Monday's Back

It's  Monday.

The first Monday I'm alone, really alone. I am doing all the morning driving (all three kids) and classes. I was a little (a lot) nervous. I was tired, I didn't get as much done the night before (lunch, bags, etc) as I wanted to. Mostly I wanted to get through the morning without snapping or yelling orders and no one crying.

We were semi successful. This helped:
 It's the sun, sideways.
My computer hates me and won't change it.
It looks eerie because I was playing with an app for my phone
(Vignette for the Droid)

Isn't it amazing how God knows knows what you need just when you need it?

I needed the sun this morning to brighten the mood. We made it on time, with only a little snapping. We talked (me and the bigs) about how it's hard with a little one. How we all need to help out and for them that means doing what they need to do to leave. We talked about how we could make the morning easier. My 5 year old decided he had to get up earlier. He doesn't like rushing and he would rather be woken up so he has more time.

So that's where we're at, adjusting schedules and expectations as we navigate this new family we have become. 

Hopefully I'll get back to writing too, I have so much in my head to get out! I want to tell you about my hospital stay, breastfeeding, my little girl growing so big! It's amazing, you would think the lack of sleep would make me foggy. My brain feels alive, lit with electricity (after the first 20 or so minutes of foggy). Maybe it's the hormones? I don't know, I just wish my body could keep up with my mind!

I also have my first piece up at Technorati Women. I'm talking about physical education and a local school who has purchased a Wii fit to use to teach it, here is a little sample....
If they can play dodge ball and soccer on the Wii, why not get out actual balls and let them run around and engage with each other instead of a computer? Why must we “soften the impact of victory and defeat”? What kind of future generation will this create if they can’t handle real victory or defeat?
Head over to Technorati to read Taking the Physical out of Phys Ed
