We are in Florida for 11 days. We are happy to be here but it’s been a little hectic. The first day started with a(n overdue) trip to urgent care for Elliott’s ear infection. And every time Something goes wrong (eg when she awhile managed to fall off her chair at the restaurant), Natalie asks to go back to Chicago. She explained tonight that much of this is rooted in missing baby Ellie and Stella, her American girl dolls. I offered that we could throw a Natalie-Mommy-Ellie-Stella party when we got back. She sweetly replied, “how about I cuddle with them and you read us stories”. Aw Now I am wishing we brought those Dolls, in addition to the two dolls and two loveys that did make the trip!
Maybe the swimming underneath the waterfall tomorrow will help.
