I may have whistled and skipped home when I dropped the kids off Monday morning. Everyone was ready to get back to the regular routine even though that meant back to work for me. I enjoyed the quiet productivity during the day and looked forward to picking them up after work.
During the holiday break, we spent 2 days at Nonni’s house, 1 day at Nana’s house, had a few play dates and spent lots of time playing at home (usually in pjs most of the day). Juliana also spent extra time at Nonni’s house and a day with Nana while I was working – she was very busy.
The boys played with their car ramps a lot and also spent some time drawing on their Doodle Pros.
The boys received a bunch of Fisher Price blocks for Christmas – these were a new block for us – and they are great! They stack easily and are the perfect size for their hands. Most mornings the boys head straight for the blocks.
And reading books…I love when I find them quietly looking at a book.
Juliana spent her time at home playing with her Barbie toys, doing art projects and playing with play-doh. Play-doh was banned from the house about a year ago. I was constantly throwing it away because it was left out and cleaning up hard chunks from the floor. When she received a new play set for Christmas I told her she could have another chance and she has been really good about cleaning it up every time she uses it.
