I couldn’t even type “normal” without snickering, but I guess we are getting back to what’s considered normal for us.
The first few days of school were tough – no one in this house was ready for that alarm clock. I actually thought I was going to throw up when I stood up that first morning after maybe two hours of sleep. Had to sit back down for a few minutes and put my head between my knees before I could go brush my teeth.
But gradually, gradually I think we’ve all started sleeping at night (for the most part).
BobBob and Wela came over that first day and brought a fun “you put it together however you want” corral for the girls menagerie of horses. Big hit:
That was the day the girls didn’t fall asleep until who knows what wee hour of the morning, and then slept until 2:30pm, by the way. It was also the day I was in pajamas all day.
Yesterday the girls were thrilled to wear their new Chinese padded dresses to school. This is just a quick purse camera shot as they headed out the door, so the details are hard to see, but the dresses really are cool. Thick, padded, warm, and with dragons embroidered on the front. Ro’s is a pale pink and Ree’s is a bright fuschia:
Here’s to normal!
