While my oh so fortunate brother and sister-in-law are enjoying the sunny skies of Bermuda my parents are tending to their children: 3 and half year old Henry and 1 year old Ruby. My mom asked me to help out while she had to work on Thursday so I gladly took the day off from molding the minds of my 23 spring fevered rat finks. I headed up to Farmington on Wednesday after work so my parents could go to a work dinner in Park City that night. Well, I will say that Wednesday night was a good night. Ruby, Hen, and I laughed and laughed while aimlessly running around on the deck for over an hour. Then they sat down to a healthy dinner of fruit and chicken strips (my personal favorite), while I sat down to watch some Hills. I even had some friends over a little later. The kids went to bed on time and I thought man I'm made for this. Thursday started early, by 9:30 a.m we were all dressed, fed, and ready for action. So...we headed to the local Somerset Park. Only a few mishaps were had at the park: two bonks on the bean and one accident which resulted in undies taken off and pants no longer staying up without the padding of the undies. Luckily I'm a problem solver so the sash from my coat was made into a belt for the commando Hen's pants. After an hour and a half at the park we headed home for some lunch. Hen wanted to go out and so did I so we headed to Wingers. I was ready to brave the restaurant world as a single mom. We were given a booth with a booster and a high chair. We ate popcorn, grilled cheese sandwiches, french fries, and chicken strips. Geez wish we weren't so health conscious. Hen had the only vegetable.....half a stick of celery! The rest of the day was filled with sticker books, movies, and naps. Oh....and one number 2 accident. Wow Hen potty training is your game! I felt like the day was very successful. I rocked single motherhood, although I was exhausted when it was all over and went to bed at 10:30. Conclusion: I'm not ready for motherhood, especially single motherhood but I could do it maybe once a week and I'm very grateful that all of my students are potty trained.
