My kids are home and the transition has been rough



The kids came home after 2 days and they are a little worse for wear. Fun was had by all but they know it’s going to be awhile before they can go back. We’re hoping July will work.

Lizze won’t be in a position to quarantine for 14 days for awhile due to upcoming doctors appointments for her and the people in her house.

I get it. Some of these appointments can’t be missed and also, can’t be done via Zoom.

Anyway, the boys have had a good day, but they’re grouchy and irritable. The transition has been a bit challenging but we’re tomorrow’s a new day. I’m so happy that Lizze got to see the kids and vice versa. I’m so grateful they all had this chance. I don’t know for sure when we can do this again but we’ll figure it out.

In other news, after trying to convince Gavin to let me replace his mattress for months, he finally agreed to let me buy him a new mattress. His is so old and I don’t know how he sleeps on it. The mattress is literally sunk where he sleeps all the time.

I also reduced his mattress size as well. His room is small and his queen takes up so much space. He’s not using most of it either. I moved him to a twin xl. He’s got a mattress, frame, pillows and bedset coming. Everything will arrive in about a week or so.

I’m way more excited about this than he is but I can live with that. He’s needed a new mattress for a long time but he refused to let go of the old one. It got to the point where I was going to have to take away his choice and just do it. Thankfully, he realized this would be a good move and he agreed.

All things considered, I feel really good about today. I can’t wait for Gavin’s stuff to arrive.

I’m so happy to have the kids home. I know I need the break but I just prefer them to be around. It’s a bit counterintuitive but I am so used to having them around that I don’t know what to do with myself when they aren’t.

They’re a challenge but they’re also amazing, funny, compassionate, empathetic little humans and I love them to pieces, or maybe it’s Stockholm Syndrome. 

In all seriousness, they were missed and Ruby is definitely glad they’re home. She’s all curled up with Emmett tonight and they’re both sound asleep.

Stay safe everyone.
