This is Fuzzy Bear. He was
my Pollito's homework for the weekend. As the kindergarten "Star of the Week" he had the privilege of bringing this cuddly little bear home and hanging out with him. It was MY homework to bring him along everywhere we went and write about our "adventures" in his (the Bear's) travel journal. How I wish I had the interest and energy to do this. I faked it. Pollito was happy.
The rest of our weekend was relaxing. I took the kids to a Halloween party at one of the universities who host this every year. Lots of candy, games, crafts and activities. They got to wear their costumes and had a grand time. They each handled it remarkably well and I was quite grateful since C. couldn't join us because she was on her way out of town again. We came home exhausted, ordered Chinese food, and had a picnic in the family room. Tortuga was able to manage the stimulation, togetherness and family time with very little redirection. I am so very proud of him. He got it together after Saturday's challenges which I need to write about but don't have the energy right now.
Today hasn't been so good for any of us. Milagro is clingy and whiney (rare for her), Pollito seems to have issues remembering just about everything, Tortuga seems to think he doesn't have to follow rules, routines or expectations since C. is away and Corazon is just one unregulated mess. To top it off I have a short fuse today and the kids have been setting it off quite easily. Not my best parenting day.
