Foodie Friday

Hey All!  I’ve sort of been MIA for a while…my apologies!  Quite honestly, I’m just trying to keep up with every day things lately and haven’t had much time to write, much less cook a decent meal for my family.  It’s been a lot of what’s in the freezer that will un-thaw quickly kind of meals.


We are almost done with our first week at the new daycare.  Honestly, it’s been going pretty good, it’s just a lot to get used to.  There are certain things that are going to take me a long time to really like [one being the drive home], but in the end, I know this will allow me 1 extra day with my kids!  Score!


Hendrix loves the new place.  Well, he loves it anywhere that people hold & feed him 🙂  Dafney has adjusted surprisingly well.  She took to her new teacher like a Champ and has even been teaching them some songs that she learned at her old daycare.  She must like it as the first thing they said to me on Monday when I picked the kids up was “your daughter’s a talker“!  She sure is!

A Long Week Ahead

This is going to be an emotional week.  I’m not prepared & have every intention of shedding some tears come Friday.  Why?  We are leaving our current daycare [which we LOVE] and heading to a new place.  I know, not many people leave a daycare that they love, but we have some reasons.  We thought long and hard about this decision and even included Dafney.  Though she knows she’s leaving her current place and going to the “orange school”, I don’t think she even remotely understands what that means.

I worry for her.

I’m sad.  It will be so hard to leave the familiar faces we see each day.  We’ve gotten to know everyone so well and everyone has treated us so nicely over the past 3 years.  In a way, they’re kind of like family.  A part of me is so torn up inside because let’s face it, change is scary.  I wish things could stay the same [forever & ever], but that’s just not realistic.
