I looked at the calendar this morning and counted the weeks between now and May 7 when Number 4 will make his or her appearance. Nine weeks if I count this week and eight if I don’t. Funny – last week when it was 10 weeks to go I felt like I had plenty of time, but 9 and 8 are not very big numbers and suddenly I’m feeling like I have a lot to do.
I have made progress in some areas- early greens have been planted and some of the organizing has been done. I cleared a bunch of stuff out of the utility/laundry room last week, and can walk through there again. F and Su had both their birthdays (5 and 4) and their birthday celebration, and W and I started a trial potty-training week.
I still need to:
In addition as the weather improves I really do like to take the children to the playground regularly, our yard is small and half occupied with my garden so they need some space to run.
I keep telling myself “Just do a little bit today and tomorrow there will be less to do.” but sometimes that doesn’t even convince me!
Ah, well, the boys are awake so I’ll go see if I can knock something off of my list!
