5 Things Friday

We have made it to Friday!! Wow, we are all still alive!

1) I am officially sporting my boy mom badge after our first trip to Emerg for Noah yesterday. He was sitting in a storage cube, fell backwards and hit his head on the bench, with lots of tears, but even more blood - oh boy was there a lot of blood! I was greatful for my medical background and was able to handle the blood and managed to get the bleeding to stop with candy and peppa pig, but I was afraid he needed stitches. So I called up M's Mom and off to Emerg we went, 2.5 hours later we were out of there with 2 staples in the back of his head. Emilya was a super little sister during the whole thing and really let me focus in Noah! 

He really has had a rough week, falling off a bench at the farm on Monday, scraping his chin as well! 

2) I thought for sure I would need a drink after yesterday's adventures, but by the end of the day I was just too exhausted. 

3) We are super happy to report that the bulk of the basement renovation is done!! The flooring, trim and paint is done and it looks like a totally different space down there! We are waiting for the new windows to come in and we will be installing new carpet on the stairs soon as well. An IKEA trip is
happening tomorrow to get a desk and some new storage solutions, along with replacing the shelving unit we lost with the flood. 

4) We have mostly survived my first week alone with two kids and only one trip to Emerg... I'm not sure if I should call this a win or not, but I am. Cooking meals is a bit tricky with Emilya's schedule right now,  even when I had them planned out or premade. So there are definitely areas where I will be working harder at. 

5) Today Emilya has her hearing test and I have a few errands to run on my own with her, while Noah goes to the farm for lunch and naptime. M and I are both very greatful for grandparents that live near by lately with all the renovations and extra help we have needed with Noah in order to get things
done more quickly and efficiently. We are really looking forward to getting our lives back into some sort of normal without the additional tasks tacked on with the renovation! That and getting our house back into a clean order!! We look forward to being able to welcome friends and family over after this weekend to meet Emilya, as we put a hold on visitors because it was just too much with the renovation mess. 

Hope everyone has a great weekend!! I'm hoping we have a productive weekend!!
