Today was my last day home with my little man. My mom has come up to spend the next two days with him so I can get back to my class. He was definitely feeling more normal today – orneriness was back in full force. I had to come up with ways to keep him busy.
We hung our Christmas lights and decorated the front porch, rearranged the Fisher Price nativity, fed stale bread to the birds and the neighbor cats, and baked monster cookies. As I cleaned up the spilled oatmeal and thought of how much longer cooking takes with little hands helping out, I couldn’t help but realize just how blessed I am.
