so excited! (ot)

Our daycare is finally working out well enough to have some spends and I'm buying a little treadmill!! I cannot wait to get back in shape like I was doing when I was living in England. Biggrin Though, Michael's is across the street from where I'm going so I hope I don't veer off and buy a Cricut instead. ROFL
After this all our "spends" has to go on saving to go to England in July for hubby's niece's wedding, so this is a one lump sum of a treat Biggrin

GL on sticking to the treadmill idea. Wink I am very glad to hear you are doing so well in your daycare. That's awesome! It was very hard for me, but that's just me.

Sadie I'm sure you were great at what you did. Just circumstances can get in the way.....
a big part of it is that Wayne has been able to be a part of it all. We thought we'd hear a few snarky remarks about "a guy" being at the daycare (and I'm sure some did behind our backs) but 4 of our 6 kids have no dad around and the moms have said they like having wayne as an influence on their kid's lives Smile Plus, I don't know what it's like where you live but here there is a massive shortage of childcare available. That worked in our favor. lol

Yay for the treadmill. You should look in the classifieds for a deal and use the leftover money for scrapbooking supplies!

Karen, that is wonderful. You should come over and join us at the next BLC challenge. It is fun to have a support group. The next one starts in March.

I'm glad to hear the daycare is going well. It sounds wonderful that he can help. It is always so much better having a "teammate" to help and support. I'm sure those kids are really benefitting from a positive male role model. Even those with dads at home sometimes lack a lot of quality time with him. I think that is wonderful.

Thanks. I appreciate the kind words!

I was at home, with too many imo. It was hard. Randall didn't enjoy me doing it (b/c I was almost depressed), and neither did Ruthie, so here I am. I am thankful that Wayne is there to help you out, and be an amazing role model in those children's lives. That's awesome. He deserves a big pat on the back. A lot of men don't care to help when it comes to stuff like that and that says a lot about him! Biggrin Randall helped me out when he was home, but I always felt guilty b/c it was his day off.
