while you were gone

dear husband,
i know you were excited to go fishing in mexico this week.
truthfully, i was a little bit excited too.
i didn't have to make one 'real' dinner.
i didn't do (or need to do) one load of dishes.
i got to hang-out with some girlfriends from fallon without being razzed about it.
i got to hold the remote.
i didn't watch one second of ESPN or sports center.
i can't remember how many showers i took...
maybe one.
oh wait, i also do that (or don't do that) when you're here.
i didn't feel bad about not showering. (HA! that's sick i know.)
i ate a bowl of ice cream everyday without being teased.
the days seemed pretty normal for the most part.
the nights were different.
i appreciate your help feeding and bathing the girls.
i slept with the bathroom light on.
sometimes i can freak my self out.
i slept with long pants and a long shirt on.
i missed your warm body next to me.
i didn't eat healthy or much for that matter because i didn't have to cook.
i miss you.
but mostly, our babies missed you.
this one:

started eating rice cereal. she's pushing up onto all fours. it won't be too long before she crawling. she laughed a lot at big sis and mom. sometimes i would get frustrated because she burps so much and they aren't always easy to get out without a lot of fuss, especially at 4 in the morning every single night. i think she could have used a break from me sometimes. daddy's have patience when mommy's is all gone. she needs some daddy lovin'.

this one:

ran to the door yelling "dada" every time a car drove up. kissed the air and said "daddy?" with that look (you know that look. the one with her hands up by her shoulders like she carrying a plate, and her head tilted to the side)after the prayer each night. started a 'mommy and me' dance class and loves it. btw, she's the best in there and she's the youngest. she talks more and more everyday. she still hasn't figured out her trike but hopefully soon. she helped mommy changing diapers. but only camilles' diapers because monster is...POTTY TRAINED. that's right daddy. jillian learned to use the potty this week and can't wait to show you. she sleeps through her naps, went to dance class, and the mall with no accidents. i am so proud of her.

we miss you. we love you. get home fast.

love, wife

Thanks for the laugh - I thoroughly needed it today. I've been on a bit of a rampage lately. The shower is NO surprise at all - in fact I think I've even hung out with you like that. Ewww gross! :) Can't wait for BUNCO - I NEED IT!!

Alisha, that picture of Camille looks an awful lot like your baby pics, I think. Don't feel bad about the ice cream: its heart medicine.

Valerie said...

Oh, Alisha!! You said it all. That's EXACTLY how I am when James is out of town. The showering (or lack of) the eating, the light on at night...

Congratulations on the potty training! Yay to only have one in diapers.
