Yeah! Mom is home!

Angela took off for Texas on Tuesday for a two-day business trip, leaving me alone with the kids for the first time in a while. While it's not easy handling drop off and pick up, feeding the kids and getting them down for bed at night, we enjoyed our time together. We built bathrooms (Matthew uses tiles from our former bathroom projects to simulate bathrooms in the basement--yeah, don't ask), read lots of books (Amy's a sucker for books now) and at one point both kids had every single pot and pan we own out on the kitchen floor (hey, it distracted them for a full 10 minutes--stop laughing, you'd take it if you could get it too!). 

All that said, we're very happy Mom is home. Quite frankly, we missed her. I know it was only two days, but we all missed her. Amy missed her bedtime book ritual with Mom. Matthew missed Mom "talking about his day" before bed and I missed having someone to rehash my day and the kids' antics with after the kids go down. We're glad she's home safe and sound. 

One other nugget to share. As some of you may know, Matthew is going to be Spidey for Halloween this year. Apparently, he can't wait because the last few days he's taking to wearing his costume around the house nonstop. And now he's taking it to a whole new level. He's referring to himself, as Spiderman, in the third person. "Spiderman needs to eat dinner." "Spiderman is going to sleep." "Spiderman needs his Teddy!" Need I remind you the kid is three years old. Unbelieveable.
