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!
