As Rachel and I both said; we had a lovely girls day on Monday!! I think it was exactly what I needed to get over a bad week and feel renewed and fresh!! We had such a great time! It was also the first time I have left Scarlett for a longer than an hour! I was really hesitant up until right before I left. I wasn't sure if I should take her or leave her but my husband assured me everything would be just fine and kicked me out the door! I'm glad he did, she was more than OK without me which makes me a little sad that she is growing so fast. However, it was nice to have a little bit more freedom. Its kind of crazy to think that by the time my boys where her age now, I was already expecting again.. I don't know what the heck I was thinking but, I'm glad I didn't think about it too hard. By the time I realized perhaps throwing a third child into the mix with some crazy toddlers might not be the best idea, it was a little to late!! And I just cant imagine life without each of these crazy little people who have given me purpose in this world.
I have continued to crochet this week, in fact I have started a new routine, instead of being a grizzly mother every time my boys jump out of their bed during bed and nap time and putting them back into bed countless times. Now, I just sit in front of their door in a rocking chair and crochet until they fall asleep. It works so much better!!! and it's actually much more time effective!! It was taking me over and hour to try and get my boys to take a nap and now they know they cant get away with anything so they just lay down and fall asleep and I get to watch as they fall asleep and turn into perfect little angels and enjoy some quite crochet time. It works out just perfectly!!!
I am also still waiting for my Silhouette to arrive!! It is estimated to come today, I was sincerely hoping it would come earlier but no such luck!! If it doesn't come today, I'm going to start getting cranky!!! Luckily I have grand plans to hang out with one of my mommy friends who understands more than any one what life is like with twins. She has twin boys of her own that are a month older than Scarlett and a 2 year old son just a few months younger than my boys. I always enjoy our play dates!! and it is so funny to watch our six kids hang out together!
Have a very lovely and wonderful day!!
