Home Sweet Trenches

Ahhh...the euphoria and bliss and relaxation of being away on vacation! Days spent watching the boyz swim and frolic. No schedules. No stress. No appointments, games, or Places To Be.

Just hours upon hours upon days of Family Time, with a 5th birthday thrown in for good measure.

It was perfect:









And then we have this morning...

which started out with a bang at 6:30 a.m. with Middle peeing his bed (all the while insisting that it was SWEAT and not PEE, Mom) and while I was inwardly groaning about that, there was a loud thud and then tumbling and then screaming. Sleepy-eyed Baby had tripped on his blankie and fell down the entire flight of stairs. (He was fine. Just scared.)

Yep, we're back.

I'm pretty sure that we're leading parallel lives in some sort of freaky Twilight Zone-ish way...

SO glad you all had a great vacation. And SO sorry that you got slammed back into reality! Start dreaming about NEXT year's vacation. Might help with the whiplash...
