Like a moron, I waited to schedule all of the appointments that needed scheduling until right before school. In retrospect, I realize I should have done it right after the kids got out for summer vacation. Hindsight is a lovely thing.
So last Monday, I brought the boys school shopping. We went with the girls I do daycare for and their mom. OMG. I had forgotten how much of a pain in the butt girls are to shop with. In every single store (even if they didn’t get anything) it took the B and Jess for times longer than it took Killian and Corwin. It would have been a lovely little socio-scientific observation if I hadn’t been ready to strangle them. I think their mom was even more annoyed! (For more on boys/men and how they think, check out Brynn’s blog today – it’s awesome!)
On Tuesday, I had to get my new bifocal contacts checked. (That’s what I get for spending so much time on the computer!) and Corwin had to go to the dentist for fillings.
On Wednesday, the poor little bug got fitted for braces.
On Thursday, there were appointments at the doctor’s office.
On Friday, I had to quick make a Pocahontas costume for my niece’s birthday party on Saturday and then drive three hours to Detroit to go to the party.
We’re back to Monday and I just got back from Killian’s high school orientation (yikes!), Corwin gets his braces on Wednesday and school starts next Tuesday. Somewhere in here, I have to write a book – the deadline is bearing down like a freight train.
