All that said, I am really trying to make the most of this last full week at home. The laundry and dishes can wait. I've taken naps with I and spent extra time 'nuggling with K.
At the end of last week I made a point of making extra time for her. Mom stayed with I for a bit, so I could pick her up from school and we could have some Mommy and K time. But what did she want to do? Go home and see her brother. "But he's my favorite thing," she said. I convinced her to stop at Sonic for a slush, but she didn't even want to sit down and enjoy it, she preferred the drive through.
We are always talking to K (and now to I even though he doesn't understand yet) that family is important, but its little moments like this that tell me its really sinking in. Now lets just hope I can stay focused on the family when I go back to work.
