Even though I technically went back to work on Thursday (but then had to take Friday off), today it finally feels like life is getting back to normal. School started again today! Hooray! Back to a normal schedule! I just had two weeks of intense, um, quality time with my children and I think we’re all just a little sick of each other. The eight hours of separation each day will do us all good, I think.
The weather was pretty yucky on Saturday and Sunday, so things were pretty quiet. We did, however, go to a birthday party on Saturday. It was for my sweet birthday buddy, Ann Frances, and her cousin (whose birthday was on Saturday). I took some photos of them beforehand. Such sweet babies and pretty mamas!
The party was at Mardi Gras World, which made for some fun photo ops, but the ceiling inside was black, which meant my flash got completely absorbed by it, and it was impossible to take decent photos inside. Sad.
So that was fun. The boys were being pretty crabby, and Oliver was in desperate need of some one-on-one time, so after the party I took him to the grocery store. I can’t explain how wonderful it is to spend time with them alone. I really wish I could do it more.
