I'm thankful it's the start of a fresh and new week.
Last week was hard.
Not because of one specific thing.
Just a bunch of stuff thrown together.
One of them being Thursday night last week.
Right as I was getting ready to make dinner Colt came into the kitchen with blood
all over his face.
He had hit his eyebrow on something and had a nice sized gash in it.
Travis was at the JV game.
This was my first major cut to deal with since being a mom.
Really since ever.
Before kids I couldn't handle blood.
I still can't... unless it's theirs.
Motherhood...the things it does to you.
I went back and forth as to whether or not he needed stitches.
Which would mean me taking all three to the ER.
After sitting and looking at it for a few minutes I resorted to technology.
I snapped a picture and texted it to my mom for her and my dad to look at.
We finally decided it would be okay to use a bandaid to keep it closed.
As we were discussing the cut Colt took a glass cup off the counter and
accidently dropped it on the kitchen floor.
I shooed them all out of the kitchen to quickly sweep it up.
As I was picking up glass pieces Emma started shrieking there was blood all over Colt.
And sure enough.
He had cut his foot on the broken glass.
After bandaging him up with Barbie bandaids,
(note to self: invest in more boy and neutral bandaids)
I pulled a "I'm desperate to get out of here" move.
We loaded up and drove twenty minutes to
the McDonalds drive-thru for Happy Meals.
And then to Arby's for me.
A roast beef sandwich, curly fries and extra Arby's sauce fixes all problems.
Didn't you know that?
Fast forward to the next morning.
Colt came to me after breakfast with blood covering his foot AGAIN.
I thought it was his previous cut.
Not so much.
He had cut it AGAIN on a piece of glass I had missed from the night before.
The entire layer of skin on his big toe was gone.
Poor guy kept saying "where's the rest of my toe?!"
So that was just part of the week.
Life without a dad around can be kind of tough.
I just keep reminding myself that this is just a short season.
I think part of it this year is my kids are obviously a year older.
And more aware that they miss their dad being around.
And for me it's been a tad harder adjusting because they're not
babies anymore which means they stay up later.
Which means the days are longer.
My goal this week is to make a list of fun activities we can do at home.
Crafts, kid recipes, games, etc.
Something to fill in part of our day.
Do you have any great ideas?
Websites you would recommend?
I think I'm going to order a subscription of Family Fun magazine.
We had a subscription growing up and I remember it being full of fun stuff!
So that's kind of where I'm at this morning.
Re-evaluating our week and game plan.
How is your long weekend going?!
*best fruit spread EVER! Found it at my local grocery store.
I am wanting to make some crepes to spread it on...wouldn't that be tasty?!*
