It’s been a while, I know. But we’ve been busy ladies. Vacationing, moving, starting school, getting internet finally installed in the new place… the past few weeks have been a whirlwind of activities.
As usual, Lily is taking it all in stride. And I’ve had my fair share of help getting things done. My cousin Maria and friend Jill helped me pack up the old place. My friend Michael completely renovated my kitchen and designed the new place (from living room to patio) to make it feel cozy and welcoming for me and my sweet girl. Miriam and Don (and Maya and Evan) were kind enough to host us on a vacation in the ‘burbs, Angela and Bruce and Peter helped me unpack and set up (and I have to mention that Michael unpacked more than half of my boxes before I even officially moved in). I guess you can say I’m taking it all in stride too, with a little help from my friends!
Lily loves her new home. We were both nervous walking in the door as Michael wouldn’t let me take a peek at the progress. But when we arrived, we were both blown away. I think L was especially excited because he greeted us at the door with her two favorite things: blueberries and Billy Joel’s ‘just the way you are’ playing on the stereo.
L’s first day of preschool went off without a hitch (though the days leading up were fraught with calls to the DOE and the school ensuring all of her paperwork was in place). She was/is such a brave little munchie!
And today is another first! She’s home sick with a bit of a cold. Those preschool germs have infiltrated our home.
Lily is pretty, even when she’s sick!! Her hair got so long!! All the kids are sick, preschool germs and change of weather !!
