If we were having coffee this morning, we probably would have slipped and slided our way to the coffee shop because we have 12 inches of snow on the ground here in Kansas City! The nasty snowstorm that has been gradually moving east hit us hard on Tuesday. Naturally, that was the day I was scheduled to mediate a case downtown. I would gladly have rescheduled the mediation, but all the other lawyers on the case were old school litigators who refused to be daunted by a little snow. So instead of spending the day snuggled up with my littles in front of a roaring fire, I spent it holed up in a closed downtown law office negotiating. But we did settle so at least the day wasn’t wasted.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that J and N have been incredibly clingy lately. I really hope this is a short-lived phase. The boy who could barely be bothered to say goodbye to me when I dropped him off at school has started clinging to me when I drop him off. He wants hug after hug and kiss after kiss and then cries when I leave. It’s not because he doesn’t want to stay at school — he loves school — he says it’s because he misses his mommy and daddy. Nothing has really changed at home (other than me going back to work a couple of months ago), so I’m not really sure what precipitated this. Yeah, spring really needs to come.
If we were at coffee, I’d tell you that Baby J is now officially 5 months old! I managed to take some pictures of him last weekend when N was napping and J was off running errands with Albert. If you fancy a gander, you can check them out here.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I’ve been having fun planning and scheming for a sewing weekend with a girlfriend who wants to learn. She’s coming for a few days later this month and I’m going to start teaching her the basics of apparel sewing. I really love teaching and mentoring, particularly something I enjoy as much as sewing, so this is right up my alley. Add on the opportunity for good conversation with a good friend over good wine, and I’m sold!
If we were having coffee, what would you tell me?
