It has been a really trying couple of weeks. Couple the fact that Leo is potty-training with the freezing temperatures outside and we are all going a bit crazy. A few times just this past
day week, I have threatened Jason that if he comes home and the kids are here alone, no need to sound the alarm. Just calmly drive down to the local watering-hole and I'll be the one taking a nap in the corner. I won't be drinking though. That would just be irresponsible.
I am proud to annouce that I never left my children alone at home. Success!!!!
2 major milestones have happened in the past few weeks that null and void any frustrations we may have. They February on the map as the Official Month of Love for the Gale Household.
Number 1: Elena learned how to hug.
OH!! Get out of town with the cuteness!?!?!?!?! She can try and throw all the toys in the potty she wants so long as she continues to give me the longest and best hugs ever.
Number 2: Leo learned to spontaneously, and for no reason at all, say "I love you"
He usually follows up the "I love you" with a major smooch
That is payment received in full!!!
Now stop playing/having fun/watching tv/trying to climb on me and go take a nap you two.
