It was more difficult than I thought it would be to get back into our routine. It was nice being around family and having Matt home. I loved the extra hands, but I really enjoyed the company. I tend to get lonely. I realized while strolling around Target last week one night, without the kids (thanks Mom!), that I talk to them constantly. Narrating life for them. I caught myself a few times saying "let's go get some diapers" or "ready, steady, go"- out loud. The other customers must have thought I was crazy. I spend a lot of time talking to them, wishing they could talk back. How I would love to have a conversation with Waverly.
