Saturday morning Meag took Tym to Gymnastics while I went to the new house and put in new light plates and see what needed to be done. After gmnastics there was no nap to think of ( she slept in a little bit) - so lunch then packed her suitcase for her first sleep over ever!
Christa and Abby came to pick her up at 2 - until Sunday morning!! Oh my! She we packed up her suitcase... As we were getting her bundled up she looked backk and said "Mummy and mama come sleep over to!" it was so heart breaking! But she was fine when we told her we would meet her for breakfast. Off they went.
The second they headed out the door - we got our huge shopping list and hit the stores. We bought a lovely brand new stove - yay for equal payments no interest :) We then hit Canadian tire, Ikea and Home Depot. We have window coverings, lights, cleaning stuff and hopefully most everything we will need for the new house.
A quick stop at home to change and off to Laura''s birthday party. That girl knows how to throw a party!
Meag called Christa to see how things went - and they had a great time. Tym was amazed that Christa has nipples.. And thought she had breastmilk for Pancake (their cat.. HhhrrrrmMmmm no.
Home for a sleep... But wait... the house was errily empty! We almost wanted to turn the monitor on so that it was ''normal''.
Of course Tym slept like she NEVER sleeps for us! Fell asleep at 8 - and Christa called at 7:30 - she was still sleeping!!! I told her to wake her up... I was somewhat anticipating her freak out to be in the morning, waking up without us... However she just snuggled in and jumped at the chance of feeding the cats and the fish. Strolled into the diner for breakfast like there was nothing different.
Our big girl!
After breakfast we were switching the car seat over again, and Tym was giving the girls a hig and kiss bye - and she looked at Christa totally unprompted and said "Thanks for having me over guys". It was so sweet!!
Off home we went - and we tagged teamed at the new place all day cleaning. The windows were black. The bathrooms were... well - much better now!
Yesterday no nap was had again! Go figure since she got up SO late! No nap Tym = Crazy Tym. Come supper time and after she was bouncing off the walls. it was crazy. She wasn''t to tired - but she was wired for sound. We are not sure if we like NO Nap Tym... However, lastnight, she fell asleep in 3 minutes... which we haven''t had the past month or so... give and take right?
Tonight I''m going to clean the kitchen. We have decided we will never move into a place that has been smoked in again - unless they get heavy duty cleaners to come in.
Wednesday I will be over there all day waiting for the fridge and stove delivery. And I will paint Tym''s room... Of all rooms to paint before we move in, her''s is the winner!
It will be wonderful when the move in done. anyone that wants to come help thursday night, friday or sat are more then welcome!! :)
Well the house is on its way to being healthy - again! Tym''s yeast infection and conjunctivitis have both cleared up. Though I think she''s a little dissapointed in the lack of cooch cream from her morning routine! And it seems that my cold is on its way out. Geesh what a goss 10 days we''ve had. Just in time though, better to get it all done now and be health for the move next week. YIKES! Next week already. Tym is still quite excited about it and is handling the insuing current choatic state of our house very well. Deah''s getting the keys 3 days early so we can drop a couple of bleach bombs in there (it''s REALLY dirty)and get Tym''s room painted. It''ll also make moving alot easier and we can start bringing stuff over Tuesday night and just slowly plow away at it.
Tym meanwhile is doing fabulously at day care. I walk her in in the morning and she immediatly announces her arrival to everyone: "I''m here guys" and than is off like a shot with barely a "bye Mummy". And to think - I was worried.
Current morning routine:
Eye Goop put on
Nose cream put on
Lips cream put on
Cooch cream put on.
It sure will be good when the sick has left the building!
I brought Tym to the clinic again yesterday - we noticed Sunday that her bum area was red and angry looking. It''s what I suspected - Yeast Infection. Not sure if it''s the eye antibiotics, or what, but it''s angry. Canestin Cream and lots of yogurt!
