I am so happy. You may laugh but let me tell you that if you look back to a week ago you will see that I posted a very helpless and defeated post. I was afraid of being inside all summer and having fears of losing my kids. I decided enough is enough so I headed out to Home Depot yesterday and bought myself a fence for the summer. It is a durable plastic and actually it looks like a tennis net in my backyard. It took me a couple hours to put it up while the babies were sleeping and when they awoke they experienced outdoor freedom. I put the fence around the play structure so they now have a slide, sandbox, pebbles, swings, grass and all of the toys in their play area. They had a ball in their little freedom area. The older kids were jumping on the trampoline just outside of the gated area and the babies were just laughing at them. Ahhhh I just feel back to my old self and although I know this will be a tough summer I also know that it will take planning, patience and we will make it happen.
Yesterday we did a long walk in the stroller and trying to do that again today. I am loving this 60 degree weather. I am noticing a possible shift in their sleeping habits. Currently they take a long morning nap and an afternoon nap. I think I am going to start getting rid of the morning nap in another month or so. Currently we can't really venture out too far because of naptime (but where would we go anyway right)I want to make the afternoon nap a long one so we will need to do this transition soon. Happy St. Patricks Day!!!
