Okay, well, it’s only been a few days, but so far it’s going better than expected.
Between them, they boys can now cook fried and scrambled eggs and ramen, so I don’t have to think about feeding them too much.
Speaking of food, I made smoothies and they finally drank them! So now I just have to slowly work towards adding some spinach or something to them.
Friday I worked while the boys played Laser Tag…
And afterwards, I took them to Five Guys for lunch. Miles and Linus had never been, and it was a hit. 😀
We’ve also been playing board games, including an entire game of Monopoly. I can’t tell you what a relief it was to finally go bankrupt.
We also played Life, and while Linus ended up with a singleton, two sets of twins, and triplets, Miles was genuinely sad not to get any kids at all. (I got one girl, FINALLY!) Again, Oliver won. Hmm.
The boys are also feeding the neighbor’s cats for some money, and I got a lot of sewing done, including a dress that I’ll post about later. Tomorrow they start soccer (just low-key rec soccer, thank goodness) and until the end of the month when they have one week of camp, we don’t have a lot going on other than board games and teaching them how to cook more things.
Fingers crossed things continue to go well and they don’t drive me insane with their fake British accents!
