I haven't been blogging much because the kids are on summer break and I've decided to dedicate my days completely to them. I wrote a little bit about this for mom.me, but basically this could very well be my last summer with these crazy kids of mine. I don't know what the future holds, but I am thinking I may get a job by next year and won't be available to them all summer long. So I'm doing what I can to enjoy every moment. Everyday is like a new adventure. We have so many plans to spend our days having fun and making memories.
It's only been a few weeks but I'm really having a great time. I don't feel exhausted or worn out yet (talk to me in August). The kids are at a great age. They're both walking and talking (well, Isabel is getting there). They're both potty trained (hallelujah!). They play well together, are on the same nap schedule, and love going out to explore the world. It's really fantastic. Once again, I must reiterate my love for the toddler/preschool years. Babies are cute and all, but this...this is my sweet spot.
So hang in there, friends. I won't abandon this beloved blog of mine. Promise. Think of it as a bit of a summer break. In the mean time, you can find me on mom.me. This month I've written about our summer plans, how I deal with other parents trying to fix my kids, how we need to let our kids develop at their own pace without putting labels on them, and letting grandparents do their job without getting huffy about it: spoiling the kids.
