Weekend Review

Givin' some goats love at the farm

Givin' some goats love at the farm

The weekend started out bleeck (our way of spelling Bleak, a spin on our last name Bleecker) Staci had a class she had to take on saturday from 8 am – 4 pm and I was going to take that opportunity to go visit my folks with the kids but then I found out the Recumbent Stationary Bike I ordered from Amazon (what a deal, free shipping and it came in 4 days!) was going to arrive from 9 am – 2:00 pm…but I convinced my parents to come here instead. Which was good because the bike came and my dad was able to put it together in a jiffy. But Carter was slowly going downhill with this cold he has. His asthma kicked in and he was all wheezy…I tried to get Zoe down for her 10 am nap…just as I did that the damned bike was delivered…so downstairs I run with two kids…try to keep them out of the way…and then help the delivery guys get in the house…I turn around and Carter has locked the screen door (the storm window is closed on the screen door too)…and I am on the front porch and both kids are in the house…I have a mini panic attack…and do a hostage negotiation type maneuver with Carter calmly telling him to turn the knob…trying to make it fun…lucky for me he did…so we get through that…I put Zoe to sleep…all is ok for a bit…she wakes up, and now it is Carters turn to sleep (yeah, they don’t sleep on the same nap schedule, great right?) just as I try to do that…my parents show up…ring the doorbell and the dogs bark, Carter wakes up and is freaking out…gets himself all riled up and then coughs like crazy…annnnnnddddd Barfs all over his crib, the floor, himself…and I am thinking, “Seriously, is this child trying to kill me today?” He cries harder because there is curdled milk vomit all over his feet…now I have to wash his feet, strip the bed, clean the floor, put new sheets on and try to get him back to sleep…

The day seemed to last forever…today was a better day…the kids slept in…a whopping 8 am! Carter felt better. We started out the morning trying him in some big boy underwear for a bit…so while we ran around the house he ran around in his Thomas the Train undies…it was the cutest thing…And then we headed out to the Family Farm in Grafton…it was a cloudless sky day, and there were only abut 4 families at the farm today…it was unheard of! We fed goats, took a hay ride…played on farm equipment, played in a silo and rounded out the day with a trip to Costco…its amazing how much stuff we ended up buying there for the kids. We came home, played with some foam blocks and other interactive toys we bought and then it was bed time. One new thing they had a Costco was frozen veggie puree in tubs like those freezee pops come in…so you can hide puree in things like spaghetti sauce, Mac & Cheese…genius! I have been wanting to do that, but who has time to make damned puree?

We survived another weekend…and I can’t wait until the next one…pictures from the farm to come tomorrow…
