After kind of a rough day, this is the kind of thing that melts the heart:
We had a busy fly by day. The morning whirled by, mostly because I slept until almost 9(!) thanks to Keith taking Mira early in the morning and then Lili later in the morning.
Lili and I spent the afternoon together at a High School production of "Cinderella", which was kind of fun during, but turned into total melt-down on the drive home because Lili was so tired.
Mira did very well at home with just daddy and didn't even need a bottle while we were gone. It gives me hope that I will get to see New Moon sometime soon.
But when we got home from the play, both girls were wailing and Keith and I were dragging. The rest of the evening was tough, as Mira wouldn't be put down at all, and so by bedtime we were all a little strung out.
When we tucked Lili in, she asked if Mira could lie in her bed too, and there you have it: the 2 minutes where no one was whining or crying, and we could appreciate being parents!
