Just Me and the Kids

I got to spend some quality "mommy time" with the kiddos this weekend. Scot was out at a parent and kid convention the last couple of days to promote his DVD for work. Yesterday was so cold that we stayed inside and played games and stayed cozy by the fireplace. Today was much better weather wise, so we went out and played in the snow. Kyle and Emily particularly liked it when they tackled me in the snow! I must admit, I liked it too. It brought out the kid in me :)

The mommy time was extra great because this past week, I was on-call for work and the phone was crazy, so I felt like I didn't get to see them very much. Yep, the first night I got the phone, all was going well until 8pm when I got a call that some of the kids in one of the residences ran away, followed by a call about a girl from another residence who slashed her arm and needed stitches. After that, I was on the phone for 3 hours straight trying to make staffing and other arrangements! The next night was not much better since the same girl needed to go back to the hospital, but was refusing to do so and needed to be brought by the police. The last of the calls that night came at about 12:50am. And of course, after that, I had a hard time falling back asleep because I kept expecting the phone to ring again!

No news yet on the clinical supervisor position. I'm still waiting to find out when the interviews will be. I'm hearing that they will be within the next couple of weeks, so we'll see what happens.

This week promises to be busy too. On Friday, we're having Kyle's b-day party for his friends at school. Then, Saturday, we're going to my mom's for a b-day supper for me. Then Sunday, we're having a party for Kyle with all the family. And our birthdays are not actually until next week (mine on Feb. 6, Kyle's on Feb. 7), so I'm thinking it will be 2 very busy weeks! But, hey, it's a fun kind of busy, so I don't mind!
