flying solo - day two

so how are we coping with the 1 adult to 2 kiddo ratio today?

we're doing okay. no tears had by anyone (yet!) - a modern day miracle :)

there have been frustrations, there have been occasional gritting of teeth. there has been one time out (pretty good!). BUT there's also been coffee, the today's show, & the food network (which hudson & i both love), so we're hanging in there.

i managed to steer him away from the jello this morning, but i'm sure he'll remember & want some for lunch. however, being on my hands & knees cleaning messy food just once a morning is manageable :)

other than the food network, these are the things we're doing to keep ourselves occupied (still can't drive, ya know :( )...

(the first 2 pics were taken last night, but they were activites we did this morning, too)
carrying "monkey-loves-you" in the "baby care" (what he calls the baby bjorn)...

treating holland to her own personal drum concert (she looks thrilled, no?)...

making & modeling our bead necklaces...

sweeping the kitchen floor (one of his favorite activities)...
and now it's 11:51 & we're all still alive! lunch is coming soon, then the glory of naptime :) meanwhile, giada's showing us how to make some kind of funky pesto, hudson's "reading" my version of the message in the laundry basket with monkey-loves-you & holland's still asleep. ahhhhhhhhh, i might just make it...

(aunt nonna's on her way tomorrow - woohoooo!!)

Way to go! You are making it! And no tears - you should be very proud:)
I am sure holland will grow to love her brothers concerts in due time! Keep up the good work!
