Today is already a better day.
I had a good cry last night and vented at my hubby. Then I managed to actually get some sleep in between nursings!
This morning, hubby decided to go in late and give me a hand. My dad is coming in this afternoon to stay overnight and I was totally stressing about the house. Brent got up and vacuumed as I nursed baby Zed and fell back asleep. My darling hubby also got the little kids up and fed, and the big boys up and doing their math.
When I got up, I could still hear the vacuum, so I left Zed in bed and had a shower. So wonderful, I didn't even make it into the shower at all yesterday. I came downstairs and everyone was happy and fed and the boys were almost done their math! I have a terrific and understanding hubby and thankfully he has an understanding boss. Brent called in and told them that I had a rough night and needed a hand this morning and they told him to come in when he was ready. They are terrific there, really family friendly.
It is funny that when Brent was self-employed he could never do that, but now as an employee he has a bit of leeway.
So Superboy is proud of himself, all done math by 9:30, we have even done a few other subjects now. The Boy played a board game with the littles for a while and now they are happily ensconced with the tv for an hour while I work with the big boys.
Yippee!! We actually did some real school today! And it is only 11 am. I have a roast in the slow cooker for supper and now I just need to tidy up the house, fold laundry and make up the bed for my dad before leaving for the airport to get him at 2:30/3pm. Oh and dress 5 kids and get them out the door with me.
It is amazing what one good day does for my outlook, especially with clean floors and bathrooms, that my hubby made happen!
Thank you guys for your support, I am reading about your lives in my reader, but not finding much time to visit and comment right now. I am thinking of you all though.
Here is my babe in a new outfit from Auntie Shay, thanks for enjoying him with me.
