And we didn’t need to use any of the emergency ziploc barf bags or extra clothes that were tucked in the carry-on. (I never, ever travel with any extra clothes on the plane, but this time I nervously brought an entire outfit, right down to underwear, for everyone.) Whew! Thanks for all the good thoughts.
The house is too quiet today. I already miss Maisie’s cute little wave and adorable gravelly voice saying my full name (and it’s a hard name!), Eliza’s huge grin and hilarious sense of humor, Sol’s babylicious pudge and shining eyes, Lauren’s sparkly ever-present smile and tiny trusting hand in mine, Tate’s adorable snugglyness and utterly irresistable little curly pigtails, Hannah’s sweet air kisses and fast toddles as she tried to do everything the big girls did, and of course all the awesome mamas. Until next time!
Ro (green) and Ree (brown) are extra busy this morning coloring on their 3D Great Wall of China, making cards with hearts for “all the birthmothers in China,” and applying temporary tattoos. All three things are very popular around our house lately.
They were standing in the kitchen talking about different places they were ticklish and just cracking themselves up. I’m going to use that trick next time I pull out the camera!
We’re on our own this week, since TubaDad is in Asia, and it really is fearsomely quiet (even with the two loudest kids in the world here). So if about 11 people want to come camp out in various bedrooms around the house it would feel much better – just like our fun Utah trip. Let me know!
PS: Kim and Laurel, I’m still so so so bummed that we were quarantined and couldn’t see you!!!! Next time for sure, with double the hugs.
