Stream of Consciousness Sunday: Clearing the Clutter



Hey everyone, it’s Sunday and this is my Stream of Consciousness Post.  If you want to participate, go on over to

Life has been hectic since we got back from vacation.  C Dub had to go right back to work, Pookah had to adjust to a new daycare classroom, and I had to go back to work.  Then, my brother came to stay overnight on Thrusday, and on Friday, I decided to start a new budget.  Like I said in my vlog on friday, it is just time.  I was thinking today that Pookah needs to go to daycare full time now.  I NEED him to.  I hate to do it, I’ll miss him everyday, but I NEED to do it.  I am tired of the clutter that has become my house.  I can never keep it straight.  Really.  I clean, and Pookah messses up right after I finish.  I just need a few days when I can just clean and write and study(grad school is coming up. Maybe) without distraction.  Its going to be hard.  But he needs to go. I am going to start him off three days a week for now, because I have to work with my new budget.  And my new budget says that I have to wait for a while before I send him full time. Like until September.  Sigh.  I want to send him NOW!.  But CDub got a new position AND a raise with it!  So, I might have time.  In the meantime, I did spend a grip yesterday on potty training stuff yesterday.  Pookah is ready.  I am ready.  He keeps saying “poop poop” BEFORE he actually poops.  Hopefully, this leads to easy training.  I’m not counting on it, but it could happen. Right?

    I totally get wanting to send your child to daycare. I’m a SAH and I just told my husband the other day…the boy needs to go do something! I also have a 4 month old but if her big brother is in school, when she turns 1, she will be too! I can’t take the mess, the no naps, the whining.

    Potty training…we are getting ready to do this too. I don’t look forward to it because my son can be stubborn…wonder who he gets that from!

    I can relate. My almost-four-year-old is going to pre-k in September, and as nervous as I am about it, I know she needs to go. Not so much for me, but so that she can socialize and interact with someone else other than her father and I all day.

    Very nice, family-oriented blog! I found you through a photo link-up somewhere that I can’t recall. 🙂

    I am so not looking for the day I send my daughter to daycare, and I am back at work! Good luck with grad school! 🙂

    I send my son to a sitter’s house 3 days a week. It’s perfect for me. I get to be a WAHM and a SAHM. It’s so important to get that time to yourself though. It keeps me sane! As for potty training, my son learned to poop in the potty before peeing and we didn’t really even have to try. It could happen!
