Once again, I have two children at home.
Little Bear is back from school for a whole month! He arrived last night, and I remembered how he fills the house with his voice, his large body, his music, his self. It was nice to sit with him at church this morning as we watched Big Bear play piano for the Christmas choir (at last I was able to hear the entire songs he had practiced over and over at home!). It was nice to be out for breakfast all together. It's nice for Little Joe to have his brother around again. And it was nice to have him go to bed in his own room a few minutes ago.
It's nice to be a family. Now, just watch my grocery budget go up again!
