Well, the fallout wasn’t soooo bad. I mean, sure, they’re crabbier than usual, but we’ve (SO FAR) managed just fine without anyone feeling particularly homicidal towards anyone else.
Of course, at first, they were all a little… sticky… Insisting on (and/or arguing over) being ON TOP of me for much of the last few days. Behold, their first morning home:
Yeah, pretty much like that.
The good thing was that we had company all weekend, and then the girls’ summer activities started on Monday, so they had very little down time to really get on each other’s (overly sensitive) nerves. Also, starting our “summer routine” with activities and such is good for all of us. (Do your kids to better when they have a routine, too?)
Since we had company on Father’s Day, we totally sucked at making David feel like royalty. The girls and I decided that we’d have a do-over next Sunday for him, complete with breakfast in bed. Even though his day was lacking in pomp and circumstance, I was able to get a great photo of him with his daughters:
In other news, I tried the Ben & Jerry’s flavor “Late Night Snack”, and I’m now a new person. It’s a vanilla ice cream with salt caramel* and chocolate covered potato chip chunks, supposedly inspired (or, um, whatever) by Jimmy Fallon. Normally, I’m a Chocolate Fudge Brownie girl all the way, but this flavor is amazing. It’s that perfect combination of sweet and salty, with plenty of salt caramel and LOTS of little covered bits of potato chip. RECOMMEND.
*Do you say car-mel or care-ah-mel?
