I admit it..I lied. However, it wasn't my intention to lie. I really had planned on trying to post a few times a week. But life has happened. It appears I should now shoot for once a month! haha!
I am adjusting to my new life title of "Taxi mom". I must apologize to all taxi moms before me. I really had no clue what this job entailed.
I was talking with my sister, who has a 3 and 5 year old at home, about our busy days. She said she was sure it would get easier when they got into school. I quickly informed her that the business doesn't stop...it just changes. I went from bottles and diaper backs....to daycare and play dates, to softball and Tae Kwon Do practice.
Really...let me just show you my day today...
6:30...up and going...kids in the shower, pack lunches, cook breakfast, get backpacks and bags
for further activities

9:00 School day starts..(12 of my 28 students have their homework done...grrrr) BAD MOOD!
3:30 Off Work
3:31 Keeping two students whose guardians can't seem to get them to complete their homework
so I get the privilege of keeping them an extra 45 min to get it done!

What is the deal???? I am not overly complicating my life. I have three kids....they each participate in one sport. I don't have my kids in too many activities. There are just some days that I wish there were just a few more hands. I don't want a nanny...I do enjoy seeing my kids practice each day....Just wish I could do it and not feel like I am "running" each step of the way!
So....again...I am sorry. I need to schedule in Blog time! Lunch break? IDK....I will try and get better! :-)
