Just us

Matt left yesterday and it's just me and these two craziesdarlings for five weeks. As I've mentioned before, Matt will be gallivanting around Germany and Poland for the month of June and some of July, teaching both University of Delaware students and some local Warsaw students a course on Poland during the second World War. I'm more than a little envious and I would more than a little like to join him, but this time we can't swing it. There are babies to breastfeed (one in particular), immigration applications to file, and jobs and houses to find. You know, the little things.

There are moments, and this is one of these moments, when I start to wallow in my own pity-party about not going to Europe with my husband, but it will be alright. I'll stay home with the girls and we'll all miss Matt together. And together we can make Canada ready for his formal grand entrance.

In the meantime, I'll be posting about my temporary single-parent adventures and you can all help me think of the delightful things Matt should bring us home.

We miss you, Matty. Come home soon.

P.S. I realize that I'm obsessed with photos of sleeping Shira, but can you blame me?


  1. The pictures you take are beautiful....I can't blame you :-)
    They capture the moment so well.
    Do you take them with your phone?

    Best of luck in the next few weeks!

  2. Thanks so much, Hadas! Yes, I do use my iphone for all the photos. I'm not much of a photographer, but I'm saving up for an actual camera on day. But I'm always happy with the phone camera--it's always around when I need it!

    Hope you are enjoying your summer!
