Really not much going on here right now—my two boys are both sick—but my parents arrive tomorrow night and I suspect I may be a little occupied over these next two weeks.
As I said both Littlest and J are sick, which has been a little rough on us. I stayed home from work yesterday with Littlest because it hurt my heart to send him to the nanny’s, even though she would have taken him. He sleeps so much better with us too, and I wanted to him to get rested. But he’ll be back there tomorrow. He’s no longer crying from throat pain when he eats his purees (it was so sad, I almost cried).
I’ve started to get Christmas presents sorted out and chosen, though I’m putting off purchasing since I bought three pairs of shoes last week. It was a lot of money but I figured the chances I’ll find three pairs of shoes I like and that I’m comfortable in, in the near future, are as usual pretty close to nill. I hate my feet. But these shoes are pretty comfy and warm for the winter.
For Littlest I did end up buying that fabric baby doll, in a boy version, from Amazon.fr. There were only two versions that were not over 100€, which I think means they are imported from the States, since the one I got was not anywhere near that price. The other one available was the black baby girl, which I hesitated about. I mean breaking gender and race rules in one gift would have been pretty cool. But the (white) baby boy doll was extra cute. (Maybe I have a soft spot for baby boys….) I have also discovered the wealth of English-language baby books available on Amazon.fr and am going to have to show some serious restraint.
Obsessing about Christmas, watching J re-plaster the wall where our fireplace was, cuddling Littlest (he’s cuddly for once with this cold), getting ready for a gig this weekend, dealing with evening meetings—that’s pretty much it for now.
So, see you in two weeks?
