Once Upon a Time, I had a blog. . . . . when my kids were still in preschool, kindergarten & elementary school. These are "diary entries" from then. I'm so happy that I documented along the way. These memories and thoughts are precious to me. They'll be mixed in with modern day musings as well. I hope it helps you know that all mothers are both perfect & imperfect in their own ways. . . . . and we're all just doing our best and trying to raise productive, happy humans.

The Builder's New Loft

Dear Diary ~~ February 7, 2011.  This is funny because that loft has taken a beating in the last 7 years, but it's still standing!  And my kids were so small here!

This weekend, I wanted to be able to spend a little time by myself to finish up some cleaning so that I could start fresh with my new binder today.  But, I just couldn't seem to find my motivation on Saturday!  But, I did get a couple hours alone to myself.  So, that was nice. 

My husband and my kids went ice-skating.  My son will be starting official ice-skating lessons tonight.  He had been doing Karate, but the teacher yelled a lot and scared him.  So, when his semester was up, we let him quit.  It was a tough, tough decision for my husband and me.  But, in the end we decided that it just wasn't right for a teacher to yell so much and scare the heck out of a 6 year old.  Which is funny, because we left the last Karate place because the teacher didn't pay enough attention to him. 

My husband had been planning on making a Loft in my son's room for a while now.  He was supposed to do it for his last birthday, which was April.  He finally did it yesterday!  I know my son is excited!  Here it is!!!  Please ignore the rest of the mess.  : )
