I have 6 more days left in my blog challenge and although I have a blog calendar I don’t have anything prepped for today’s post. And by today I actually mean yesterday. And by prepped I mean have my talking points or pictures ready. I definitely will be going back to my 3 day a week posting scheduling after this challenge is over. Not sure what I was thinking when I thought I could do 5 days a week of blogging (I remember my teacher saying that even 4 days a week of blogging is not easy). But it’s a goal I set for myself and I intend to meet it. So today’s post is more of a #DiaryEntry.

Yesterday was the mister’s MBA convocation. (If you need ideas on how to spend solo parenting time with your kid you can read this). At first Miss S didn’t want to attend because she was going to have water play day at her preschool. I was a little sad but also relieved because having her miss a celebration of her father’s achievement would be disappointing but keeping a toddler quite and still for 2 hours would not be easy. However because the forecast for the day was raining she had decided that she didn’t want to go to preschool and would attend the graduation ceremonies. Luckily, I had 2 sets of grandparents to help! …All went well except when both kids wanted me to hold them LOL. Thank goodness for my sling and strong arms :)
we I had early wake up calls (thanks to our #HumanAlarmClocks). Brought the older one to our bed and she played with my hair and back so I could sleep for another 20 minutes. Managed to get her ready for the day (bathroom, dressed, breakfast and play time) and write in my journal before the baby woke up. We let the new grad sleep in 1.5 hours more before I made the toddler wake him up :)
This evening we are heading out to my parents house for a belated Father’s Day BBQ.
Hope everyone is having a wonderful Saturday.
