We had yet another snow day today, this is our second one in two weeks. Snow days mean that Little Andrew stays home from school while Adam and Jack are only on a one hour delay. Early head start has to offer a specific number of days of school per year, hence the delay instead of cancellation.
Before knowing about the snow day, I had every intention to deep clean different rooms of my house since I would be home alone for six hours. Then I got the phone call about the cancellation and had to re-assess. Since Andrew is my oldest kid, he’s pretty good at entertaining himself. I decided that I would work on at least one room and if I got that done, then that would be enough. Since I’ve been single momming for seven months now, I’ve come to realize that I can’t do everything in one day. Accomplishing small things in one day has been satisfying.
This morning, I decided I would get the boys breakfast and ready for school, take Adam and Jack to school, then come home and figure out what cleaning I would get done today. On the way home from dropping the boys off, Andrew told me that he’d like to play with the Pokemon figurines he got for his birthday the year before last (found on Amazon here). Since they’re very small, he’s not able to play with them much when his brothers are around so I figured it was a good idea. When we got home, he played with his Pokemon while I drank an iced coffee (I drink the 2X energy found on Amazon) and figured out what I wanted to get done today.
That’s when I walked through Adam and Andrew’s bedroom to go brush my teeth (our house has a very weird set up) and realized that it looked like a tornado blew through. So Andrew and I did some learning (handwriting, sight words flash cards, and Spanish flash cards), watched Hercules, made lunch, then went to clean their room. It only took us about an hour to completely get rid of the trash, put the toys and books away, and vacuum. Having their room spotless is such a big relief and it makes me want to clean more every day.
