Here is my supermom plan for the week:
|Activity||Grocery & Library||Music Class||Dollar Store & Playground||Playdate||Boy’s choice|
|School/Art||Mazes or Tracing||Sticker Book||Chalk||Water mat||Sensory bin with ice|
|Dinner||Spaghetti||Grilled Porkchops||Chicken with roasted garlic sauce (slow cooker 2-3 hr)||Tortellini Soup||Wieners|
I’m not one to make detailed plans because they will inevitably lead to frustration when my children don’t want to follow the schedule. Still, it may be a good idea to have some goals and ideas of things I want to accomplish this week.
If none of the stuff I have planned happens, that is okay too as long as all my (3) children are still alive and well at the end of the week.
This boy is less than 3 weeks old but it already feels like he’s always been a part of this family. At his two week appointment last Tuesday he was 10lbs 1 oz (89%) and 21.75 in (95%).
All of the boys have not been sleeping well. Mr. 0 doesn’t sleep well because he is a baby. He still needs to learn the difference between night and day. He also gets the hiccups quite frequently and thinks the morning starts at 6:30.
Mr. 2 and Mr. 4 were staying up way too late because they kept playing and talking to each other instead of sleeping. Then they would wake up super early and be a bit cranky throughout the day. Some of this may be caused by their adjusting to the baby, and Mr. 2 taking advantage of not being in a crib.
Our solution was to let Mr. 4 sleep with the dog (he does not want to be alone) and Mr. 2 would sleep in the nursery in a crib again. The baby would be in our room. Surprisingly, neither of the big boys complained about the change and I am happy to say that they are falling asleep close to bed time (8 – 8:30) and sleeping until at least 7.
