I had my job interview on Wednesday. I have to wait until next week to hear back. They're hiring 33 people. Apparently there are somewhere around 30 daycare centers in our city owned by them. I'm hoping that one of the ones near my place chooses me. The interviewer said that I'd get medical and dental plans with them after 3 months. Which means I could claim Skyler's meds. That would be awesome. So I've got my fingers crossed that I hear back from them.
The last couple of weeks have been horrible weatherwise. I'm pretty sure it's because I finally have time off. So it has to be rainy, gray and cold so that we can't enjoy our time together as a family. We've been mostly stuck inside (I've been crocheting of course. Preparing for the next 10 months of lovely winnipeg winter). Today is supposed to be a big party with smolder's family out in the country, but it's so icky outside I'm not sure if it's still going to happen. Sigh. I really want to go though. It would be nice to get out of the apartment. I took Skyler for a walk the other day but it was so windy I didn't really enjoy it at all.
I've been trying to focus on speaking Spanish with Skyler more, I usually do spend a good amount of time per day naming objects and talking about things, but I tend to get caught up in all the English around me from time to time and forget to converse with my son in our other tongue. So I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions for Spanish books or tv shows/cartoons. (I find I speak it more when I hear it being spoken or read it, like right now we're watching Handy Manny.) Since no one around here speaks Spanish, tv and books are pretty much the only way to go. Unless someone wants to be my spanish penpal/msnpal. And while Dora the Explorer is cute it only teaches one or two words in an episode so it's not exactly what I'm looking for.
So any ideas?
