Busy Week!

The kids and I were on spring break this week! Good thing because it has been a crazy busy week!

Tomorrow we wrap up the craziness with Jayden's PreK dr appointment. He's going to get shots...Dave's going with! But the week started out last Saturday. Grandma Tess took us and the kids to the park for an Easter Egg Hunt that lasted about 2 mintues. It was like a swarm of locusts clearing out the crops...insane; Saturday night we went to the shul for our Purim Carnival--the kids had WAY more fun at this than they did the egg hunt. Sunday we went back to Grandma Tess's to hunt for Easter baskets. They had a great time with that. Then we went to see Horton Hears a Who...great movie. Kids both liked it. Monday it was Happy Hallow with Ina, Sasha and friends. That was interesting. Tuesday we went to see the Wiggles; Wednesday we went to a birthday party at Pump It Up--my favorite (insert roll eyes here) while my mom went in for an angiogram to check out her progress since the surgery in November. Today we were supposed to meet some friends, but thankfully they cancelled because we spent an inordinate amount of time grocery shopping since I forgot my wallet and had to rush home to get it then back to the store. All the while, my mom was being tested for a funny feeling in her was apparently the result of a mini-stroke...isn't that wonderful news!? (read the sarcasm here) and in the meantime I am still feeling like crap! I hope I can start feeling normal at least by the end of the first trimester. This sucks!

Anyway, been a busy week!

Tennis Anyone?

Jayden had his first tennis lesson today. One of the moms in my sit-n-play group is learning how to be a tennis coach and offered to take 6 kids for 6 weeks for free and teach them some tennis. It turns out to be a great experience for both the kids and the coach. Jayden LOVED it. He was having a great time (as were the others) and it seemed like he learned quite a bit. We'll see how much he remembers next week. I am hoping that he will start to listen to her more and understand what she is trying to teach, too. She was explaining what they were supposed to be learning with each game that they played, but I am not sure Jayden picked up on that much.

I forgot my camera. Hopefully I will remember next week.

Opposite Day..

You know how when you are feeling bad or down about something and you tell someone you magically feel better about it?

Then why is it that when you are feeling excited about something and you tell someone, you feel less excited about it?

Does the sharing of the emotion mean you divide the intensity of it between you and the ones you share it with so that everyone gets a piece of it? Sort of like sharing a candy bar or pizza...
