It was such a crazy week I’m just getting around to posting about it. This was my last week working nights, so as of Monday I’ll be working mornings. The boys start preschool/daycare and we’ll be home as a family every night for the first time in over three years.
The week started out fairly normal, Monday and Tuesday were the standard routine of playing at home then going to work. Wednesday started normal, Cody had planned to take the boys to the local splash pad after taking the babysitter home. They made it off our street and around the corner before being rear ended by a UTA truck at a stop sign. No one was hurt (thank goodness), but the van has a good amount of damage.
The boys were pretty upset about the accident they kept repeating “the awesome van is broken” “the truck broke the van” all night; and I mean all night. They woke up crying at around 2 am talking about the van followed by Nicholas crying “Andrew, Parker, Nicholas need another hug” over and over again. This continued until around 4 am when Cody fell asleep on the floor in their room.
Since neither of us could miss work we found that we can fit three car seats in Cody’s car so I could take him to work. It looked ridiculous, but since the other vehicle is a government one they keep government hours. That meant we couldn’t do anything the night of the accident and it was a lot of Cody dealing with the UTA (that was a nightmare) and their insurance to get a rental. The boys were pretty clingy, tired (I wonder why) and asking for ‘another hug’ all day. Thursday night was not as bad, but still a fair amount of fussing and asking for hugs.
Friday was a bit more normal, van is scheduled for repairs and we have a rental van for a couple weeks. We’re pretty excited about the big move to mornings and the boys starting school. I don’t know how they’ll handle the waking up at the crack of dawn, but I’m sure we’ll adjust.
