Mother's Day Out Monday

Today Lucas started going to Mother's Day Out.  Last year he attended the same program at the same church, but this year he has a new room and new teachers, so he was a little bit nervous.  Scratch that.  He was a lot nervous.  This little guy is a Mama's Boy through and through.  He is like my shadow at home and he's a snuggler too.  It was tempting to keep him home this fall, but my dad offered to pay for him to attend one day a week, so I decided to keep it up.  By the end of the year last year, he was walking right in to his class with a big smile on his face.  I totally forgot to take any pictures of the big day, sad to say. Just know I was juggling a diaper bag, a lunch box, a blanket, and a very clingy little boy who was not in the mood for a photo.  In fact, his face looked a little bit like this....
Only he had big tears rolling down his cheeks and he was saying, "Mama!  Daddy!  Mama!  Daddy!"  It was sad.  But when I picked him up, he was happy and smiling.  His teacher said he only cried about two minutes after we left, then he played and was "very sweet" all day long. 

So for me, Mondays will be my one day of the week where I don't have any kids and I don't have any commitments.  I'm planning on using the day to: 1.) Catch up on housework, 2.) Catch up on laundry, 3.) Grocery shop, or 4.) All of the above.

OR....if all of those things are under control, then Mondays can be my sit-in-a-chair-with-a-cup-of-tea-and-a-book day.  Or since Mike works from home, we could have a  lunch date on Mondays and go out to eat together to enjoy uninterrupted conversation!  We could try all of those not-kid-friendly places we've been wanting to try....

Okay, I'm starting to really like Mondays!

first, that is about the saddest little face I've ever seen. second, there will always be laundry, housework and cleaning. i think you should ALWAYS put at the top of your Monday list: spend some self time reading a book/have a date with my husband (whether it be lunch or a walk in the neighborhood). then once those are completed you can proceed to do laundry and whatever else is needed!! =) Monday's sound like they are going to be a good day to start the week with!
