Today the kids and I (can’t write “the girls” anymore) went to visit Dom and work and joined his co-workers for a birthday party in his honor. We had a great time. Bella ate pizza and cake and cookies and played with balloons. Sophie refused to eat more than a bite of pizza, had two or three bites of cake and cookies and laughed herself silly at the toy robot that hangs around in the office.
Everyone oohed and aahed over Ben. Of course.
Bella’s balloon died in the car on the way home. She was heartbroken.
Sophie fell asleep then woke as I transferred her to the crib and despite a solid hour of song and story refused to go back to sleep. So in the end only Ben napped today.
Ben had a cranky evening again and didn’t go down until almost 10 tonight. No sooner did I get him down than Sophie started screaming. It took me a long time to calm the hysterics and sing her back to sleep.
So once again all the blog posts I intended to write are going unwritten. And tomorrow we’ll be carving pumpkins and celebrating Dom’s birthday and his mom is coming for dinner, I think. Things might be quiet around this here blog until Monday. Or later. We’ll see. I’m going through writing withdrawal but oh well the kids come first.
See ya later, blog o’mine.
Oh. Here’s a picture of the girls snapped by Dom’s colleague, George. (He’s the one who took the stunning photos at Ben’s baptism.)
