So far we are having a really great week. Monday Colby had school. I actually drove him with lindsay for the first time in a month I think. When both kids got sick I took a break from bringing him b/c I didn't want to get Lindsay out much. It was nice to bring him again and ofcourse everyone enjoyed seeing Miss Lindsay. She and I had a good morning while Colby was at school. My parents brought him home...I think I am going to have to start doing that most days b/c Lindsay has gotton really into a routine so I hate to mess her naptime up. We enjoyed our afternoon together and looked forward to Austin coming home.
He was off the next 2 days which are always a great thing! Tuesday we had our maid coming so those days we always have to get ready early and be ready to leave the house. I feel like we are such a circus those days! Austin and I are always rushing around trying to get ourselves dressed and ready and 2 little kids. Colby is usually running around like a mad man. On top of the Maria coming our bug sprayer also came so it was really nuts! I know our poor cleaning lady is always so ready for us to leave. It has become pretty customary for us to go to Lakeside on these days. Colby loves that mall. We wanted to visit a park too but it rained overnight so we figured everything would be wet and nasty. So we just headed straight to the mall. The train wasn't up though so Colby was a little sad about that. He always loves going on PB kids and the Disney Store. I was able to get a few things for their Easter baskets as well. Lindsay wasn't as easy this time to shop with as she has been. I think this was her 3rd or 4th time over there. The other times we went she has mainly slept but yesterday she stayed awake the whole time. She off and on fussed especially when we weren't keeping the stroller moving. We also had to feed her at the same time we sat down to eat. then after that we had to rush home so she could be put down for her nap. its a very difficult age...she is just like Colby in that she is in such a routine that she can't really nap anywhere she has to be home in her bed. So we are back to having these 3 hour windows to get out and do stuff which is hard. I feel bad for Colby too b/c he could have stayed a lot longer. we figured since we came home early we would let Colby play outside for awhile to wear himself out before coming in to nap. I think he enjoyed that and it makes him feel special b/c he gets to stay awake while his sister naps! We put him down for his nap around 1:30 well Lindsay was up by 2 so we really didn't get much of a break! We enjoyed the afternoon just relaxing and hanging out. Colby ended up not napping so he spent more time outside with Austin. He was quite grumpy though so it was an early bedtime for he and Lindsay!
Wednesday Austin was home again...Colby had school and a dentist appointment. It worked out well Austin being home b/c he was able to stay home with Lindsay while I brought Colby to the dentist then dropped him off at school. Its always nice to just be able to bring Colby...it would have been tough to juggle her at the dentist and keep her in the seat that long. She is getting to where she is not fond of the seat and she will only sleep if we are moving. Colby did great at the dentist. He has done so well since he turned 3. He sits in the chair like a big boy and doesn't fuss at all! I dropped him off at school we were early b/c of the dentist apt and the office is right by his school but luckily soon after we got there his teacher pulled up and she said she would let him and Max (who also had a dentist apt) go ahead and come in. After dropping him off I came home. It was nice to have a semi-quiet morning. Austin was mostly working outside so it was just me and Lindsay. After Colby got home we all ate lunch then rested. Our naptimes have been cut short lately b/c Lindsay and Colby's naptime don't line up anymore. We have about an hour of no kids! That afternoon Colby played outside with Austin then we ate dinner and took a walk! As always we sure enjoyed having daddy home with us!
