|GB on the Bars|
Today is the FIFTH day of no school. Friday was a snow day, followed by a three day weekend, followed by today, yet another snow day.
It hasn’t been all bad. On Saturday, GB enjoyed swimming, last night was her gymnastic performance. She thought her outfit was perfect and I smiled and said I thought so too. She was not dressed like the rest of the girls, but fortunately, she didn’t notice and none of the girls chose to tease her yesterday. They were busy enough worrying about how they looked. GB enjoyed performing and even out in La-La land, she held her own.
We usually go out to eat with friends after these performances, but GB was borderline and Hope was definitely on overload. We chose to go home.
This morning they announced school was closed before 5 AM. Today has been a difficult day. My patience is minimal and so is the girls self control. As a result, they have spent much of the day, sitting on either side of me, unhappily engaged in quiet activities. Hope has done some screaming, so has spent some of her day in time out. I told them if they didn’t stop bouncing, I would know they were overstimulated and would put up the kitchen stuff and the dress up box so that it would be easier for them to hold it together. They are now trying to clean up the playroom, without screaming or touching each other. Since Hope still needs to be in line of sight, I am on the floor, blogging and making sure nothing inappropriate is happening. If tomorrow is another snow day ( which, since it is currently drizzling and the temperature is falling, is a real possibility), someone or something won’t survive.
I spent today telling myself that I could
survive do anything for one day. I am not sure that will be true tomorrow.
|Hope joins in at the end.|
