well rested......FINALLY : )
Last night I slept, ALL night, without drugs! Tonight I am hoping for the same, but we'll see, it feels like midnight to me but it's only 5:30. Today's visit went better, Sawyer only fussed a little and didn't want me to dress him, but he went with me willingly. I see at home it is supposed to be 82 and sunny today! It is COLD here, it didn't get above freezing all day and we got a light dusting of snow, but they still let the kids outside and we had fun. At first we played in the courtyard with one of the nannies (one of their favorites) and Kenzie was being very clingy to her. She kept directing Kenzie to come to me and play with me and Sawyer but she wasn't having any of that! She gave me a tongue lashing when I kicked the soccer ball she had intended for the nanny and then the nanny gave her a tongue lashing for talking to me that way! I don't want to start any bad habits but it was hard not to laugh at her. After a little while I asked if I could take the kids to the playground for some alone time, with all the little ones begging for attention it is hard to bond! We played on the teeter-totter, slide, and Sawyer gave his stick a ride on the merry go round. Kenzie got brave and let me help her climb up the little monkey bars and then she decided that she should be the one to catch Sawyer at the bottom of the slide! Not the best idea since he outweighs her, but I let her think she was doing it. I told her that Sawyer is her brother forever now and then she started calling him brother in Russian! Too cute! I think we should have named him Sherman....as in Sherman Tank! He is SO strong and he just goes! Fall down, get up, hit my head? whatever- didn't feel it, I see a lot of casts in our future!
