So, this week I have my nephew, C, all week! :) It is the first time he's ever stayed more than 2 days with me. That is awesome. So, my Motivate Me Monday thought is how I'm going handle two of everything this week?!
C is 9 years old and he is going to basketball camp this week. Actually, it is half day basketball and half day sports camp... Lil M is in daycare (DC) still, of course. Which means I have to drive to two different locations in the morning before work and to pick them both up after work.
Yesterday I made a whole pot of pinto beans (sans meat), and so I figure dinner is covered for at least a couple of days this week. But I do need to go to the store today to get a few extra items for us. Like bread and lunch meat. Dinners ideas for this week, so far: spaghetti, beans/rice, burritos, turkey-meatloaf, and probably chicken and noodles.
I don't have to make Lil M's lunches, but I do have to have something for C to take each day. So, gotta plan that. I already wrote down 5 dinner ideas for us. Today I will make up 4 more days worth of lunch stuff (except actually making the sandwiches).
I've got some paints and playdo that I think I will let the kiddos play with tonight! C wants to go to the park, and I've already talked to my friend MK about dinner... So, I figure I've got at least 3 days worth of fun stuff planned for us.
This doesn't include bath times, teeth brushing, the dogs...but I guess it's got me motivated today to try to keep up with everything this week. I just hope his basketball/sports camp goes well. He seemed to think it was cool this morning. So, let's see!
And it's got me wondering how having two would be in the long-term...
