life is good

Today was my first day alone, although Paul was working in the basement and was there for the lunch/nap ordeal and took over at 5pm on the dot...lucky me! We got a car wash and visited with Karin, Henry's grandmother. The boys love her and she gave them a little science lesson while throwing stones in a little ravine near their house. Sam had a few very sad moments (like when I reprimanded him for waking Mae up...hmmm) but not bad. Ted is exhausted and needs more sleep, but is still being a sweet big brother. At the end of the day, I got to tuck Ted in, sing and cuddle Sam, and give Mae her favorite Chinese rice cereal bottle while she cooed at me. Life is good. It's just completely exhausting.

Hey Ellen! Glad to see you are back to the blog! Two things to impart: Normal is only a cycle on the wash machine. AND My observation of people with three kids is like watching a juggler keeping three balls aloft!! My mom did it...you can too! xxoo to you all, Susan

I love all the pictures and it looks like Mae is really coming into her own at home. I am so glad you made it back safe and sound.
