I really and truly have so much respect for parents of more than one kid and endless awe for anyone who’s doing it alone.
I’ve been alone with my sister’s 3 small children (plus my own who’s the oldest) since Tuesday afternoon and I feel like a twisted rag. Small hands tugging on me, constant demands for this or that, spats about literally everything imaginable, tears, whacks, pouts, giggles, hugs, smiles, you name it and it’s happened here in the past 72 hours.
I wouldn’t call this fun, but I haven’t been this happy in months. I’m with people who love me and when I think about it I well up with tears. My sister has given me thousands of dollars over the course of the year because she makes more than she needs and she knows I need it. My brother-in-law wants me to move in with them. The kids think I walk on water.
My sister and her husband come home tomorrow, but I almost don’t want them to. It’s been so nice being surrounded by the chaos and the love, like a force field against the world.
It’s also been fun texting with the 21 yo soldier I sat next to flying into SFO…
Merry Christmas, everyone!!
