I miss them.

I haven't seen my girls since Saturday morning. 5 1/2 days ago. I miss them so bad. When I turn into daycare to pick the kids up, I always scan the playground to see if one of the girls are outside. They always seem to keep an eye on the cars too, because I usually see one little girl's face light up with the recognition it's me and I hear that word screamed in sheer delight, "MOMMY!!!". But when I turn into the school this week, I quickly remember the girls aren't there. (oh, they are with their grandparents this week.)

So, I'm with Karl this week and its been nice. He's getting a lot of mommy and daddy time and he's loving it. Here are a few pictures I snapped with my phone ...


See how wonderfully chubby he looks shirtless?




Here is the "mama drinks" shirt, although he's just not a crier so I don't actually have to drink because of him!




Tom and I went out to eat at a fabulous pizzeria which makes their own mozzarella, uses only local produce and ingredients and all organic. This was my salad. From top left, going clockwise then middle, Bread, roasted red peppers, white beans, olives, polenta, sun dried tomatoes, goat cheese, shrimp/scallops and goat cheese filled cherry tomatos. Good lord. It was SO good.




Girls come home tomorrow. I can't wait!

Nancy, that is so sad! I am sure you miss them terribly. I don't know how you've been able to be away from them for that long. But, I am sure they are having a great time with their grandparents... but I'm sure they miss you too.

Lucky Karl to have you and Daddy all to himself! The onesie is really cute on Karl. And, I love chubby shirtless babies!

I LOVE that onesie... I want one.

He is so cute! And, I know how much I miss my kids when they are gone...I sympathize.

That salad looks delish!

I love the mam drinks because I cry shirt. We've got a daddy one, but what we really need is a mommy one!

I couldn't imagine my girls being away. It must be so hard not having them around!

Karl looks great...such a cutie.

I bet you're so excited to see your girls...it has been a long 6 days i'm sure!

The salad looks very strange, but I'm sure it was tasty!

Nancy ... I have finlly added this blog to my favourites. What the fuck took me so long, I have no idea.

Also, obviously Karl stole Roccos shirt because Karl is not a crier .... Rocco so motherfucking is.

Oh you, I'm sure you miss your girls...but boy think of how grandparents are spoiling them...and like anything else -- absence makes the heart grow fonder...

Karl is getting SOOO big -- it seems impossible...

and the food picture? Um, I'm super-hungry now -- oh wait, I'm ALWAYS super-hungry...

MISS YOU!

XO

My favorite time of day is when I pick J up from day care and his face lights up when he sees me.

That meal looks scrumptious!
