Home at last

Ok. So we’ve been home since Thursday night, but this is the first chance I’ve had to sit down at the computer and actually write a blog. Things have been in a whirlwind since we got here and I’m having to readjust to being ‘mommy’ full time.

We made the trip home in a little less than 6 hours, despite traffic delays and only one potty break {Yep. Just one. Yay me!} Little Man greeted us in a state of shock. He couldn’t seem to grasp the fact that we were actually there. Took him about 4 hours or so to readjust to us. He still wanted Grandmamma for nearly everything. The Mother in law had a home-cooked meal prepared for us when we got here {Chicken Casserole, Fried Okra, and Mac & Cheese} so we didn’t even have to fool with finding supper.

Apparently Little Man had been sleeping in a toddler bed the entire time he’s been here. A toddler bed with no rails that he can just climb out of. And supposedly he was sleeping soundly, all night long. Not Thursday night. He woke up at 12:30 and came walking into mine and hubby’s room and wouldn’t go back to bed. Seriously. I could not get him to get back in the bed and go to sleep. Every time I laid him down, he’d climb out of the bed, open the door and come back in our room. Hubby’s mom finally had to get up and put him back down because he wouldn’t stay for me. Then he was up before 7 am yesterday morning and wouldn’t nap at all…all day long.

Yesterday was a long day, but things are starting out better today. The readjustment time is killer. I have to get back into my mommy mindset and Little Man definitely needs the time to readjust himself to the way things work when Mommy and Daddy are around. He’s done great though from what I hear. Well behaved and comical, as is his usual. Managed to get him to lay down for a nap this morning, so hopefully this afternoon he will be willing to cooperate when we go out visiting.

I got everything unpacked and situated {finally}. All of our clothes are hung and folded and put away. The closet looks like it is going to cave in because of all of the stuff everywhere. All of hubby’s clothes, my clothes and Little Man’s clothes are hanging in one closet, and all of our fold up clothes are snuggled up into 4 dresser drawers. It’s kind of funny to be honest. We’ll have a little bit more room after Hubby goes to school so it’s not that big of a deal.

He’s got all of his school clothes laid out and getting ready to be dry cleaned and a few things need to be hemmed and stitched. But everything, except for his new work boots, is here and waiting to be shoved into that hideous green sea bag. I’m on strict orders [ok, well maybe not ‘orders’] not to discuss school right now. We’re going to enjoy our time together for the next two weeks and let that be it. Hubby is taking me to see both of the Nicholas Sparks movies that are out {Dear John and The Last Song} and we’re thinking of heading down to the beach next weekend. We shall see.

Is everyone ready for Easter?

We’re not. Not even close. I picked Little Man up a few small things Thursday morning in Florida for his Easter Basket. But Daddy was so excited to see him that he couldn’t wait until tomorrow to give him his stuff. So now I have to start all over and restock his basket. Not that he really understands what’s going on and all of that, but still. We’re going to dye Easter Eggs at some point today and Hubby & I have both got to go find something to wear to church tomorrow. He has khakis and shoes, but no shirt. And I have nothing to wear. Period. I haven’t bought a whole lot of new clothes recently because it hasn’t been warm enough to wear any of the summer stuff that they had on the shelves.

Anywho. Little Man is up from his nap and he’s got to have a bath. Hope everyone has a great weekend and a wonderful Easter! I’ll be back on Tuesday, but be sure to watch for the guest posts coming starting on MONDAY!!
