Liva & Laia : 1 Year and (very nearly) 2 Months

By Stine Kuskner - Mon 29th Aug 2011

Today has been a really good day, for the first time in a long time! It was Albert's turn to get up with the girls this morning, they woke up first time around 4:30. Luckily they fell back asleep, I have no idea when they woke up the second time, I was completely passed out!

I woke up at 7:00 because Liva was just crying and crying. I could tell it was her hysterical, tired crying, and was already dreading the day - we have had some tough days, I don't know how I would survive another one. But very surprisingly, we had a lovely morning.

Liva and Laia were in a really good mood, we all played together a bit, then they looked at their books while I checked mail, facebook, etc. Around 8:30 I put them down for a nap - they still sometimes sleep in the morning, but not every day - they slept for 45 minutes. Our elevator hasn't been working for a few days, so I take the girls down to the park behind our house, they can walk there on their own so I don't need to take the stroller down. We had a fun time at the park, then went for a coffee with a friend. I had prepared pasta and fish for lunch, Laia loved it and ate loads, Liva like it and ate about half.

When I put them down for their afternoon nap they fell asleep straight away and slept for 2 hours - the second day in a row they do that. They woke up in a brilliant mood, all giggeling and playful in their beds. My mother-in-law came at 16:15 and took them out for a walk. At 17:30 a Danish girl came over, she is our possible new babysitter.

I liked her instantly, when Liva and Laia came home they took just a few minutes to trust her, which is always a good sign. They let her pick them up and were very quickly comfortable with her. She was here for about 30 minutes, we agreed she'll come back 3 days next week for a couple of hours to help me out and get to know the girls. The following week Albert, the girls and I all fly to Denmark for the week, hopefully by then we'll know whether this possible change in our life will happen or not. If not, the Danish girl will come 15 hours per week and be with Liva and Laia, that will give me a break - maybe I'll even join a gym..... The few kilos I lost for the summer have all come back during this dreadful month of August....

Tomorrow is Friday, meaning Albert will be home early. I hope tomorrow will be as wonderful as today was !
