The girls and I have been home alone without Matt the whole week, but he will be home soon! We can't wait. This is the first time the girls (well, more Iris than Eloise) have been vocal about actually missing him. Usually Iris asks when he's coming home whenever she doesn't like some of the rules I've put in place for her.
It's been a week of ups and downs, to be sure. Eloise's sleep habits have practically sent me over the edge and Iris has had some pooping issues. We've also gotten out of the house quite a bit, enjoyed some fun meals together and eaten more than our fair share of junk food. I guess the good at least out-weighs the bad, but it's been a close call. Of course, the one thing that made this by far the most successful time at home without Matt is the fact that I was able to be here, alone with the girls with no help at all, and not have one single twinge of anxiety. This experience was certainly a boost to my self-esteem, since last year at this time I was in such a low place there is no way I could have done a whole week like this without falling apart.
We're looking forward to a weekend of relaxing. Well, Matt and I are, at least. I am sure the girls have other ideas!
