This heading is sort of a lie- let me explain.
Matt leaves tomorrow for a 1 week trip to Europe! He’ll be flying in to Milan and flying home from Barcelona- lets all give him a collective Ahhhhhhh! His school is taking a big-ole trip and he and a few of his teachers will be joining them. I’m super jealous that he gets to go to Italy, France, and Spain! However truth be told I was invited a long but bowed out because I can’t conceive of leaving my daughter for 10 days. For a time I was signed up, even paid in full- but when I called the nice travel people to see if 1 year olds were allowed to attend they met me with a big fat N to the O! Whatever I party with one year olds 7 days a week- they are awesome.
PS. I didn’t edit this video, Matt took this one on his phone and I just posted it. Still entertaining though right?
Anyway while Matt is a way thinking of how he can make up this 10 day leave of absence to myself and Sunny, Auntie Erin is coming for a visit! She’ll get here this evening and we can’t wait! Truthfully she is coming in to see Baby Rory- but that’s besides the point. Lets not harp on whose coming in for what reason, lets just say that she’s a fantastic friend who is volunteering to stay here at casa-la-crazy with Sunny an me. She has this misguided notion that Sunny is lots of fun all of the time and keeps saying things like: “I can’t wait to see her!!!!! I just want to spend so much time with the babies!!!!”
I love her for her enthusiasim but 3 days of Aidan, Sunny, and Rory should be enough to send her happily singing the praises of singledom- Can I get an Amen from the choir? AAAMMMEEEENNN- thanks! (Is it weird that I answer my own questions?)
Today its 60 degrees here! S.A.D be gone! Sunny and I will be out and about picking flowers and taking a LONG well deserved walk! Actually this is Brooklyn so a fair amount of dodging dog shit and stepping in fumed slush will be taking place- but again lets look for the beauty in that. I’m also blasting my buddy Bob- as in Mr. Bob Marley. After my I CAN’T BELIEVE IT’S STILL STUPID WINTER – I’M GOING TO JUMP OUT OF TH WINDOW- type of depression I read your emails and took your advice. So now we blast Mr. Bob Marley in the mornings and pretend it’s Spring. We’ve even gone as far as to make frozen fruit drinks ( okay it’s a yogurt and blueberry shake but same difference) and open the windows for some fresh air.
Oh good people how I wish you a great weekend. Did you hear about our 1st giveaway? If you can spread the word that would be loverly! (see post titled OUR 1st GIVEAWAY for details)
