I was having problems with blogger yesterday and couldn't get my post to show up. But it was lame anyway so I'm back-dating this post to suffice for Monday's.
Mr. Q and I have had a wonderful time away together. It has surpassed all my expectations and I am so, so glad that we did this. I'm also glad that we waited to do so until the girls were 5 and 3 as their level of understanding of our trip has really contributed to our sense of security in leaving them.
My parents report that the girls have been exceedingly well-behaved and the girls also report that they are having fun. So much fun, in fact, that they banded together to play a little trick on us.
They called us one day and the first thing I heard was Beezus saying "Guess what Mommy ? We got our ears pierced !" and Ramona chiming in with the same.
Knowing my mother, this is a VERY DISTINCT possibility that she had done this, had I not told her somewhat recently that the girls would get their ears pierced around the time of their First Communion at age 7 or 8.
I only hesitated for half a second wondering if it was true, and I then I played along with mock outrage.
They laughed and laughed and laughed. Good one, Mom !
