I’m Loving Christmas Vacation December 20, 2005

Posted by table4five in Uncategorized.

When I first thought about the boys being home every day for two weeks, I imagined that they would spend most of their waking hours either driving me crazy or driving each other crazy.

Instead, they are turning out to be amazing helpers that are giving me the best present ever-time. Yesterday, for example, I had unexpected out-of-town company coming, and I was trying to get my Christmas cards addressed, stuffed, stamped and into the mailbox. Plus we had to go to two different grocery stores, and on one of the trips Ryan had to sit next to Kaitlyn and stretch his arm waaay over to her side of the van to keep the bottle in her mouth. I don’t know how many times I asked them to drop what they were doing and get me something, or come and hold the baby so I could get something. They are both becoming excellent bottle-givers, and they both love holding her while she sleeps.

I’m actually getting dishes done, and laundry, and I’ve even been able to take showers, none of which are very easy to do when I’m alone.

I wish Christmas vacation didn’t have to end.