Of course this morning she''s congested then before and said her throat was sore.... I should have gotten her swabbed for Strep yesterday, but she said it wasn''t sore... I hope another visit isn''t needed.
Another busy weekend on our side. Friday night we packed some more. Saturday Tym and I went to Gymnastics. She sure does love it! Then to have a latte and snack with Mummy on a break.
Saturday afternoon she napped for a long time - someone came and picked up our filing cabinet - the last of the purge before we move. And I surprised Meag with tickets to go see Bon Jovi! It took me about 3 minutes to convince her we were actually going. Meghan was nice enough to offer to babysit so I got tickets :) The concert was amazing! There is something to be said for rearview seats! :)
Sunday was a quick breakfast out - then headed to the new house to measure the windows and bring some of the backyard stuff over. It was nice to try and picture where our things are going to be. Tym has her room picked out and is ready to move :) Back home to pack a little more. A quick trip to Rainbow Foods to get some homeopathics for Tym''s now runny nose. And meag cooked us a lovely chicken dinner :)
Less then 2 weeks before we move!!! It will be nice to have it done. It''s crazy - since we have something scheduled every weekend until after xmas!
I took Tym to the clinic yesterday... Since starting Daycare last week - she has had massive dry cracked lips due to playing outside and stuff... which has lead to some acne type spots on her face from her rubbing everything... Yesterday morning when she woke up, she could hardly open her eyes due to all the goop that was there... So I brought her in the get her eyes looked at, considering the amount of sickness that was in the house this week!
She has a small eye infection, just drops for the next few days and she should be OK - the puffiness and the goop has already gone down with only 1 application last night...
So we are all on the mend!! We are running against a huge timeline with getting things done for the move... But it will all work out :)
The house is full of sickness and unwell. Deah and I both have strep throat and it looks like Tym may be getting chicken pox. Deah''s taking her to the clinic tonight. I think I''ll just naplam the house on Sunday and we can start all over again!
Tym is now doing full days at Preschool. I picked her up on Wednesday at 3:30 - she had a fun morning - but didn''t enjoy the afternoo as much - had a hard time sleeping and such. SHe started crying when she seen me - probably a little worried that she was going to Tasha and I was leaving again.. But we went and got the bus and she was ok once we were home and settled in.
Yesterday was considerably better when picking her up at 4 - she started to cry just a little bit - but stopped by the time we got her stuff to go home... Much better.
And I am sure today she will have a good time and won''t have a hard time this afternoon.
She was totally fine yesterday. She had a great time. When I went into the room she was playing and had to be called to see that I was there... Then ran to me with arms outstretched. It was awesome :) They said she had a great time. Enjoyed circle time and playing outside.
The rough part was then taking her to Natasha''s.. Since I was picking her up, she wanted to go home with me.. But once she was there, again no problem.
this morning when Meag dropped her off - she didn''t even get a kiss - Tym rushed right off to play with toys and just said bye.
So I''m sitting at work.
I just dropped Tym off at DayCare. In a big room, with people I don''t know and other kids I''ve never met.
But there was fish - and I hardly got a kiss and hug.
11:30 won''t come soon enough for me to go get her and see how her morning was!
Halloween was a hit yesterday. It was slow going.. We picked her up a little early and headed right to venus envy - Christa wanted to see her and got her presents... so we went - and Tym wasn''t so sure what was suppose to happen - until she ended up with 14 full sheets of stickers in her bag!!!
Then we came home for supper - it was a fight to get her back into the costume - but to go outside with Oscar, she did it. After watching Oscar with house number 1- she was a pro and beat him to a few hours. After 30 minutes she started to get a little tired, so Meag carried her and we started heading home. Once home - she didn''t want to go in. More houses mummy, more houses! So out they went for another 20 minutes while I dooled out candy.
Once home Tym officially had her first peice of Halloween candy = and box of smarties she picked. 3rd time tricking, first treat :)
On other news we had orientation at daycare yesterday - everything is a go for Monday morning.
