This morning went well. Laurel slept through it all. Bethel jumped and played with the other children. David watched. Reminder to self: watching is good. Remember not to comment on this as though it were newsworthy.
I managed to finish cleaning the house with a little help from the Sesame Street website (yes, I occasionally use the computer as a babysitter). I did have to pull out the ladder to change a smoke alarm that started beeping; we have very high ceilings. (I have developed an inexplicable fear of heights in my old[er] age, so I usually let Lee do this job.) And I started feeling a bit lightheaded since I hadn’t had breakfast (or maybe I should start taking vitamins again). I felt better after eating a chicken sandwich. I also decided it was okay if the laundry wasn’t done, or my floors weren’t mopped, and then I felt better. Reminder to self: Eat breakfast, take vitamins, remember it’s okay not to be perfect.
A good time was had by all. Children cried when it was over (a good sign). After the last mother left, I realized that I didn’t know most of their names. Reminder to self: make name tags for moms.
Hi I’m so glad for you that the class went well. You must take your vitamins! and eat! 🙂 I was wondering this morning how things had gone so thanks for updating!
I know God helped me calm down. I was able to get David and Bethel to sit down the day before and go through my class with them, and that helped. I also saved a few songs with weird intervals for later, and that took some stress off, too! (Still, last night after getting up to calm a frightened child, I couldn’t go to sleep because I kept thinking about what I was going to do next time.)
I am not a good pill taker…
