We shivered our way through the weekend, under mainly grey and drizzly skies. More of that delightful July weather. After my mini-meltdown at my parent's place on Friday, it's been a surprisingly enjoyable couple of days. I think at times I truly underestimate how physically and emotionally draining a few weeks of illness, a husband working long hours and little to no distance from my lovely boys can be. But rolling with the punches is the only way to be during these tough, toddler/early childhood years. And that is what I try to do. Thank goodness for a terrific Mama and friends, to listen to my gripes.
This afternoon, the sun broke through just in time for Angus' little friend Charlie's birthday party. Lucky it did too, as there was the most awesome jumping castle in the backyard AND a trampoline. The kids were in some sort of jumping nirvana. It was also nice Angus/Mama time, as Felix stayed home for a nap with Daddy. A perfect end to the weekend.
