I am glad to start this “30 days of June” series just to document the daily life that we live now that O is back for good. It may appear that these posts are just very ordinary, and they are. But I am sure many years later when the boys are all grown up I will look back at this time of our lives with great fondness.
It is nice to have a normalcy, and to have another person to take care of the boys and give me few little breaks in between. It is nice that I don’t have to take the kids everywhere I go or to worry about leaving them at the babysitter while running errands.
O is really good handling the boys, and today I had time to take a nap and deep clean the stove. Well, not doing both simutaneously, mind you, but the nap really helped to reenergize for the stove cleaning. And then, while I was making dinner O took the boys down to the basement and built a cave for them. They love that kind of entertainment that I could barely keep up if I were to do it alone. Trust me, if you spend a few hours with my boys, they will make sure to exhaust you to the very end.
Talking about dinner, I made chicken curry with lots of sweet potatoes, just the ways my boys like them. O commented that it was the best curry I have made thus far. We have half a pot of left over for lunch tomorrow. It will be even better the day after. Yum!
Anyway, today O also took me to the doctor for an emergency visit due to having a bladder infection. I know, too much fun time in bed with O now that he is home. *wink* *wink* I am fine now but was in lots of pain last night. The doctor gave me antibiotics and I will be back to normal in three days, I hope. I should have drank more cranberry juice.
O does not like to have his pictures taken because he looks sickly. He told me to give him a month or so to get back into shape. Hence, he is on a mission of carb and fat galore.
(I weighed myself at the doctor office today and I am ten freaking pounds heavier than my husband. Unbelieveable!)
I snapped these with my iPhone while he was napping on the couch and hugging his little Peanut. Just don’t tell him I post his picture here.
And the boys having their reading time before bed.
