TWWA Final Days

September 15, 2009

Friday, Day 26
After work we went down to Tonya’s parents for dinner and to hang out. We had pork steaks and potatoes; they were yummy. After dinner we played poker for a few hours. Rick and I went out first so Tonya and Terri battled it out for about 2 hours. We got home late but it was a great start to the weekend.

This is Tonya’s last weekend before she starts work. We wanted to make the most of it.

Saturday, Day 27
We didn’t really do anything Saturday morning but with a big day ahead we cleaned the house and got things ready. We dropped the girls off at Aunt Kelly’s house around 2. It was the first night away from Mom and Dad for Madeline. We had a pool party to get to but it was hard to leave the girls. We had a big taco dinner and there was lots of playing volleyball and playing in the pool. My best friend is in a play so we went to that Saturday night. His play is called Lend Me a Tenor and my friend has the lead role. All our friends went to and it was a blast. The play was hilarious and it was cool to see our friends acting (my friend’s wife was also in the play). On the way back to the pool we rocked out to songs on my iPod. We swam and had a good time until about midnight. The neighbor called and said we were too loud. We moved the party to our house and stayed up until about 3. It was a great night. Sometimes it is nice to have the girls stay somewhere and really party with your friends.

Sunday, Day 28
After the fun of last night we kind of forgot that we had to get up at 7. Kelly and Ben are redoing their wallpaper and we were signed up to help. The work started at 9. It was a long and tiring day. We left around 2 PM and were exhausted. Once at home, we got things prepared for the girls to go to daycare. Diapers, wipes, clothes, bottles, blankets. We had everything laid out so it would be easy at 5:30 tomorrow morning. We were asleep by 8:30 to try to catch up on some sleep.

Monday, Day 29
Today is the girls’ first day back/in daycare. Claire is going back to KinderCare. Some of the same teachers are still there and some of the kids are still there as well. Claire says she is excited to go to school. Tonya and Claire have visited the center a couple times in the last few weeks to help Claire adjust.

Madeline will be watched by one of our friends. She has a young son and Madeline will be her only addition. Madeline will get lots of one on one time. After several checks throughout the day, Tonya is feeling better and better about going back to work.

The girls all had a great first day. Claire did not cry when I dropped her off, Madeline was awake and smiling, and Tonya also lasted the whole day.
