It’s been an exhausting weekend and I don’t even know what I did…

I think it was having the extra 3 year old that contributed… – whose mommy had her baby last night, it’s a girl. That makes 4 girls and 1 boy in that family now. I didn’t think having the extra little one would be that difficult, especially since I’m down 1 kid. (Q comes home in 2 days!!)

3 year olds are sneaky!! They played well for the most part but I had to keep the eyes in the back of my head open!! They were still giggling at 10pm and I found my earings had made the long journey to the sea. They filled the sink with water, chips, cups, hair gel and my earings. They were shiny… said with a smile only a mother can love!!

Last night was cute though – they were sitting next to each other on the couch – sharing popcorn while watching TV. She leaned over and said to my Li Li… “I love you” with a giggle. He was grossed out at first but soon was responding to her with, “I love you too”. This went back and forth for a while until he leaned in and gave her a kiss on her cheek. WHOA! Where did that come from? NONE of my other kids ever did something like that. I know it was so innocent but where do they come up with these things. I couldn’t help but laugh, it was cute.

Tonight when I dropped her off at her house he was happy to see her go, it was over between them. I guess 3 days together is 1 day too much. I love this stage in life. It is challenging and it takes consistency but it is well worth the labour and pain!
