Hi, I'm Lina, and I'm an overcommitter.
For the first time ever, I had a four-sit day. It was only supposed to be a three; I can't say no. But I absolutely love my families, and it wasn't that bad of a day (just long). The twins and I went to visit Essie, Anne, and V, and the kids played together from the moment we arrived, no warm-up needed. V and I got to relax some, too. Then I went to Seth and Isabella, and had about half an hour of reading time during Seth's quiet time and Isabella's nap. Seth and I played; he didn't annoy me. Bug's mom had texted me asking if I was free for even just an hour, and I told her I could squeeze in 4:30-5:30. I fed Andrew carrots, calmed Bug's meltdown, put Andrew down for a nap, played with Bug, and left to go help Kali's mom handle the three girls while her husband is out of town.
She and I basically talked for two and a half hours, while I held Kali and she got the girls dinner and baths. For the first time, we talked openly about V and me. She'd known; I'd just never mentioned it. We had such a great talk: about babies, the gay, religion, families, names, miscarriages, health food...everything. It was awesome to be able to talk to one of my moms for awhile. I choose my families because we click, and so it's always sad that they're running out the door when I arrive (though I totally understand).
Plus, they're just all awesome people. I texted Bug's mom from Seth's house, "I forgot lunch; could you make me a sandwich instead of paying me?" She paid me anyway, of course, plus had the sandwich made when I got there, plus sent me on my way with some dinner.
I love my families to pieces. I'm exhausted. I'm off tomorrow!
