Rainy, cold, getting dark early…yep, it is fall in Seattle. The good weather (sunny, 70s) lasted until this past weekend, but now fall has settled in. All of a sudden we noticed that the leaves have started changing. This is the last weekend for a bunch of farmers’ markets that I frequent (big sob). But fall does bring one big thing…
Our 10 year anniversary!
Where does the time go? 10 years seems like a big deal, so we are leaving town for a long weekend…without the girls. I am fairly apprehensive about this, having never spent a night away from C, much less little M. Grammie and Grampie will be here with the girls, taking over school, homework, birthday party attending, and diaper changing duties for a bit. Hopefully there won’t be too much crying (by anyone). G and I are headed to San Francisco for some good food and hopefully a last gasp of good weather too.
What I won’t miss? Foot stomping, poopy diapers, the endless asking of girls to sit down, sit still, finish their milk, and stop picking their nose, that no-fail 6:30 alarm clock (which often still occurs after a 4 am practice run), the whining that occurs during hair (C) and teeth (M) brushing, reading the same book for the eighth or ninth time in a row, 20 minutes of scraping food off the floor after a 5 minute meal, making a big, fresh, veggie rich meal only to hear “but what am Iiiiiiiii having for dinner?”, and did I mention poopy diapers?
What will I miss?
Do you think maybe they’ll take a call?
She does love that big sister—now known as something like “sha sha” in little kid language.
However, whenever I think of sleeping in and eating at a restaurant without kids…I get a little bit giddy. Hopefully my parents will still be speaking to us when we return (especially as they are staying on another three days after that). Look at those girls..angels, I tell you, just little angels. No worries Mom and Dad!
