We knew that going in and I have to say I am really not that upset or put out. Our life is what it is. This is what we do. We are extremely careful about who watches our kids and though we are aware we may be being paranoid and nutty- it's ok with us. It really is. I can't compromise the safety of my kids because I want to go out and eat an overpriced meal and then go get a little tipsy somewhere.
We just had a family day today.
- Early morning dance party hosted by The Butter Bean, complete with streamers, sparkly shoes and great Swing music.
- Lunch while we sat and joked with each other.
- Then a hike/meandering walk around the marsh.
We have laid in supplies for a bit of a party later on, to be finished with bowls of ice cream at midnight.
Until then, we will joke and laugh and play games and just enjoy this little family that has come about because a boy and a girl decided to get married those many years ago.
And believe it or not Les and I have had a couple of quiet moments to talk about the 18 years. I think we both know that this time with these young children won't last forever. Soon enough we will be able to go out and party when we want.
This is better.
