I have to say, I am glad of this extended time Tim gets home. If schools do reopen on Thursday, that means he'll only have to work two days this week!
We've been working all day (working hard? Or hardly working? Well, it depends on your definition of both. Let's just say, I have been worn out for three days because of an unfortunate event into which I will not go.)
Ilse's room is looking more and more empty, and I am really looking forward to being able to move the crib out of the living room and into her room. I'm going to try to determine where I want to place the various pieces of furniture I am going to buy come March. I suppose it is good I have to wait until March because right now there is nothing on Craigslist I want to own.
We need to go buy a new mattress for the crib. Dad says I need a new one for our little baby, and I'm sure he's right. The one we got is pretty thin, and I remember crib mattresses being a bit thicker. I want Ilse to be comfy in her lovely white bed.
The boys have been playing happily all day. Right now Bam-Bam is the 'little tiny puppy' and Joey is making him crawl around and around. I'm glad the boys have been warm all day.
There are two pieces of clothing hanging in Ilse's closet. I bought a coat once upon a time for Abby, but Kim said she didn't need it. I'm so glad I kept it. I don't know why I did, because I certainly never thought we'd need it, but now, I'm really happy it's hanging there waiting for Ilse to be a 4T. The second piece of clothing is the pink and brown suit I got her. Maybe she'll come home from the hospital in it. It's a three month suit, but having a large child is not completely out of the realm of possibility, considering Parker genes seem to be quite large. Raesner genes are tiny if my aunts are any indication, so who knows really how big Ilse will be. Whatever size she is will be perfect, and we'll love her no matter what.
