Daddy Day Care

Last night Holden snoozed for 15, fed for an hour, repeat. Poor Jennifer.

We get a call this morning on our home phone. Caller ID shows a Hispanic name. Carmen should be here any minute. I am worried.

"Uno momento" and I pass the phone to Jennifer whose Spanish is getting quite good now a days. The look on her face says it all. Carmen isn't able to make it until tomorrow.

Today is our anniversary and we were hoping to be able to get out and enjoy some time with each other (with Holden in tow of course). Not gonna happen.

It was a joy to spend the day with Lily, Will, and Evan as it turns out. I'm not saying it wasn't exhausting. And I'm still hoping that Carmen shows up tomorrow. There is a sense of satisfaction in going morning to night with them.

A montage of the days events:

The trips enjoy a slice of apple in the playhouse.

Jennifer takes Holden to first doctor's appt. He passes with flying colors.

Evan tries to break out of the backyard again. And he would of got away with it too if it wasn't for his meddling father.

I take the trips on jog in the triplet stroller. A cold front has come in. Lily steals the blankets from Will and Evan and covers herself three deep in warmth as they protest. Smart girl.

A neighbor dropped off dinner for us tonight thankfully. Best pot roast I've ever had.
