I'd tell you that Addilyn went to the dentist to get two cavities filled. I was too nervous to take her, so Chris did and it went horribly. Turns out she has four cavities and they couldn't fill them because she couldn't handle it. Which makes sense since she's three, and it was just too much. We still have to go back next week to get temporary fillings. But I'm dreading it. And feeling guilty that we could have prevented it if we didn't let her have as much sugar and brushed more. See ya later fruit snacks.
I'd tell you that I miss working out, yet I don't know how to fit it in. Thankfully the weather has been nice enough we walk most days, but I know that won't last long. I want to feel strong and more in shape and need to find a way to make it work at least a few times a week.
I'd talk about how Addilyn is in an extreme clingy, dependent stage. Which is crazy because she is incredible clingy and dependent as in, but has taken it up a notch. I'm not sure if it's because of preschool (which I was hoping for the opposite effect), or just a stage but it's so hard. She cries when I leave her with anyone, including Chris. She doesn't even go in the bathroom alone, and bedtime includes one thousand mamas.
I'd tell you that I miss teaching. I don't know if it's because we've had a few rougher weeks here lately, or because I've been feeling lonely and lacking adult conversation but I miss working. I can't imagine leaving my kids and am so happy that I get to stay home with them, but I miss having a purpose other than motherhood.
I'd tell you how thankful I feel for our house and how much I love it. I still can't believe that we moved when a few months ago we weren't even looking for a house. I'd tell you all the time I spend looking on pinterest and instagram for decorating ideas and how I wish I could be a personal shopper and decorating for people's house.
I'd tell you about the $35 I spent on Addilyn's school pictures and I can't wait to get them back. I was there when they took them and let me tell you, they will be real winners.
I'd tell you I'm ready for the weekend and am hoping for a little alone time or time with Chris without the kids. I also can not wait for Sunday and Monday and dressing the kids in their costumes and eating all of their candy.
