We had a really long day yesterday but it was a pretty good one. I took the boys walking in the morning and everyone had a great time. We saw the lonely duck and for the second time, it flew from across the park, landed a few feet from us and walked right up to Emmett.
This duck seems to have a thing for Emmett because the last time I had Emmett walking with me, it made a beeline from across the other side of the park, crossing the creek, hopping out and waddling right up to Emmett.
It’s a pretty unique experience and one that Emmett’s getting a big kick out of.
After the park, we made it home in time to get cleaned up, pick up Lizze and head out to my niece’s 1st birthday party. There were a ton of people there and for the most part, everyone did great. Gavin had a few issues but we all survived them and had a good time.
After the party, I took everyone to see Wonder Park. Elliott was the only one not too keen on seeing it but even he ended up enjoying himself. ☺
The rest of the night was relatively quiet. We had a few hiccups and by hiccups, of course I mean meltdowns. They were unpleasant but survivable and frankly, expected after a long day.
I had a terrible time trying to sleep last night and struggled until nearly 3 AM. I dont remember anything after that, until I woke up this morning.
Everyone’s a little in edge after such a busy day and I’m thinking about getting everyone out to Sippo Lake for a walk. It’s gorgeous outside and the fresh air might do us all some good. I’m not sure how much cooperation or even interest there is in going, but I think it’s a good move.
I’m in a less than stellar mood myself and I desperately want to shake it off. This is going to be an insanely stressful week for me and if I’m going to survive it, I need to get my shit together.
