i was really on edge about this break. i am basically on my own during the day. my mom came up last monday (and will be here today too) because she has off. and last thursday i took the kids to her house in the afternoon. emily has shown so much anxiety with david that i was thinking she'd never have any kind of meaningful relationship with him until she was in her thirties. it was seriously breaking my frustrated heart! i'm happy--ecstatic even, to say that emily has made a HUGE turn around! she has spent hours with david--with little to no tears--playing and walking around WITH david...instead of trying to be as far away from him as she could! yesterday, she even skipped her nap because he wasn't napping with her. ok, so that could have been a jealousy/spite thing, but i didn't care! they played well for another 2 hours until dinner! when she gets tired, she's over him...but hey, when i'm tired, i'm over him too!! lol can't blame her there!!
they've been sharing a room now for over a week. its going swimmingly! we've had a few very minor bumps in the middle of the night. i mean, these kids have two totally different sets of sleep habits. they are really adjusting well, and can even get themselves back to sleep if one wakes the other up. loving it. loving having my room to myself again. love that david can't wait for emily to wake up so he can play with her(although, i am "shushing him" all morning because emily likes to sleep a little later!!)! did i mention that i LOVE it?!
she's not quite ready for kisses!!
