like 'em close



It's late. But I can't seem to go upstairs. You see, my baby girls have moved into the basement. Tonight is the first night in their new bedroom...and I can barely stand it. They feel so far away. I keep telling myself over and over," they're only in the basement" oh my gosh, I love my 1850 sq foot home now. Anything bigger and my children sleeping in the basement would feel like they were in another state.

Can you see why I can't even fathom the thought of Kenzie going to Kindergarten this year? Oh my, why did I even bring it up? April!! oh great. Tears. Tears.

I told Julia and Kenzie if they still need that middle of the night snuggle, they BETTER come upstairs and get in bed with Daddy and I or they will be sent to time-out otherwise.

What can I say, I love to have my babies close.

oh those pictures brought tears to my eyes!! I love those girls so much. They just make me happy thinking about them. I can't wait to see you all again. I am typing this from my new laptop btw (:

My very first thought, and before you even wrote it, was, "Don't worry. They will be in your bed before the night is through!" (:

I think that is one of the reasons our small house hasn't been that big of a challenge; I like them close to me, too.
