I was re-capping the past couple weeks in my head last night when I realized it’s been times of high contrast. I’ve been to a wedding and a funeral. I had a two-day getaway with The Narrator, then he went to D.C. for three days for work. I got up super early, by choice, to watch the sunrise on the beach and look for shells. I got up super early (or is it super late), not by choice, to help little ones go potty and back to sleep (and more than once). I’ve sewn a cute summer dress and a skirt. I’ve bought clothes at the mall. I found shoes for $6 at Payless. I paid too much for a purse on the island because I forgot I needed a brown one for the wedding.
All in all, it’s been a memorable few weeks. Maybe even life-changing in some points. It was incredibly nice to have my Mom here for a week and a half. When The Narrator found out he had to go to D.C. for 3 days, Mom was able to change her ticket and stay a few days longer. What a huge blessing for me! One morning, I took T-Rex to the doctor and Mom stayed home with Little Miss. By 10 a.m. that day, I had taken T-Rex to the doctor, made a run to the bank, and a decent sized grocery run. I forgot how quickly and easily you can get things done with just one child in tow! And when I decided at 8 a.m. two days later that T-Rex needed to go the doctor again? I was able to get there by 8:30 because Mom was there to help T-Rex get dressed and Little Miss could stay at home with her, so I only had to get myself ready to go. It was just lovely (and he’s fine, just a funny rash on his scalp that’s going away).
So, I’ll be back this week with some fun stories of our adventures!
