Okay. My name is Mommy-tracked, and I admit it: Taking six hours of grad school classes within a month's time was not smart.
I'm drowning here. Okay, I wouldn't be drowning if the Harry Potter book wasn't due to land on my doorstep in a few days, tempting me to read the book rather than write the two five- to six-page papers I have due before August starts.
Um, yeah. I can do it. Really, I can. I just have to avoid HP temptation and not blog much.
On the upside:
Second child has learned how to read a bit. He's very excited.
Youngest child has figured out how to use the potty doing No. 1. Anyone who has tips on getting her to do No. 2 is welcome to offer them below. Blackmail of more jellybeans is not working.
Eldest is awesome child who is helping me get through this with some semblance of sanity intact. I owe her. What to get child to show her how much I appreciate her help? Ideas helpful.
