We’re Still Here!

It’s been a while since I’ve written, but the days melt together, and then you realize that a month has passed.

I got out of the house today, dressed in my business casual, to drive an hour for a pro bono case I am working on.  It wasn’t anything special, just an observation, but I felt a little more like me again.  I think showering, wearing makeup, and just leaving the house alone makes a huge difference.  I miss my kids when I’m gone, but I really do think it’s time to try to do some work, even just part time.  I need that part of me.  It might make me a bad mom, and yes, I know that they’re only little once — but I’m happier when I can get away for a little bit.  I can be a better, more appreciative mom when I’m doing something else with my brain.  Now to just figure out how that will work out.

Babies have had croup.  They are feeling better, I think.  Baby B was super-needy this week, but she’s now allowing us to set her down.  Baby A is all over the place, bouncing and crawling as much as she can.  They are both gorgeous.

Big brother is now 4; I meant to write a post for his birthday, but I forgot.  He’s so sweet.  He held Baby B’s arm in her seat when she was crying in the car.  I can’t believe how big he is.  He’s so smart and helpful, too.  I look at him every day and remind myself how lucky I am.  I’m so lucky to have all of my sweet little ones.  Guess I should get to bed and get to snuggling!
