And this morning, as I sorted through all the photos, I noted a few more things:
The boys play really well … together and on their own. And it was wonderful to see Marc join in, too. (He did not play golf all weekend. thank goodness!) Charlie has grown up a lot in the 13 months since he and I spent Tuesdays together. Some is certainly just his age (he’s 3-1/2 now), but I think it’s also being a big brother. It suits him.
Meal times are a Big Deal … these boys love to eat!
Sam’s “lovey” is a drill. He carries it everywhere, even to the dinner table!
Not gonna lie – these two moments from Friday evening were most welcome. (especially because Saturday morning arrived before 5 am.)
|yep, the drill goes to bed with him, too|
It was also nice to see their parents yesterday morning. They all stayed for brunch to celebrate Mother’s Day and my mom joined us. Four generations all together is very special (as is getting five smiles on all five faces).
The rest of Sunday was back to typical, with naps, FaceTime with Sara, a little TV and early bedtime. We were ready for it!
