So, it was a strong relief when The Boy passed out in Grandma's lap around 8:00 last night and stayed asleep. I was running on fumes by the end of the school day and desperately needed a break. I watched Lost and some of the season finale of Clone Wars and took The Boy to bed.
Aside from that, the rest of the afternoon and evening went smoothly. I'm adjusting slowly to the potty training process that Mommy is moving through - head over to her blog for a nice summation of it (can't link through Blogpress). He managed to convince me to grab a diaper when I first got home, although he didn't use it. He also did pee on the potty for me.
Most of the afternoon for me, though, was spent with Younger Bro. I've been making more of an effort to spend time with him lately; considering how much time, at the start of his life, I spent devoting myself to The Boy's care, I have a lot to make up.
Over at the Eve vs. Wilms blog, there's a really great chunk about trying to adjust to post-chemo life. "Go be normal!" Yeah, okay. Says you. Still not sure how to do it.
I do have to say, though, that I'm proud about how relatively little television the boys have watched post-treatment. Grandma likes watching tv with the kids; that's fine, because spending time with Grandma is a treat that the boys should enjoy fully. I want to encourage them to be more active while they're awake. Not a problem with Energizer Boy (Younger Bro), but The Boy can be a little bit of a couch potatoe.
Hmmmm... I wonder why? (#cancersucks)
