Restless night

(Written Tues) … Too much shit going on in my head I think.  Either that or falling asleep on my daughter’s floor just isn’t as comfortable as it should be.

Probably both.

Counting down the days til this crappy holiday season is in the past.

I wish that my requests or decisions to do a certain thing weren’t met with even the smallest amount of opposition.  Wanting to have christmas morning at my house with the kids is what I want.  It’s not ‘starting new traditions’.  It’s not ‘making things complicated’.  It’s not ‘a sad place to be’.  It’s what I want.  It’s what we most likely would have done anyways especially since transporting a car load of presents to another house just to open them is less than ideal.  Anything other than what I want is what makes things complicated.  Everything else will be figured out.  What’s most important to me, what would have been most important to us, is completely centered around the kids.  They’re all that matters here. 

Didn’t really plan to write about that just now but I guess I needed to.

One of them might be catching a cold.  Yuck.  Yesterday there was the possibility of fever and some loose poops.  I was hoping we could get at least through Friday without getting sick but that’s probably not going to happen.  It’s like as soon as I take them around other kids they catch something. 

Preschool … it’s on my mind.  I read some information about groups of people who do a sort of at-home schooling.  They create the curriculum and over time have involved a number of families.  I don’t see the benefit in a full day class every day of the week or even a half day class every day of the week.  I guess it kind of depends a little.  A half day every day that focused on a wide variety of things in a semi-structured environment is probably ideal.  I think we’ve been doing a pretty good job on the basics so far.  She seems advanced for her age.  So I’m not sure if we just continue this way for another year and then enter kindergarden or if a classroom setting is best.  We already have her in social environments.

Took them to see santa.  Nothing like waiting til the last minute.  Maybe if we didn’t have to wait an hour plus E would have sat on his lap.  But she didn’t.  Maybe next year.  C took a cute picture too.

I threw him in bed as soon as I got back.  He passed right out.  E … not so much.  She’s sick.  Running a fever; a low one when I took it.  I hope she gets past this quickly.  Keeping my fingers crossed.

Anyways, just needed to wrap up this post.  Might write more later.
