A New Day!
Woke feeling miserable this morning. Got the kids up at 6 and slept until 6:25 then gave Tommy his medicine. After getting the kids off I came home to sleep some more but mostly laid in bed listening to Amy play over the intercomm. An hour later or so she started to ask for Dada so I went upstairs and we sat on the couch together and watched television and she wrestled some. After Cathy woke I returned to a deep sleep for 2.5 hours. I can feel my body fighting something and winning.
It was Cathy’s birthday and of course I went upstairs with intention of reminding the kids but I forgot and they went the whole day without saying anything to their mother. Poverty and stress kept me from making her special day anything special at all.
In the evening Tommy stayed home to watch a movie while Cathy and Sarah did some mall shopping and Noah, Amy and I went to a muddy soccer field to have practice cancelled. We all ended up gathering at IHOP minus Tommy. This disturbed Noah greatly, “I wanted Tommy to come.” So Noah and I had one of those conversations about decisions and consequences and making choices.
Later a naked Amy was sitting on Tommy during reading time and peed on him. He reacted but for Tommy it wasn’t altogether that bad a reaction.
Sarah and I watched a movie on the Mayan pyramids as an extra credit assignment then I realized we missed Smallville! Ugh! Got to spend some time with Cathy after the kids went to bed.
