Last One

Little Prince went back to school today.  He had a great day.  Since the girls were home without him for a day, I decided to let them have a spa day with some of my lotions and potions.  They loved that.  Afterwards, we watched movies and they had popcorn.   It was a fun last day home sick.

Yummy Fun

Since the kids are still home sick from school, we are continuing our fall fun follow- along.  Today was have fruits and vegetables as a snack.  It was a huge hit.

And we had a new food for Little!  He was eating baby carrots!  It was learning experience for him to manage such a crunchy food, but he liked it.

Fall Fun

My kids still have a cold and are staying home from school.  This week the elementary school has fall fun week.  So, Princess Snifflefritz decided that her and Little Prince would follow along and do as much ad we can at home.  Today was dress in fall colors.

All is well in the house of the sick. The kids are not feeling well, but they are in good spirits.  I am rested and feeling fine.  I even managed to get some extra laundry done today.

I actually had 8 1/2 hours sleep last night.  I feel amazing!  My babies are all sick with a cold, so I expect we will have a longer weekend than everyone else.

I actually did that

I actually fell asleep after supper, sitting in my chair.  I never do that.  But, after a week of 5-6 hour nights of sleep, I guess I needed it.  I get to have 7 hours tonight, if I fall asleep right away.

Little Prince was home sick from school today.  He was surprisingly cheerful all day.  He was really sweet.

Little Prince got sent home from school today.  He has the sniffles.  I had no issue with them sending him home to be safe.  I had to laugh though because when I signed him out early, every kid sent home today had the sniffles. I really hope our area keeps its Covid free status because given how quickly the sniffles spread through the school I have little hope that they could contain Covid-19.  I mean this is an elementary school there is only so much they can expect from small kids.

It is funny, every night I find myself counting down the hours until I take Prince Charming to work so that I can go to sleep.  These 18-19 hour days are LONG.

Sep 21, 2020

Feeling it.

I am so exhausted.  Late night driving Prince Charming to work, and early morning activities getting up with the kids has me so tired.  I will get used to it, I am feeling my age right now.

Well, it was a lovely weekend and we are running around getting things ready for school tomorrow.  Spelling is studied.  Clothes are getting picked out.  Kids are getting bathed.  Backpacks are lined up by the door and snacks are ready for recess.

Happy Saturday

Our routine has been changed since Prince Charming has started work.  I am a little tired, but doing okay. 

Princess Snifflefritz had an assignment to have some fun and dance and send a copy in to her teacher. She had so much fun!  And, she got a get out of homework free card for it!

It was a lovely day today.  My kids had good days in school, and I took it easy.  I didn't get much sleep last night, so I chose to relax a little today, and that was lovely.

Sep 16, 2020

Good news!

It is late and I am tired,  but I wanted to come on here and tell you guys.  Prince Charming got a job!!!  I am  beyond thrilled! Yay!

We had a good day today. The kids all had great days
  Little Prince actually ate some food and I tackled a little bit of the cleaning I wanted to get at.  Little by little I will get some things accomplished.  My headache was even tolerable!

Sep 14, 2020


I had a headache all day today, and I had anxiety after I dropped the kids off at school, but they each had a good day.  That makes me feel better.  My head is still aching but at least I can relax.

Sep 13, 2020


It was a quiet weekend of cleaning rooms and enjoying the peace and quiet.  My kids rooms look better than they have in a while.  And, maybe this week I will give the mommy  top-up clean.

In the meantime, here's hoping for a good week.

Mommy will

Every day when I pick up Little Prince after school, he gets into the van announcing that, "Mommy will make french fries."  It is too cute.  He is hungry and he is very confident that ad long as he reminds me every five minutes until we get home, I will indeed make him french fries.

My Girl

Princess Snifflefritz left for school with the utmost enthusiasm.  She was excited for her second day of Grade Six.

Unfortunately, she had a rough day.  Some kids were mean and made her cry.  She is feeling better about things now, but I am sad.

Update, she spoke to one of her friends and she is feeling better.

Little Prince was super anxious to go to school today. He hopped out of bed at 6 o'clock and demanded to go to school. We dragged it out as much as possible, but he insisted on leaving really early. I decided to go get a coffee on the way to school. We left in such a hurry, that I forgot to take 1st day of school pictures for Princess Snifflefritz. So, we agreed that we would take 2nd day of school picture for her tomorrow. Bad mommy moment!

Here's a picture her teacher took:

Back to School

Princess Magpie started Junior High today.  I was nervous for her, but she had a good day.

Little Prince started Grade Two.  I was terrified he would have a rough time adjusting to being back in school, but he had a wonderful first day.

Sep 8, 2020


I spent about six hours driving today.  We went into Grand Falls - Windsor for Princess Snifflefritz to see an ear specialist.  We were told she has a smsll perforation of the ear drum.  We were offered several options but we think we are going with the permanent solution, surgery.  It is a quick fix that will take care of everything. 

I have to say, it has been a long day, and I am exhausted.

Sep 7, 2020


I finally got through sorting the kids' clothes.  It was a BIG job, but I have a massive pile of things to donate.  Every thing that is left is unstained and fits.  They each have enough clothes for school.  I  am so glad.

I have to take Princess Snifflefritz to the doctor tomorrow.   It is a long drive and I hope it goes well.

Sorting and Purging

Today was a good day. The weather was perfect. I got start Sorting out the girls' clothes. They have a LOT for me to go through. I will be interested in seeing how much they have left after I am done. LOL

I will never understand my boy's love for the rain.   He simply loves to be in it.  My mommy instincts say to protect him.   But how can I keep him from something that brings him this much joy.

Sep 3, 2020


Princess Magpie went out shopping today with my sister in law.  She had a wonderful time.  She came home excited, full of enthusiasm and joy.  It made this momma's heart happy.

I got a call today that my dad fell again.  He fell yesterday and it occurred to him that nobody thought to call me.  Which they didn't. 

Sep 1, 2020


I got a lot done today.  And, I am really pleased with how the budgeting went.  I did manage to get the kids school supplies, and to get them lunch bags and back packs that they love.  So, it was a good day.
