Updates have been a little slow lately. Mostly because Ben has decided it's a great idea to wake up every hour during the night and then start his day off wide awake at 4:30 (it's always good to blame the baby, right?). I am not particularly loving being up all night but, since his older brother did the same thing around this age, it was somewhat expected. Why don't children love to sleep? Sleep is the best. Everyone knows this. Also good? Eating. Nate and Ben, write this down.
The good news* is we get to fly tonight with the boys. We are going to Germany for a week and then the boys and I will head to America for a visit (Henry will meet us there in a bit).
Trapped in an airplane for 11 hours. Now with not one but two mobile monkey children. At least last time, Ben was too small to be that much of a terrorist. Nowadays, all Ben wants to do is wriggle and crawl and get down on the floor. And I have a feeling Nate will be done with sitting in one spot about 45 min in. But maybe everyone will do better than I fear and I guess the upside is at least it's not the 18 hour flight? Is it hot in here? Panic setting in.
*Not good news
Oh and by the way, lest someone gets the wrong idea and we are met at the airport in Boston by social services, the picture above just looks bad. Nate would claim he was actually showing affection. And Ben loved it. No loss of consciousness occurred.
See? Here is Ben with Patricia today. He is just fine. He can tell his therapist all about it later on in life.
