Spring Break? More like Spring Nightmare!

I know, I'm technically only 25 minutes into Christian's Spring Break, but I'm already over it. He told his Dad today on his way out the door "I don't like you anymore". What a bunch of bologne. The two of them are best friends, and Christian worships the ground he walks on. It's a deadline day for my job (yes, for those of you who didn't know, I attempt to work 15-20 hours a week from home). I just am in a real foul mood, and wish that we could've jetted off to Key West, the Carribean, or even to Disney World this week. But, parents of kids who are in a fancy private school and have Cochlear Implants usually don't have enough money to scrape together for a latte, let alone a nice family vacation during peak travel times.

I did try to fill our week up with some fun activities. Christian's Gram is taking him to his FIRST CIRCUS this Thursday! He is so excited, and can't wait. We're meeting up with one of Christian's buddies from school (who also isn't going anywhere for break...another CI friend) to head to the zoo. Oh, and my gym's Kids Club--Christian is going to get his first experience there tomorrow. I do plan on spending ALOT of time there this week. How else am I going to get a shower? I know I can always count on my girlfriends in the neighborhood for park dates and basement playdates (and my 3pm coffee and 5pm wine) in case the weather doesn't cooperate.

I'm thankful to be heading to Bible Study in just a bit to clear my head and pray. I certainly could use some patience and positivity this week!

I can't remember when Christian's birthday is... but we noticed a huge increase in "sassy" when Matt hit four. He talks back and says nasty things once in a while- we don't put up with it, but he still does it. Argh. I think it is another leap in development- they learn to put their feelings into words (even if the words are inappropriate), and they don't have the impulse control to NOT say those things yet.

I miss vacations, too- we go to California to visit family, but we don't really get "vacations." My in-laws took us skiing back in December 2007... we should all be given tickets to a cruise in the Bahamas!

I hope the rest of your spring break gets better and you get to relax a little!
