Today was one of those busy run around days but with fun. I always enjoy doing the “gloop’ lab with my students (see the picture above). If you’ve never made gloop and played around with it do it!
My daughter no longer takes naps at school which means sometimes she’s so tired she falls asleep in the car on the way home, then you pick her up and she stays asleep on the couch. I don’t mind her taking a late nap as she falls asleep pretty easy around 8pm at night even with a nap.
The challenge comes these days as how to wake her up. She’s such a good sleeper and sleeps so deeply that if you wake her up instead of her waking up she wakes up disoriented. Then we end up with a 45 minute melt down. New tactics involve just getting her dressed in pj’s or taking her to bed. She usually decides she wants to wake up but, sometimes she just sleeps the entire time and wakes up around 6 am. not a problem for me.
By the time i arrived home around 6:30 pm i was exhausted!
But i am realizing from my logging activities that i need to prepare my food at night and start working on meal planning. No more purchasing of food.
