School is cool!

Song: School Days... The Simpsons :)
"Oh NO... the summer is about to end!!!!"

I finally made the decision (well its not final, but its close) to put BOTH kids in "school"/daycare on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I decided it would be easier to work if the kids were both being taken care of all day and I didn't have to worry about them from 8am to 5ish pm. My intention is to do massage at the Hoffman's office up to 4 hours per day and have the rest of the time to practice my Craniosacral therapy or study uninterrupted. It is such a relief to just make a desicion, since I just wanted to please everyone and be the best mom possible. I felt guily for wanting to put Orion in some kind of day care, but I realize that he's almost a year old and its only 2 days a week. No big deal. I also feel better knowing I'll have the opportunity to study, which I NEVER get to do at home. I feel like I am falling behind in the self study material for the Craniosacral certification, well hopefully not any more! :)
They are going to go to the Good Earth Day School in Leander. Mama Andrea told me about it (since the C-man goes there too) and I loved it from the beginning! It follows a Waldorf and Montessori approach, which I really appreciate. Our next door neighbor Cooper is going to be attending as well, so Leilani will have a plethora of boys to crush on.;) This is going to be a good thing for everyone, I hope. Yeah "School"!
A BIG THANK YOU to Mama Jasmine for offering to babysit Orion on Tuesdays, you saved me and my original plan. Yes, we will have to trade services regardless!!! :) Big hugs to you mama!

On a side note.... The Binky Fairy was a success!!! Its been over a week, and we have only had two meltdowns (which did not last very long) over the loss. She has asked a few times where they are... and we reply "The Binky Fairy took them, remember?" and she says "Oh, yeah" then smiles and tells us about the toys she brought. Phew, that was easier than I thought it would be! Big sigh of relief....

How FUN! I'm sure Leilani will LOVE it, Orion, too!
Ahhhh time to yourself. Great minds think alike, cuz next week Mia is starting at Casa T! I'm so excited..running around getting her stuff together.

Yeah for the Binky fairy! I swear that's the best reminds me of when I told Mia Swipper the Fox swipped her baby crib :) gotta love a sneaky mama!

Yay! I know the C-man will be SO excited to see Leilani! Weighing the pros and cons of work, school and everything in between is exhausting so I am happy to hear that you have come to a decision that should work for all!
