Over the river and through the woods

My mom came to pick up Smella this morning. Smella will be spending the night there, eating tons of junk food, and will be lavished with attention. She was so excited to go and talked nonstop about it. This will be the first time she's ever spent a night by herself at my parents'.

And Boobers? This is maybe the first time he and I have been alone this long together. It's been fun; we can actually sit down to play without Smella coming over and butting her way in. He's gotten to play with all the toys all by himself. There's been no screaming or fighting. And since Boober's vocabulary is limited right now, it's been pretty quiet.

I think we miss her.

Boobers kept walking up to me like, "Soooo, yeah. Uh, where's the blond screamy one? And could you wrench this block out of my hand so it doesn't seem so weird without her?"

Luckily, Big D will be home from school soon and the noise level will rise a little. I'll be interested in seeing how the husband handles tonight without Smella. And I may have to call her on my break tonight to make sure she's okay.

I guess it's good to know that breaks from the babies are good, but I don't think I'm ready to give any of them up permanently. Yet.
