Personal Assistant Anyone?



So I woke up today not feeling so superwoman-esque. I guess you can't be on 110% every day... The little one and I woke up late - 8:30. I know what you're thinking, but bear with me. His sleep schedule has been off all week. My mom thinks that he might be going through a new developmental phase and/or growth spurt. Usually we can have him down by 8, but lately he has been staying up until 9:30/10 and waking up almost every hour asking for something to drink. On Wednesday, he woke me up at 3:45AM, got out of bed, took my hand, and then lead me to the fridge because he wanted some yogurt. Sometimes I think I have a grown man for a son, and not a two year old. This week helped me to see how much I use post-bedtime time to just unwind and get things done, because I have been feeling high strung and tired all week :-/

Yesterday after my quiz, I crashed. The only thing I really remember doing when I got home was watching the much anticipated musical Grey's Anatomy episode - verdict is still out on that one, but it wasn't as corny as I thought it would be...

We don't have class today (thankfully) and I decided to come to school to ensure productivity - that's if I can get this migraine to go away by lunch. I thought that I might not be able to get a high-demand private study room since I woke up late and didn't get to campus until 10, but I guess not too many people were planning to spend their Friday morning here (surprised?) so I'm good...

In other news, potty training has been a HUGE success for Pumpkin and a lot of it has to do with his school. At home he has been telling us just about every time he has to use the potty. I think someone might be done with diapers by May. So proud of him!



I forgot to mention that last Friday I also attended my first Parents' Association meeting at the little one's school. I probably don't need to add another thing to my already-full plate, but this is something I have been talking about getting involved with for a while. The mom that just started the group is actually a Michigan Alum and the daughter of Pumpkin's teacher. She told the Hubs about it one day when he was getting Nate from school, and he told me. I decided a while ago that I definitely want to be have positions like "room mom" or "carpool mom", and be the "all in my kids' lives" type mom while I'm practicing medicine, so it was great to get my feet wet...

This weekend we have no definite plans. So we will hopefully get to catch up on lost sleep, have some good family time, and I'll be able to get ahead on my school work. I also started my dieting this week - well kind of...so I need to fine-tune the recipe for my meal replacement shake and develop a meal and workout plan. Dieting for me has to be treated like school, because if I don't have a curriculum, syllabus, or something...I'm going to free-style and that is usually all bad (thus this year's weight gain...) LOL

I keep thinking of random things I want to get done and errands I need to run today. I wonder if I could get financial aid to cover a personal assistant...probably not. Alright, time to work.

TGIF!
