Chris is out to sea somewhere and the kids and I are doing our best to stay busy. And by ‘stay busy’ I mean ‘entertain ourselves at home.’
We’re pretty good at it. I need to wear glasses a lot more, it turns out, so the kids helped me pick some out. Then we built a train track. Then we built a train track. Then we built a train track. Then we built a train track. Then we built a train track. Then I realized the solution to my problem was nigh at hand—Isaac has had marginal interest in potty training. I haven’t worried about it. Then I asked him if he’d like to earn some more trains and tracks. We examined set after set on amazon. We set up a training chart, complete with train stickers
We’ve had some limited success. Something is better than nothing at this point!
Eloise enjoyed tea with dad before he shipped out. I am lucky she’s so darn cute because she is sleeping worse than ever. She’s up four times most nights and still up an hour before Isaac wakes up…at which point she goes back to sleep. Or if she has an ok night, Isaac is sure to wake up THREE HOURS EARLY for no reason.
