Back together again. And they missed me, so all is right with the world.
And we went from the joy we felt in seeing each other into a rough re-entry into sibling life, into "that time of the month," into the holiday season. Fun times.
I'm really hoping for a good quiet week this week. Isaiah has a mysterious, itchy rash on his face. Huston lost his first tooth, Avery is already getting the dry skin thing goin' and Lillie is refusing to cooperate with this potty training thing, and I have a head cold.
We have to remember what it's like to do this school thing, what it's like to plan and fix meals, what it's like to play with each other without ending in a shouting match and decorate for Christmas.
Should be an interesting week. And I'll try to remember to get a picture of Huston's tooth"less" grin.
