We had such a great weekend. I kept thinking it was so much easier than I expected. I prepared excellent healthy meals all weekend and everyone gobbled them up. I cleaned up the kitchen after every meal and did laundry and all those sorts of things I imagined I wouldn't manage well. And we played ring-around-the-rosy so much I think I'm still dizzy from it.
Saturday morning, after breakfast, I set up their Valentine gifts in the living room. Originally I'd thought about putting the gifts at the breakfast table but reconsidered since that would probably mean less eating and more playing.
The boys got similar ball toys...both were big hits and since the balls were interchangeable, they shared so nicely.
Miss Pink got Pinkalicious, which really seems to have been written just for her! She also got 4 little princess figures. Best of all, she got a little mouse made especially for our little princess by my friend Charlotte.
Today I'm going to work on getting her room ready. I'm going to add scallops to her wall top and maybe even move the bed in there.
I know you'd love to know more about these little ones. I have to be careful not to disclose too much information but there is a chance that they will be with us forever. Right now we're just taking it a day at a time, getting to know them and letting them get to know us. It's going to take a lot of time for them to learn to trust us and feel safe. Unfortunately, they've been in so many homes in their short lives. They deserve better and I hope we're able to give it to them.
