Well not totally alone - I also got the dogs and kids for company. But no Zoya. Zoya is off to Lake Tahoe for the weekend and a wedding. A little R & R with her sister - good food and fancy hotels.
I'm home alone with the kiddos and pooches. In the morning we're one big dog pile on the bed. The kids generally wake up around 4:30 AM and to prolong the sleep thing I've been bringing them into the main bed with me and the dogs. Not sure if Zoya would approve. Oh I'm pretty sure she would approve the kids in the bed, but not the dogs. Everybody wants to sleep right next to me - hence the dog pile. I love a good, cozy dog pile - especially if it is raining outside.
Thus far the kiddos have been pretty good. I like to think of it as Daddy Boot Camp. I ignore complaints and whining, and everybody has been pretty good. To date, bedtime has taken 1/2 hour max (and I am definitely knocking on wood here). During the day Stu has been taking enormously long naps. Today he slept from 12:30 to almost 4 PM. I took a nap too - life is good.
Photos - Stu and Nora taking a bath. This Morning after her bath Nora climbed into Stu's crib and tucked in herself and Miss Kitty for 'Goodnight'.
