What a week

This week has been sooooo busy!! Monday my little man started 1st grade and this week the princess and I set my class room. The big guy loved school this week and is sad that this is a long weekend. The princess is already ruling over the preschool and loves her teachers (so do I). I had a fast paced week setting up and doing some training this week, My classroom looks good and I have full roster, 12 three year olds with a waiting list. I had 3 parents request my class for their kids, I have never felt so appreciated. I loved my class last year and I know that this year will be a great one. I also have been working on making cards this week, I have made over 50 cards in 9 days. I do not know how I am fitting all of this in but I am and I really do not feel too tired. Well I have to go make diner, I hope everybody has a great weekend!

First day of 1st grade

I can not believe it my baby boy is in the 1st grade!!! He had great first day, he saw alot of he friends from last year and his best friend is in his class again. I hope that this year is as wonderful as last year. This is his teachers last year to teach so I have some mixed emotions about that but I have not said anything in front of the big guy. Tomorrow the princess and I start our week of set up at our school (I got to play hooky today). I hope the kids had a great day in school.

Catch Up

I know I have not posted in a while but with school starting and me starting a business things have been a little busy. Yes I said I have started a new business with the help of my Aunt and Mom. I officially opened My Sentiments Exactly on Monday. I make handmade, custom cards and invitations. I have been busy trying to get a good inventory put together for the Aspasians Art & Craft Fair on Sept 13. Needless to say that is not always easy with the kids wanting to "help".

My big boy starts the 1st grade on Monday. We find out who his teacher is tomorrow and he can not wait. I can not believe he is already in the 1st grade it seems like yesterday I was get him ready for kindergarten. I am so proud of him, he is such a good kid and he has such a big heart.

My little princess starts preschool Sept.2 and mommy can not wait. She has spent very little time away from me this summer and I am just not use to a high demand person. I love her to pieces but she is really high demand! She gets to go to school where I teach (it is also where big brother went). All the teachers know her and big brother, the are all in for a big surprise with her, she is nothing like her big brother. She will have them all wrapped around her little finger before the first week is over. I think she will really enjoy preschool and get alot out of it.

Well that about covers it, I think . The bathroom is still not done and the little princess is still not completely potty trained. She has her days that she wants to go and others she could care less so for now we are still wearing diapers. I hope that I will be able to blog more soon.

I know that it has been awhile since I posted but live has been funny so I thought I would fill you in. My two kiddos have not been able to play outside much so when the temp started heading down I pushed them out side. While they were playing one day I worked on some laundry ( I can see them from laundry room window) I soon noticed Brooklin was not outside so I headed for the kitchen to what she was up to. As I came around the corner I noticed the floor was wet and the dog's bowl was missing. I looked by the back door and found Brooklin had sloshed the bowl all the way to the door and found a straw (out of the trash can). Yes she was drinking the dog's water with a used dirty straw!!! Once I got over the yuck factor I had a good laugh. We have also caught her out side in high heeled dress up shoes that are at least 5 sizes too big. (I need to get a pic of that) Mason starts school the 25th so we are counting down the days. He is excited and loves that we had to buy school supplies again. He thought you just bought them once and that was it. (I wish!!) Our remodel is still going a little slower than we hoped for but you gotta to do what you gotta do.

My impulse buy

Those of who know me well know that I am not a big spender and very very rarely buy on impulse but .... yesterday I did. My mom and I went to The Dump furniture store and I was over whelmed by it. Mom bought a new coach set and an end table that are perfect for her house. Then while she was setting up her delivery I walked through the clearance section ( my first mistake) and I found this really cool dining table that is round and has leafs to make it huge (like to seat 10-11 people). I asked how much (my second mistake) and then lady standing beside me said "I was looking at that table too" then when the sells person told us the price she said she wanted it too (her mistake). So I told her sorry I asked about it first and I was purchasing the table (oops did I say that). Well needless to say I bought a table that they normally sell for $1300 for $200 without even blinking, what was I thinking!! Then we had to drive back out to Irving last night to pick it up. Well I now have three tables and need to sell two so, if you know any one....
Oh and an update on the toddler bed, Brooklin is doing better. Two nights ago we had a bad night but other than that she seems to be adjusting well now. Potty training is still a on going process. I will keep you all posted.
