Lucy, when I went in to see if she was awake yet: “Don’t bug me.”I think we’ve got a strong extrovert and a strong introvert over here…
My friend Kaitlin took this photo at our playdate the other day so I finally have a picture of me with all three kiddos! (I just wish you could see Gwen’s face, that Benjamin looked even mildly interested in being there, and that Lucy was doing a real smile. Of course, Lucy’s little smirk is pretty adorable, so I guess that’s alright.)
While we were accompanying Daniel to his 50 mile race last weekend, Gwen and I stole away for a stroll in Callaway Gardens and she fell asleep in the ERGO leaving me footloose and fancy free to start reading Scoop by one of my favorite authors, Evelyn Waugh. In a garden with a sleeping baby reading Waugh. There is so much goodness in that sentence!
So, I’m just dying to watch this movie that comes out on Christmas Day:
I love feel good movies, Mary Poppins, and Emma Thompson with an undying love.
