Miriam our nanny teases me horribly because when I have the most work to be done things always fall apart. Today that is what happened!
Everything was scheduled perfectly balancing kids and all the work that needed to be done. By the time it was over with I got vomited on, missed appointments, bribed the pedi office w/cookies (I love those ladies) to ensure there was nothing infectious going on in the house (there isn't, the puke was b/c of antibiotics from an ear infection), and pretty much got the bare minimum done with Miriam's help during the day and Chris' tonight.
Things are not all bad though. Callum is walking more and more and he is looking so good doing it. There are no serious illnesses (just ear infections and allergies). Rachel's important Cerebral Palsy assessment from UNM is coming out next week after the physician team were kind enough to rush it. The best thing today Harmon's Vice-Principal came to me when I was picking him up. She gushed about how she has been watching him since he began and how amazing his progress has been... almost miraculous in her words. He is just really thriving in school and I am in great debt to his teachers and therapists. Two of his school friends are even coming to his party this weekend. I remember when I used to blog about how things were so frustrating with Harmon and now things are going so great for him! It was such an unexpected bit of sunshine today.
Tomorrow I have more work to be done, only one appointment, and even lunch w/a friend. The party is looking to be lovely! I'm surrounded by such great people like Miriam who teaches me great things about my children, the early intervention teams who love my kids, great friends, and of course my husband. It makes the days go by so much better and even when plans fall through all is not lost.
