The week that hubby is away...(continued)

Well, I obviously didn't get a chance to post EVERY night like I had intended to...the best laid plans...LOL

Tuesday morning my dad picked up Lovebug & Princess, I guess that's sort of cheating since I didn't have to get them both up & out of the house before leaving but my dad offered. :) Here is a picture from dinner Tuesday night. Princess asked for rice as I was making dinner so I made some for her and I to have.

Here is a picture of how Lovebug pulled his milk across the floor. He attached his belt around it and pulled it.

I don't remember anything too eventful happening while putting them to bed. Just the typical lots of books and songs.

Wednesday was Princess' day to go to day care and Lovebugs day to go to my parents. On the drive to daycare Lovebug was talking away. He told me that he doesn't like grass and he likes flowers better. I said that flowers were pretty. Lovebug replied "and I am handsome". I said "yes, you are". Lovebug said "what is Princess?", I said "Princess is pretty", he said "Princess is pretty like a flower". sweet!
Drop off of course didn't go well. The kids like to cry for me when I drop them off, according to hubby they are fine when he drops them off. Humph!
Wednesday afternoon I left work at 4:30 so I could make it to day care at 5:15 to pick up Princess. The traffic was horrible! I didn't get to day care until 5:27. While I was sitting in traffic I called to order dinner for Princess & I (again, Lovebug is picky and won't eat anything but chicken sticks and jelly sandwiches). So, I rush into day care, Princess of course has a HUGE smile. The director loves to tell us how Princess is her little Hanna Andersson child. We then rushed to the restaurant to get dinner, rushed to my parents to get Lovebug, rushed home to eat dinner. I had to leave at 6:30 to go to the Bushnell. My dad once again came over to put the kids to bed.

Thursday morning was much like Tuesday morning so really not much to report. After work I picked up the kids from my parents. When we pulled into the driveway Princess said "Daddy, home?", I said "no", Princess said "bowling". Then Lovebug said "I like daddy". So cute!!!
They both got to talk to hubby on the phone before dinner for a couple of minutes.

So glad that hubby is coming home tomorrow night. The kids are very excited to go to the airport to pick him up tomorrow afternoon.

Sounds like it went really well! Yay to your dad for being such a great help! :) (Both of your parents were, I am sure!)

Princess is talking so much! I love it! :) "Bowling" - that is great!

Great job for keeping things under control without the hubby there, Mama! :)
