Julia's New Normal
Then we enjoy breakfast with the three of us because Daddy leaves by 6:30 or 7 am. After breakfast clean up we hurry upstairs to get dressed so we don't miss Elmo's World on Sesame Street!
Then Julia gets to choose her own video to watch while mommy showers and Marky plays or naps in his crib upstairs. When I come downstairs to make my second cup of coffee Julia says, "Mommy is it time for school? I want to paint and do my homework!" (Is it normal for a 2 year to want to do school and have homework, and to remind their mom to do school?)
We have lots of time for adventures through out the week with Library Craft Class on Monday, Story time on Wednesday, and Gymnastics on Friday. I also like to take them to the Party gym once or twice a month because they meet tons of new kids and get to run and play indoors since park time is not available due to the cooler temps. Julia walks up to strangers and says, "What's your name? I'm Julia Star McInerney!"
Julia is always trying to figure things out and do things on her own. She loves to show Mark how to use a new toy, or try a new trick. At the party gym she taught him how to climb up the cushiony stairs to get to the big indoor slide. She's always, always busy. And always thinking of her brother.
