This is one of those days where I wish I had had more energy, but I guess the good news is the girls happily entertained themselves all day long. They’re clean, fed, read-to, and loved, and I’m using those data points to chase away all the guilt I feel for not having done more active parenting today.
I took this picture of Lydia with the tea party she set up:
At the end of the day, I had the girls cuddle with me in bed and we watched the illustrated narration of Rip Van Winkle on Amazon. The narrator whispered half of the story and it was hard to hear. Lydia kept asking me why there wasn’t any sound and why the pictures didn’t move…but my favorite part was sitting on my soft bed with my two sweet girls cuddled on either side. I took creative liberties and filled in the story–as best I remembered it–when none of us could understand what in the world the narrator was saying.
