Review and Tot School

Well here I was so excited about getting back into a routine with the boys to do fun learning activities and 2nd week in and it all goes haywire. Of course, with good reason. I was deathly ill last week with a breast infection! I don't think I have ever been that sick. And the first antibiotic didn't work which delayed the healing that much more. So needless to say we didn't get much done last week. Thankfully on Tuesday my MIL took off work to stay with us so that I could rest. The boys loved spending time with her.

And I don't think this week is going to be much better. Aaron turns 2 next Monday but we are going to do his party this weekend. I have got to get my house ready for company all weekend and I have to get his party stuff together. It is going to be another crazy week!

If anybody has any ideas how to balance everything and to get in all the activities that you want to do with your kids AND keep the house clean please let me know!! I am having a hard time trying to figure out how to get it all done!

But here are still some pictures from the week...

Here is Alyssa at my parents last weekend - smiling at her Poppy. She has the prettiest little smile!

The boys loved playing with their cars on the kitchen floor this week. They really did work on playing together this week and fighting was actually at a minimum - I guess they knew that Mommy was sick and couldn't handle much!

Poor Seth did get a bit bored :-( He was ready for Mommy to start feeling better.

Aaron had fun with his car garage.

Aaron LOVES his oatmeal in the morning!

Alyssa hit a big milestone this week...we moved her from the cradle in our room to her crib. Why is this always so much harder on the Mommy than the baby?!?! Now if I can just get her to sleep through the night! She is doing good though...she gives me at least a 6 hour stretch, sometimes a 7 hour stretch if I'm lucky :-)

Sorry there is not much to post and sorry that you probably won't get any good learning activity ideas from this post this week.

  1. Alyssa is just precious-love that smiling picture!!!!

    I know what you mean about keeping it all together-it's hard! They won't all be little for long-someday we'll have a clean house and miss the pure chaos!!!

  2. Way to go on the move with Alyssa! We've had a really tough time with this at our house...

  3. I seriously hope you're feeling much better. It's great to know that the kids are working on playing together. Your tiny one is adorable. Thanks so much for sharing!!

  4. When we had our second baby, I was having a tough time. My only time to clean was when the kids were in bed asleep. My hubby helped alot because I had complications and was on wound vac therapy for 6 weeks after having my c-section.

    I hope things go smoothly as the weeks progress.

  5. Hope you are feeling better!!!
