Jack started school on a Friday. Two days later on Sunday Molly woke up sick, Jack seemed to be okay until Tuesday night, the evening before his second day of school/first day with everyone there and promptly had to miss school. Such poor timing considering the kids are rarely sick! Luckily he was sick for about 24 hours and was able to return to school on Thursday.

Last week was Jack's first full week of school and I had lactation counselor training scheduled for the whole week. With a lot of help from family, and friends, and of course Mark, the kids and house were tended to so that I could attend my training.
What a week it turned out to be as I ended up with not only a week long training, but TWO semi-unanticipated births! Babies come when babies come, but poor timing for me! One of the births was the latest (gestationally) I've attended yet as a doula, the other was the earliest I've had. They also happened at the same time. And at the same time as the training I wasn't allowed to miss. What are the chances?!?!
So I ended up missing a day of my training, and one of the births (because I'm only one person, thank goodness for having a great backup doula in these sorts of crazy situations!), and plenty of sleep, but we got it done. Because I missed a day of training I wasn't able to sit for my exam even though I totally could have passed it even having missed some class ::shakes fist:: On the bright side I will have an opportunity to make up the class and exam in October without having to travel too far so I'm looking forward to that.
Ugh, what a week!
So this week I'm playing catch up and trying to get into the groove of our new routines with Jack being in school and saying goodbye to a good friend of mine (and doula backup) who will be moving out of state and oh, it's suddenly September! WHERE DID THE SUMMER GO?! Basically my head is spinning.
I feel like things will calm down a little and I'll get a handle on our new routine soon. Hopefully. Maybe. Perhaps that will come after we install this wood flooring that's slated to happen this weekend. It's always something!
