Hating the school run

Im trying to think what's been going on around here since i last blogged.

-the inlaws have been and gone

-Caleb started nursery school. This was him on his first day. Every morning 9am - 11.30am. Sounds great but its actually a gigantic pain in the butt; getting them both up and ready and out the door, drive to the school, get the pram out to walk over, battle the elements (its forever windy and rainy), get him in and changed out his wellies (its forever windy and rainy), leave, battle the elements back to the car  (its forever windy and rainy), pack up the pram into the car, get home around 9.15am, deal/play with Aaron, do some chores, get Aaron ready to go again, leave at 11.15am,  drive to the school, get the pram out to walk over, battle the elements (its forever windy and rainy), get Caleb,  battle the elements back to the car (its forever windy and rainy), pack up the pram into the car and get home at 11.45am. Can you tell i hate it? Its so not worth the hassle for the 2hours of Caleb-freedom. However, he loves it. I should really focus on that :-)

- There's a possibility Aaron has a cows milk protein intolerance so the two of us are dairy free for the next 2months to test it out. He was going up to 13 days without pooing and has eczema. We're a week dairy free and he's pooed 3 times, its looking like they might be right. Im still breastfeeding hence why im dairy free too. Oh how i miss cheese. 

- Theres more crap going on at my work, which i really don't want to be dealing with when im off on maternity leave but i have no choice. So im looking at being reinterviewed or taking voluntary redundancy. Crap crap crap.

Just think of all the things he's learning and having fun with new friends. I feel for you. I did the running like that last year and it can be exhausting but worth it to see them smiling.

Hope work things settle themselves in a way that is best for you and your family.

Mmmm, I hate the school run some days as well, especially with all the rain we have been having. I have to walk to and from school morning and afternoon and somedays it just sucks!

What a cute photo of Caleb!

Amelie was allergic to milk proteins as well and I had to stay off the dairy as well. She grew out of it by the time she was two.
