As mentioned previo, Jessica visited this weekend. (read about her flight over....here) We didn't do much but it was so (so so so so so so) nice to have a verbal being keep me company while Simon worked, Julia repeatedly unplugged all living area sources of light and Sebastian ate and ate and ate and ate.
Simon was kind enough to watch both miniterrors on Saturday night so we could tear up the shopping mall scene (J.crew clearance rack and H and M everyrack), eat food court sushi and split some health food from Five Guys.
Jessica was a real saint about packing the kids up with me on Sunday and hitting up my long lost love...the Goodwill...in the rain. She tolerated Julia emptying her wallet, stealing her cell phone and annoyingly/creepily watching her change clothes. She also shared in diaper duty, didn't complain about the frozen pizza cuisine and cheerfully rose at the ungodly hour of realllllly early with me and the crazies.
She successfully trained Julia to be 'gentle' with poor Lucy who has recently been falling victim to vicious pinches and fur pulls.
Basically she was my saving grace...or saving Jessica I suppose.
Hopefully we didn't scare her away forever from our Cheerio strewn, annoyingly dark, sometimes fussy, sometimes whiney baby lair.
Merry Monday to you and yours and theirs.
