Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder
There are three reasons I have been so absent lately.
1. Work. Turns out when you move from part-time to full-time, you have less free time. Who knew?
2. Sickos. Starting mid-week last week, Claire started with the runny nose, watery eyes and cough. It spread to Grace a few days later and we spent most of our free time wiping noses and cuddling sick babies.
3. Mobility. Holy cow, they are so mobile now. And it really irritates them when you close the door to a room, so we just chase them around from room to room as they explore every nook and cranny.
But despite all of those things, we are having so much fun together. The working together, being with babies all day thing is going really well. Of course, it's not all sunshine and rainbows. We have days that feel like we're being pulled a hundred different directions. But most of the time, things are just delightful.
Now, if we could just get a little sunshine, life would be pretty much perfect.
