If I don't answer it's because I'm self medicating

Life has been less than calm lately. Our lease ends the last day in August and apparently that just recently sunk into my brain. So I have been all hot and bothered with trying to figure out what we are going to do. B, who will now be referenced as 'Sassy pants' from here on out, starts school in less than a month! (I can't even put into words how excited I am) So school has been on the forefront of my mind. So I've been researching. Since this is our first experience with children doing the school thing I was behind the eight by about a year or so with getting him on a charter school's list. tsk tsk.

Long story longer, our local school is ranked 83rd in a district of 120. In case you were wondering, yes, that is pretty bad.  So the hunt began for a new place to live in a better district. After being on craigslist, for basically 24 hours straight, the heavens opened and a beam of light streamed in my line of sight to a 3 bedroom townhouse across town. 
-insert singing angels here-
And the school is ranked...wait for it...wait for it...10th!!!! I have been ecstatic! So we move the end of this month.

Now enter trips to the liquor store and heavy sedatives for the kids

Our daughter, who will now be known as 'she-devil' has:
  • played in the 10 lb bag of flour more than once
  • decided her baby brother makes a fabulous stepping stone
  • gotten the scissors out of the drawer and held the handle in her mouth while walking around the house
  • thrown temper tantrums that I swear will get the DCF called on me
Why is this relevant? Because with this...child...running around how the heck am I supposed to get anything done? Honestly. I would like to know. I still have 2.5 weeks till the hubs gets home and he is planning on only needing one good moving day to get all out of here. PUH!!! Maybe I should ask him what the natives are giving him up there to alter his ability to think rationally...

Cause I would like some too.

p.s.-the wet pb i'm talking about is the dirty knife sitting in the sink, and Bajios is the best Mexican food you will ever eat
Pin It!

Bless your heart, you might as well laugh as to cry. So glad you were able to find a place suitable to the educational needs as well as you personal desires. Much love to all.

Have you run out of your duck tape already? Creative parenting, Meggs. That and Benadryl. That way when you put them to bed they go to bed and that's when you get stuff done.

I like the way Undaunted thinks! Play the "packing" game, and pack her in one of the boxes with some holes in it. I promise, she'll love it...but only for 47 seconds. I have no good answers except to just barrel through, blog about it, and then look back and laugh really hard when it's her and her kids!

Ha! Wow, motherhood sounds like there's never a dull moment! That is really exciting about the move and the school sounds great! Good luck with moving!
