what i do when all the boys leave for a few days in miami:
baby laundry – i forgot how the many snaps on baby clothes make dryer time noisy. and my lint tray was pink.
eat sliced meals – sliced strawberries, sliced italian sausage, sliced bread, sliced cheese.
eat ice cream – too much.
eat milano cookies – whole bag. and when treating yourself to milanos, always always buy “double chocolate.” it’s the variety with the most ounces per bag, thus you get more for your buck (i like to think that is being thrifty not weird…).
visit friend’s newborn twin boys and realize that giving a baby a bottle with an 8 month pregnant belly is awkward. but all worth it to walk away a few hours later smelling like new baby.
answer the little knocks on the door upon the boys’ return and hope that i’ll be smothered with kisses and hugs. reality – they walk in the door and after a quick, “hey, mom” request a viewing of babe. so i barter with them – give me hugs and kisses, i’ll give you babe. win, win.
