last week, daddy was in china. those weeks get fairly chick-y, if you know what i mean.
we wore high heels. (picture doesn't really show the fact that savvy chose black & white strappies to match her striped shirt. sister's wicked trendy)
we wrapped tofu & sticky rice in roasted seaweed and called it sushi.
then grandma came for a visit. i'm convinced that fallon doesn't sleep for a few days in anticipation of pink grandma's arrival. sometimes she shares her with savvy, too. i get to sit & listen to my little girls giggle & be loved on. it is about as fantastic as it gets.
plus i get extra long runs.
and grandma brings gifts. like, um, a trampoline! this cage, i mean, trampoline, will be our best friend in the upcoming warm months. i just know it.
then we prepared our girly selves for daddy's arrival. we welcomed him home with chalk.
and tutu's and eager little faces.
i must say, one of the few positives of having a traveling man, is longing for our man. the downright GIDDY daughters, the welcome back kiss, and the overwhelming peace that overcomes our home when he's back. i sleep better. i laugh more. there are more burps, sarcastic comments, and toilet seats left up. the man is back in the building.
and that gives savvy cause to celebrate.
and that means fallon gets to sit & read their special magazine together. "the economist." apparently one of the advantages of being the daughter of a man in finance is that she will know terms like emerging markets and price & yield-performance. and girlfriend can spot the shanghai skyline like a champ.
happy monday indeed.
