Home Alone III – Day I

Posted by D under family

This is the third time that K2 is leaving us. The first time was for a quick weekend (I know I must have blogged about it, but I can’t find it). The second time was for five days. And this time it’s five days, again. Just like last time K2 did an amazing amount of prep work to make sure we don’t starve, we have clean clothes, the pets get their medication, and everything is staying on track.

K2 said bye-bye to the girls in the morning. We had already told them yesterday that she was going to visit “the fish and the otter” (the most remarkable thing about Seattle for the girls was the visit to the aquarium – K2 is going to Tacoma, so that seemed close enough). So the girls took it very well.

When I picked them up from preschool, they immediately asked for Mama, but when I reminded them that Mama was visiting the fish and the otter they were ok with that. They asked a few more times throughout the evening, but no major problems.

We had a fun evening, including two potty successes for each (even a #2 for S2) and an easy bed time. And since I like my life difficult I have started to finally get them off of their pacifiers at night. So tonight we discussed the need for “binkies” again and finally agreed that they could have “one binky” (instead of the usual three – one in the mouth and one in each hand). So far they appear to be sleeping well – I’ll post an update tomorrow…
