The end of April included a week's vacation filled with doctor appointments for Alexa. Her wrist had really been bothering her and we'd gotten sick of her crying over it. They decided she'd damaged and possibly torn the ligament. So she spent 3 weeks in a cast, followed by 3 weeks in a splint. The longest 6 weeks ever in some ways...
May brought about a new preschool for the twins at the beginning of the month, followed by Alexa in the middle of the month. We moved from Friendship to Thomaston due to the pending sale of our building. And while I miss being so close to my Friendship friends, I do love the proximity to everything else. And I love the fact that all the kids have their own bedrooms and we have no noisy neighbors above us!
May also brought a big promotion for Chris at the hotel as the rooms division manager. It got him more pay, a few more vacation days and holidays, and as it turns out a lot of extra hours! I also started a new job with RSU 13. Some days are quieter than others but all in all I love it. I do feel a little bad about enjoying my time away from the kids so much, but think I am becoming a better parent for it. And they are all settling in nicely at daycare.
So nicely in fact that Jake is finally toilet training and been in big boy undies for 4 days. We've had 1.5 #2 accidents. I consider that a pretty good track record! I actually got interrupted mid-blogging by a potty call. Sadly Jake decided to flush the undies I had soaking rather than holler to me. Which led to a very unpretty sight and me panicking at the thought of everything backing up. But he was successful at flushing his underwear...just like both his sisters before him. A new rite of passage?
Spring also meant softball, umpiring for Chris, and a wrap up (almost) to Girl Scouts for the season. And we've got a busy summer ahead with a Taylor Swift concert, the 4th of July, a Bar Harbor trip, a trip to Boston to meet a group of fabulous women, a family party, 10th wedding anniversary...and how can I forget - the twins 4th birthday! phew...tired already.
