BUSY BUSY BUSY...

I don't know how many times I need to repeat the word to truly convey how I feel these days;

I love being busy; but I think these days I'm so so so so so busy, that I don't even have time to enjoy all this busy-ness...

The daycare that we've waitlisted for over 2 yrs finally called last week. There's nothing special about it, it's just that it's a facility in the proximity of my work area, AND it's half the price of all other facilities...so I was super excited when they called.

I was super excited, but DH wasn't; he's been putting a guilt trip on me..telling me how young DD is, she doesn't need to go to school, he enjoys taking care of her at home, we're spending money when we dont' need to... yada yada...

Of course, I filtered out all that, and attended registration myself..found out DD needed closed-toe shoes, and b4 I knew it, I was on a shoe hunt...she's got a bunch of hand-me-down sandles from her cousins, but only 1 pair of closed-toe shoes...after much research, I wanted to try See Kai Run and Livie & Luca...b4 I realized it, I had bought her 5 more pairs of shoes! I think I've been on shoe diet for too long...all this time, thinking she can wear all those hand-me-downs til her feet stops growing..as kid shoes are so expensive! And they out-grow 'em so fast!

Well, I recently read some where that it's not good to wear hand-me-down shoes bec new shoes can help shape a kid's feet. hand-me-downs have already been molded to another kid's feet and therefore won't be as healthy for whoever gets it next...now that scared me...

well, 5 pairs of brand new See Kai Runs later, I STILL don't know what size DD wears! she's essentially a 6 right now, but I fear she would out-grow 'em, so I bought 7s and 8s, and they turn out WAY too big...then I ordered 2 more 6's and found out they're JUST RIGHT, which means in a month or two they won't fit any more! Oh, the dilemma...

Well, after all that prep work, 1 week of daycare, and we came down to...a FEVER! I didn't expect her to catch those germs so fast...I knew it was coming, but was hoping it would be 3 or so weeks later...

After a whole weekend of rest, and 2 extra days, I dropped her off again today; as expected, the crying, shirt-pulling scene replayed itself again this morning...why, oh why don't kids wanna go to school? Every morning I would wake up extra early, pack, get things ready, get myself all exhausted, and then be faced with much guilt and trauma at the drop off station...oh, how I learn to better appreciate our parents now...

This has been a long post...mainly wanted to get the pressure off my chest...

To be continued...
