My sisters were in town all last week along with my cute niece, feeding me, cleaning the house, taking care of the kids, playing games, initiating crafts, giving hugs and in all other ways reminding Laylee and Magoo what it’s like to have a fully functional mom and reminding me what it’s like to have family close by. Then they got in their car and drove 14 hours back home. Darn those ship-abandoning do-gooders.
They even kept the kids overnight so Dan and I could get away to the Salish Lodge for some posh relaxation time. I loved having them, the giggling, the love and care, the female energy in the house right at a time when Dan is working crazy hours and my pregnancy sickness is having a regrettable resurgence.
I really needed them. I miss them so much already. I want my girls back!
