I'm at the office right now (shhh... don't tell BJ) but I realized that I haven't posted since Sunday, and if I don't I'm going to start getting e-mails, so here I am.
Hi. What's new?
The status around here is quo. Claire's getting her two year molars, which is about as much fun as you'd expect. Mary Grace is in an annoying phase and I find myself wanting to wring her neck more often than I'm comfortable with. It's a lot of boundary pushing and baby talk and crying and whining, oh God the whining. I don't give in, but it's very difficult to live with. We've been sending her to her room lately, rather than listening to her cry over the stupidest things... Ugh. She's a total drama queen.
Anyone who knew me as a child is laughing right now. It's SO not funny. And if you don't stop I'm going to stomp off and slam a door! Hee...
For example, this morning when I dropped off Allison and the kids, Mary Grace cried and clung to me. She hasn't done that since she was one year old - literally. It's like she's regressing, and I honestly don't know what to do about it. She loves Allison. Allison has been a part of our lives since MG turned one. There's no reason for her to cry and whine and cling to me. I just don't get it. She doesn't make any sense.
Just thinking about it makes me need to go find some chocolate. I'm working today, and enjoying the peace and quiet at the office. My dad's bringing dinner over tonight, which will be fun. Maybe I can sneak away while he plays with the kids - think he'd notice? Or, a better question, how far do you think BJ and I could get before he notices?
