Trying Times

I have two new kids starting at the child care this week: a 3 1/2-year-old boy, and a 1-year-old baby. Sooooo basically my entire day has been a combination of “Why this? Why that? Why the other thing? Why this again?? Why??? WHYYYYY??????” and this:


Now this is all normal; preschoolers want to know “why?” about everything and babies… well, babies cry, especially when I am not their mom! I knew today would be a challenge and I accept it, but that doesn’t mean I have to like it. I’m really looking forward to five o’clock today.

Yesterday, though, was AWESOME. Taylor and I watched the men’s hockey gold medal game at home and then met up with Rich and Jenn and their friends Shelley and Joel to go down to Robson St and join the celebration, because TEAM CANADA WON GOLD. It was amazing, the whole city was at a standstill and you could hear the cheering of the crowd all the way at our house. My hands are sore from high-fiving so many people and my throat is sore from screaming my head off and singing O Canada at the top of my voice half a dozen times. Taylor took a bunch of pictures of the crowd so maybe I’ll get to share some when he wakes up, although I don’t know when that will be. He stayed up until almost seven last night (normally on Sundays he goes to bed around three) and then he was stuck at work this morning until almost noon. Ouch!
