Full Swing Ahead

Now that everything is kind of getting back to normal, it time will be even tighter for me now that Aidan has got kinder four days a week. True, I get more time to myself in a way, but that's it. I can't do anything more except going to a nearby supermarket or shopping centre or Curves at a specific time and to pick him up again in less than three hours' time. It is even worse when two of the days are in the afternoons from 12.45pm to 3.15pm. Where do you suppose we can go?

I think Aidan finds it a little taxing as well. It is, afterall, his first time officially in kinder, and by Day Four, he was like What? School again? and he actually said Don wan school. Having said that, he was all happy when I dropped him off, but both Wilkin and myself can actually see that he was tired, at the end of the last day, hahaha. Don't say it's only play for them. Play is when they learn.

As for me, I will try going to Curves the days he attends kinder, which is four days a week. I need to get a good pair of shoes now, as I wore a crappy KMart pair with no proper protection for my feet for two days, and now the ball of my right foot is hurting.

Aahh.... any excuse to shop lar! :P
