I don't know if it was just a bad day, the fact that I got my period (sorry if TMI), or what, but I had a horrible day. The kids drove me crazy, the house is a disaster, and I was just in a plain crappy mood. My kids are now almost 3 and almost 2. In a couple of weeks, I'll actually have 3 two year olds for a month and a half. They fight horrible, they destroy my house (and I hate to clean as it is), and they just always want to be on the go. Now that winter is here, we can't really go to the park. They hate to keep mittens on so being outside for any length of time is pretty much out of the question. The indoor play areas can get crazy expensive or just plain crazy with 3 little ones.
With the new year coming, my goal is to have a schedule, albeit fairly flexible, but a schedule for both me and the kids so that I can make sure that they are having fun, learning, and I can get things done. I haven't been very scheduled at all, and I think it is now time to put something into place so that I feel less stressed about the day! I am hoping that with some scheduling, the craziness wll be alleviated somewhat, or at least I won't be as stressed about it. Now, I need to get a plan in place for waht I want to do with the kids. There is a resource network that I want to check out. I am hoping to get together with some friends who have kids and do a playgroup. I want to plan to have art time almost daily even if it is only for a short time. I want have dress up time. I guess I just need to put in some structured play time, and as stupid as it sounds, I'm not sure exactly how I want to schedule the day. If anyone has any suggestions or wants to plan a playgroup, please let me know. My newest goal is to start scheduling my day a little bit more than I have been.
