Weekly Wrapup: 9/26 - 9/30

As you may know, we have been in the middle of major renovations in our house since the end of July.  It has been an exciting, trying, crying and anxiety laden time in our lives.  Little one has been right in the middle of the uproar and her schedule (trying to figure out if we had one) has been messed up.  Daddy and little one worked getting furniture back into our house!

For the first time in over 3 months, I had to travel for my job. I was off to Boston Monday through Wednesday. Getting back into a routine was the first order of business for Daddy and little one.  Not an easy task.  This is our supposed schedule :
  • Get up at reasonable time (around 8am)
  • Eat breakfast (why is that one so hard to get done?)
  • Get dressed (and take shower for little one if she did not have a bath the night before)
  • Mommy's Morning out (in our case it should be Daddy's morning out!)
  • Lunch
  • About an hour of "school"  in the early afternoon
  • Play Play Play Play ("wait you need shoes to go outside"; "no don't <insert your defnition of NO>")
  • Make dinner (why does it always take longer with HELP?)
  • Eat dinner
  • Story time
  • Bed by 8pm (okay more like 9 or 9:30)
This last week Daddy and little one came close.  Yes we missed dance on Monday but not really surprised as Daddy doesn't always think of that.

Outside of getting back into a semblence of a routine, the big thing we did this last week is use our imagination.  Bill let little one have a big box to play with.  Here is what we learned this week:
  1. How to build a tent
  2. Cages hold back the monsters
  3. Hide and seek
  4. Tossing the ball into the "basket"
  5. Tell stories about the box and her dwellers

Fun fun stuff and I loved that little one wanted to teach us these things.  I have always found one learns more teaching another!
