A Good Week

Dear E,

Thank you for this week. It has been perfect. We're wrapping up two weeks of Christmas vacation, and while I'm a bit apprehensive about the repercussions of getting back to the grind tomorrow, I am too busy basking in contentment to give it much thought.

We celebrated New Year's Day by having dinner at Grandma and Papa's house, and you decided to sleep over. So on Monday morning I came to get you and we enjoyed a swim in the pool and a game of ping pong before heading home.

Tuesday was a rainy day, the perfect day to go to the movies! We saw Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and finished a whole bag of popcorn.

On Wednesday we went skating and you practised your figure skating moves and confirmed that you can, in fact, skate much faster than me.

On Thursday I had big plans to take you to the Children's Museum, but it turned out to be a stay-at-home-in-our-pj's day, and it was wonderful. We did manage to play with Gryff in the backyard for a bit, but otherwise we snuggled, we read, we watched a movie and then you headed out for a sleepover.

On Friday I picked you up and we finally made it to the Children's Museum with another friend. Her grandma and I followed you two around as you wandered from room to room and made your best efforts at a questionable craft table.

I'm very aware lately that our days as a twosome are nearing an end. In a few months there will be baby, and while that will be all kinds of wonderful in new and exciting ways, you and I will no doubt feel a few pangs of sadness at the loss of your "only" status. This week was just what we needed, and I look forward to cherishing any moments like this we can get in the weeks to come.
