|Ah, laundry. I will miss this one day, right?|
|One of the places Curly danced. The teacher|
took pity on me and allowed Curly to dance
with her regular curly hair for the performances
rather than putting a wig on her. There is a God.
3. With improved weather, I will be able to hop out of bed and go for a run before tots get dropped off. This saves time driving to the club and back.
4. The St. Pat's parties that Curly performs at are kind of a pain. Wigs and makeup for a few minutes? Have you seen Curly's real hair, and do you have any idea how hard it is to detach a wig from her noggin? BUT (yes, here comes the positive part), I do enjoy the opportunity to socialize with some of my other dance mom friends. I even suggested to Coach that we invite some of our friends to a few of the shows (the ones that are not held in a church basement for a fish fry, but are at a real establishment) so we can sit and be real people with real social existences for one night.
5. There will always be teachers in need of childcare. The drama teacher at the kids' high school told Mini the other day (when he was trying to convince her to join speech team because he has heard that she is very funny and animated -she was flattered but still plans to play basketball next school year which is smack in the middle of speech season) that he has heard good things about me and might need me full time next school year for his 2 year old. It will all work out.
|Hey, teachers - bring me your sweet, cute babes.|
Babysitting them is nothing but fun (this kid's cold
went on for close to 3 weeks - do people just not
believe in going to the doctor and
requesting an antibiotic at some point?)
7. We have a new water heater. Well, there's something to be excited about. We won't have to replace the water heater for many, many years. Woo-hoo. I am banking on the little things like this to get me thru the dull-drums.
8. The kitchen hood situation - now that is a whole other ball of depressing wax! I can't be positive here - just can't do it.
