Our respite care worker came over after school and I was able to get quite a bit of cleaning and laundry done; the house was looking a bit rough. It's so nice to have someone else entertaining the little guy while I'm home. I love spending time with the little guy, but I'd forgotten just how much I could get done around here when I wasn't spending every five minutes entertaining him.
Eden even got into the cleaning bug too; she spruced up her bathroom and put away all the dishes so we'd have time for a card game before dinner. I took her out for Thai food and some one-on-one time as a special treat, since she'd had such a good week. She chatted with me over her larb about whether or not she should try out for the school play and her upcoming field trip with her swim team.
Her English is now to the point where she can really start to carry on a conversation, which is great! I love hearing more about what's going on in her daily life, and I'm going to cherish every conversation we have about things like school, since it's probably only a matter of time before she figures out that having long conversations with her mom isn't "cool."
