Today was a strange day that started out pretty wonderful. Since Tim and I were both home today, we decided to surprise the kids at school by meeting them for lunch. This made them very excited as they walked down the hall and saw us. Big E’s lunch was first and we sat with him and his friends. He smiled the entire time and enjoyed pointing out all of his friends to us. When it was C’s turn she was just as happy. She gets a little goofy when she is excited, so it is always kind of fun to see her in that mood. We got huge hugs from both kids before we left. I’m so glad that we had the chance to join them!
Most of the rest of the day was running errands and wrapping presents!
This evening I got some difficult news about a loved one. In respecting their privacy, I will not be posting any further details, but the circumstances have made me very sad. Having Tim here this evening has given me the breathing room to process without having to be in sole control over the children. Needless to say, I’m definitely ready for this day to be over.
