Mom's taxi for hire . . .

I LOVE BEING A STAY AT HOME MOM . . .
 That being said, I never knew that the stay at home part doesn't last very long after school starts. Activities, sports, speech, and play dates keep us pretty busy.  That is all pretty much by my choosing.  I love to be busy, if I have nothing to do I will go crazy, spend money, not clean the house, and look for projects to start.  So I run our schedule packed with things to do with the littlest amount of time in between  . . . efficiency!!

 I have been very lucky to stay at home with the crazies.  If I would have had to work Brady and Rylee would not have gotten all the help they have needed with speech.  Speech and school are a given, sports on the other had, totally optional.  Chris and I would like them to be involved in sports, it makes for a well rounded kid, hopefully teaches them team work, and responsibility and gets them out of the house and out from in front of the screen. Rylee is doing kindergarten, soccer and dance and girl scouts and Brady is doing preschool twice a week, T-ball and speech.  I never thought that doing these simple activities would put me in the car as much as it does!  

Rylee doesn't go full day yet and gets out at 1. As great as that sounds, I am ready for her to go all day and not for the reasons you might think ;)  It might free up a little time in the middle and I might learn how to make dinner in advanced! Chris would be very happy . . . he is also being VERY supportive of me trying to navigate our new schedule and coming home to no home cooked meal (bad wife, good mom?). That needs to get straightened out pronto, must have equal balance!!  Before school, we used to do all our activites in the morning, but now with school we have all of our activites in the afternoon.

The mom taxi is in full effect!  Luckily we walk Rylee to and from school.  All the other places not so much. 


This is what a normal week looks like . . . by all means, I am not complaining this is all of my own choosing, crazy as it might be!!!  


Monday walk Rylee to school at 9 walk back get in the car to take Brady to speech at 10:30 wait in car for one hour while Brady does speech.  Back in car drive home, walk to pick up Rylee from school at 1

Tuesday we drive Brady to school before Rylee at 8:30 run out of his school to be back at the house and walk Rylee to school by 9.  With no children I am trying to play tennis with Sweeney for an hour. Drive back to pick Brady up at 11:30, drive home park and walk to pick up Rylee at 1.  Pray that both kids nap until 3:30 so we can then drive Rylee to dance.  Kill another hour in the car waiting for Rylee, drive home meet Chris at 6 dinner not made :(

Wednesday walk Rylee to school at 9 walk back get in the car drive to Mops where I get a little adult reflection time or have playdate with the neighbors.  Back in the car, drive home to walk and pick up Rylee.  Once again pray they nap but not to long so that I have to wake them up to take Brady to T-ball at 4!! 

Thursday drive Brady to school before Rylee at 8:30 run out of his school to be back at the house and walk Rylee to school by 9. I am beginning to love Thursday's because I get to help in Rylee's class while Brady is in school.  Leave at 11 to pick up Brady.  Soccer at 5 and home by 6

Friday walk Rylee to school at 9 walk back get in the car to take Brady to speech at 10:30 wait in car for one hour while Brady does speech. Back in car drive home, walk to pick up Rylee from school at 1.  Soccer clinic at 5 Wahoo's for dinner!!

Saturday . . . SOCCER GAME!!

Sunday  do anything but be in the CAR!!!

I am slowing loving the new sched but it also takes some getting used to.  Waiting in the car for pick up or speech and trying to keep Brady busy during soccer and dance is challenging but it is what it is and I'm happy that I can do it for my crazies!
I really do like being busy and if the kids like what they are doing and are happy doing it then I will buy a motor home and drive them around in that!!
