"At work, you think of the children you have left at home. At home, you think of the work you've left unfinished. Such a struggle is unleashed within yourself. Your heart is rent."
This update is long overdue...is anyone even still reading?? It's not that I haven't had anything to write about, I promise. The problem is finding the TIME. It's been tough to juggle all of my responsibilities lately. As I sit here typing this, I should be out getting an oil change that is now almost 2,000 miles overdue. But at some point, you just have to say enough is enough! So, I am taking some time to do something I enjoy instead. I'll deal with the car later.
Elise is so cute lately. She's been in this really sweet phase - lots of hugs, kisses, cuddling. I am loving it, because she's normally too busy for those things. The night before last, as we were tucking her in, she said, "Mommy, you're my best friend." I nearly melted right there. Granted, I know she says this to lots of people, but it was still so cute to hear.
She has also gotten really into wearing her sunglasses. She thinks it's great, and she even wears them inside. She came in on Thursday and told me that I needed to turn on the lights. I had to remind her that the lights were on, and maybe the problem was that she needed to take off her sunglasses. Jamie has affectionately nicknamed her "Hollywood".
She has also discovered popsicles. We buy the Pop Ice brand, because they are enclosed in plastic, which greatly reduces the messy factor. Jamie has taught her how to push them up from the bottom, and she goes to town with them! She eats all of hers, then wants to take ours as well. YUMMM!
