I’m not sure if it’s worth recapping the holidays. I mean, the eleven days George, the boys, and I had off from work and daycare. It was brutal. Tiring. Exhausting. We got cabin fever. The house got messy. But we survived. Miraculously. George was teasing me because before the holidays, I was soooo excited about all the “family time” we were going to have.
Ha! I’ve discovered there is such a thing as too much family time. I think daycare agrees, as the boys are having a teensy bit of trouble getting back into their routine.
But more than that, I think they’re really and truly becoming two year olds. I mean they’ve started fighting more over toys. They’ve started having definite preferences, and god forbid someone else wants the same color cup as you! Or in recent days, the Cat in the Hat DVD. Linus and Miles have been fighting over it pretty much non-stop for the last 48 hours. Miles is the one who generally has it, and he just grins maniacally at Linus whenever we ask him to share it.
Anyway. So there was a lot of whining. I almost ripped my ears off. I really wanted to.
But there was some fun. Christmas Day was nice with my mom and Larry. We met up with some friends some days. We went to a birthday party. We saw a fire! We spent the night at Ren’s house, and then at my mom’s. We went to the zoo and the aquarium and the Children’s Museum.
So it wasn’t all bad. But I’m glad to be back to normal.
Proof that we had some fun…
