My first full work week from home is nearly in the bag and it’s been good. Atticus and Arlo are generally super good but after 5 days, I think they’re figuring out a plan of attack on their Old Man. I swear, Atticus said, “I will break you” behind his pacifier earlier before laughing, turning around, and fake farting on me.
For the most part, I let the kids have the run of the house while I’m at my desk. Of course, I take frequent breaks to play with them, pick up, and help around with the everyday chores of the house. Arlo has discovered one of Atticus’ favorite activities; putting the dry dog food into the dogs’ water dish. I mean, it’s been nearly 3 days since Atticus has dumped a whole bowl of food into the water so someone must take up the responsibility! Enter LoLo, Faithful Devotee of the Eater of Worlds.
Despite their uncanny ability to undo any amount of picking up in the time it takes to answer an email, I feel like I’m falling even more in love with these little guys. They’re just the happiest babies and this week has been a joy spending time with them. I really hope I can pull this off for the long term. And maybe squeeze a shower in at naptime.
