A New Day!
Amy woke at 4:30 or so and Cathy brought her to the bed where she tossed and turned and talked. The dog pooped on the papers and I could hear Amy with these exaggerated “sniff, sniff”s through her nose. It was two loud distinct sniffs. Then a pause. Repeat. Finally she said, “ew! Molly pooped!” It was quite humorous! I finally gave up and put her in the crib where she complained until she fell asleep.
It took skill to get my clothes and belongings out without disturbing Amy. Somehow I didn’t disturb her despite clanging trash cans, loud beeping phones and muttering under my breath.
The dog was getting aggitated at being locked in the bedroom so rather than risk having her wake Amy I let her upstairs. I figured she had done her business but to be safe when I got upstairs I’d cage her. Too late. I get upstairs and a pile of mush is in the bathroom with dog pee streaming under the bathroom cabinet.
Told Tommy he was on his own and went downstairs to iron. He must have gotten dressed as I heard him leave for the bus. Never saw what he looked like or what he carried off with him.
Took the others to their respective bus stops. Found out that Sarah left one of Amy’s juice cups at the bookfair but another child saw her set it down and had the wherewithall to pick it up for us.
Today will be a miracle if I don’t have a break down.
