Tales from my life as a mom of 2 sons and 2 daughters

Today is my last day of my 6 day weekend. I am ready to go back to school. I'm not used to having all this free time and it's confusing LOL. Wednesday I went to work with Linda and helped her get closer to caught up on stuff she's behind on. Barely made a dent but at least I made the effort. Thursday a friend of mine came over to watch a movie and have some take out Chinese (Yummy!!!). Friday, Doug came home early from work to start his weekend a few hours early but we really didn't do much. On Saturday we went to a parenting event. We have someone that comes from a state run organization once every 2 weeks to give us things we can do with River to build his development skills etc.. Well each time she comes out or each time we go to a parenting support group they hold once a month we are awarded what they call Baby bucks and twice a year they hold a "parenting event" where they have a baby bucks store and other activities to do. This one on Saturday was their Christmas/Holidays one. They had a bunch of brand new toys donated to the event and we were given a chance to spend them. Most of the event was REALLY BORING. River was SO tired but we wanted to wait for the baby bucks store because we'd saved about 140 bucks for it. Around 11am "Santa" came to visit all the kids. We got in line to get a picture done just because we thought it would be great memorbilia later on and we were one person away from Santa River fell asleep. We gave him to Santa anyway but he never woke up. LOL So we decided to try it again later once he woke up. Just as Santa was about to get up and leave, River woke up so we got his picture taken.....


(You can still see the red mark on his cheek from him sleeping on my shoulder LOL)

Then when we got back from seeing Santa they had the Baby Bucks Store. We made out with lots of goodies for the munchkin... Here is what we got him (we've also gotten him a few other things for his loot)

Sunday we didn't do anything but relax because the weekend was over. I am off today still but still got up about 7 because I don't want to get TOO far off getting used to getting up at 6:10.. Doug went in to get River up this morning and decided to get a picture of him sleeping first :)

Today 006

He'll be 10 months old in a week! Where the heck has the time gone???

My day today will consist mostly of trying to straighten up the house which looks like a small tornado went through it this weekend LOL. Oh the fun :)
