Catching Up

I have been busy this past week with school, Madison, work and just keeping up with life in general. I have quite a bit coming up in school. This semester's classes entail a lot more work. So that can be a little stressful at times. I'm trying my hardest to sort everything out and prioritize. Wednesday night I went out to a bar/club place that is close to where I live to celebrate my friend's 22nd birthday. It was okay, I saw some people that I haven't seen in a really long time. It was really crowded since Wednesday nights are dollar beer nights and my friend got really, really drunk. I'll spare you the details but let's just say she had to get escorted out by security because she was practically passed out in the bathroom. Not only did she have to get carried out by security, she started fighting them as they were escorting her out. Yeah, it was bad. I felt bad because I bought her that last drink even though her boyfriend said to cut her off. I thought she could handle it! Apparently she couldn't!! Tonight Maddie and I went to my friend's moms house to celebrate her birthday with her family and friends. It was a good time and there were two baby boys there, 4 months old and 7 weeks old. At first Maddie wasn't sure what to do with herself but she eventually opened up and started being her silly little self. She was gentle with the babies for the most part but towards the end she started getting cranky and a little rough. At one point we had the 4 month laying on the bed and we put Maddie next to him and she wanted to lay her head on him. She also kept wanting to put her finger in the baby's mouths for some reason.

Tomorrow I'm taking Maddie to get her summer pictures taken at JCPenney. I haven't gotten her pictures taken since Easter so this time she'll be able to stand. She loves getting her picture taken by people other than me so I'm sure they will come out cute. I'm enrolling Maddie in a local Play/Music class that meets every Tuesday for an hour. This Tuesday is our first class so that should be fun. I've also been thinking (more like stressing about) putting Maddie in daycare within the next month or two. I don't know. I put in to get information on one daycare over the internet so they might call me tomorrow. And I'm debating on whether or not I shold call a few daycares tomorrow. I knew I most likely wanted to put her in daycare sometime next year. I am thinking about starting her off earlier than that for possibly 3 days a week. I would try to get all morning classes for school and put her in daycare those days I was in school. But I really don't know how everything works and I need to find out if I can get any financial aid for it. I know there is something out there through the government but I think you have to make very, very little to qualify for that. And I want to put her in a good daycare, I have money in my savings that I can use towards that but I don't want to blow right through it. I know that some daycares have financial aid to help you out and that church daycares have financial aid also. So I guess I just have to look more into it and decide whether or not it is the best thing right now or if I should wait. So we shall see! Well, I guess that is about it for right now. I'll end this post with a few pictures of Maddie playing with her Little People Village.

I've been wondering about day cares too. Avery stays w/ my cousin who has 2 little boys right now, but I want him to have "educational" time too.

Your little one's curls are just so darling!! It must be hard to be working, and going to school full time and being a mother at once. Good for you for making a difference for yourself and your daughter!
