Mini Vacation with the Mini-Mes

How is it that already, at the tender ages of 2 (Princess Mini-Me) and 3 months (Princess Buttercup), the girls already resemble me in personality, looks, temperament, etc??? How amazing is it that the fingerprints of my genes just come busting out of them in ways that prevent me from denying them as my offspring? Not that I’d deny them mind you, but if I ever wanted to, I couldn’t…

So I spent 3 days with my side of the family. It was SO FANTASTIC to see my parents, my brothers, their wives & kids. I realized it has been since Christmas 2006 since we had been to visit – they’d not even seen Princess KT yet… My oldest niece is just shy of her 13th birthday – a teenager already. I can remember when I got the phone call telling me she was born and how she had red hair… I was so excited to be an aunt!!! My sisters-in-law, have both lost weight, and for the few hours I spent with them, there were these moments where I actually thought to myself – they’re holding Princess KT and Princess CaaaLalla is being entertained by her cousins – what the heck do I do now??? They both cooked dinner for us – Kym makes kick-butt pizza and Lyn made a really yummy Shrimp Linguine, after she bought me lunch at a Mexican restaurant! They got to play with all of their Polish cousins…

Hubby couldn’t go – between work and a training class he had to take – he couldn’t come with us. But getting away from home – no phone calls for me, no real laundry to worry about, no cobwebs and dust layers mocking me – what a nice little break that was. So yeah, I’ve got to work on the laundry, cobwebs & dust layers now, but I am a little more refreshed and have a better attitude about it…

AND I even got to sleep in a couple of times (past 6:30 am…) My dad made coffee every morning – mom made special treats – it was really nice to take some time off!!! I feel much better now. Am glad to be back home with my husband and girls – even work isn’t too bad today. Sleep lends an amazing perspective to life…
