the update

This is the second night of being a pretend mother of three.

Last night there was much giggling from Torby and Zozo in lieu of actual sleeping. Eventually the room was quiet and we all were happy. The alternative was to have Torby in the room with us and I gotta tell you, he snores!

Before bedtime, there was playing and dinner and more playing. Everyone was mostly okay and it does seem to wok best when it's a group of two and one by themselves. The groupings would change regularly and it worked out nicely.

This morning the two little ones woke up at 6:30 and played happily seperately. I then dragged Isobel out of bed just before 8. My god that girl can sleep.

Nw and Torby drove off to get Torby to grandmama's and Nw to work and I kept getting girls ready for daycare.

There is a certain rythym to the morning with getting more than one child ready.

I managed to get (not enough) work done while everyone was out. Now there is bathtime for the girls and wine o'clock for me.

Tomorrow morning we have to be up and away early for swimming lessons and ballet class. The idea of actually getting everyone awake, fed and dressed that early is a bit frightening.

Will let you know how it goes.
