I’m starting to have some panic attacks. Alex is leaving for China for a week on Saturday morning. A WEEK. And of course there’s no school on Monday–because, really, there’s never school on Monday. (OMG, the former teacher in me hates myself for writing that…but when your 2 year old only goes to school on Monday and Wednesdays, you covet every single Monday and curse the ones that holidays fall on…and did ya ever notice that EVERY holiday falls on a Monday?) So I’ve been dreading having a solo three day weekend with no plans at all. But then, I realized, it’s not 3 days that I need to get to, it’s really basically 5! Leo only goes to school for half days on Thursdays which means I’ll be with at least one child 24/7 from Thursday morning until next Wednesday morning at 8:00. Just writing that makes me want to vomit. I love my kids. I do. But this trip came up unexpectedly and I didn’t really process the fact that I am going to be alone with them for soooooooo stinking long so we made no plans. If you’re reading this, PLEASE SEND HELP! I am serious when I say I may not survive. So if you know any place I can drop my kids off this weekend, let me know! A play space, a park, a garage, the curb…anywhere! My chest feels like it’s collapsing. If you see me in the next week, forgive the fact that I’ll most definitely be strung out. Send me your love and hand me a coffee and tell me you love me!
Time to think of happier times like my time with Hannah and Brooke. I love seeing these guys because they are almost exactly the same age difference as my boys but a year behind. But lucky for them their mama is a former preK teacher and super organized and structured and just a kicka$% all around great mom, so these kids are loved and are pretty much living their best lives. We had a blast hanging out and talking Halloween. And I feel soooooo lucky that I’ve been asked to photograph this family in their gorgeous, gorgeous home year after year. I kinda feel like they should be on an ad for North Reading. I mean, look at these cute lil poster children.
