Busy Kid

Gary is awesome with all the kids. For the past few years, though, he has had to work, work, work so that we could survive financially and keep me home. It has taken him a bit out of the day to day stuff with Ayden Jane.

Me returning to work has been a crash course. We were talking tonight before he went to work and he was saying how busy she is. Basically, it comes down to the fact that she does not watch TV or do anything static like that for any length of time. I can get about a 1/2 hour out of her in the early morning so I don't have to get out of bed right away, but that is about it.

She does love a mission and will 'work' for a good while. Also, if she is outside she can find lots to do. In the house, though, she is into everything. Now I do think that the cold she has right now is decreasing her attentions span even more, but it is just a part of her. There is no taking your eye off her even for a minute!

I mentioned that AJ is not feeling great. Actually, she and Mckenna have the same cold. They started with the stuffy noses last weekend and this weekend they both sound a bit like it is heading toward the lungs. Oddly, neither one of them gets sick very often but they sure picked this one up at the same place. I see a trip to the doctors office coming early this week if things don't improve tomorrow. Of course, it will be interesting to see how I pull that off with jury duty on Monday and work on Tue.!
