I’ve really been able to appreciate the morning routine we’ve been falling into this last week or so. Up until recently, Stefano hasn’t been willing to be apart from me if we’re home. Showering and cleaning and anything else that requires a brief separation had been accompanied by screaming. Oh, I went ahead and let him scream… but I didn’t enjoy it.
Lately, now that he is more mobile, Stefano is happy to play with big brother while I get something done. It doesn’t hurt if I put on Yo Gabba Gabba, either!
So the past few mornings I’ve been able to get the boys up and changed, throw some baby toys and Cheerios on the floor for the two of them to snack on (I would put them in a bowl but obviously the 7 month old will spill them so I skip that step) while they watch Yo Gabba, and I can shower and get ready for my day. I’ve even been able to sit here and type this mini-blog up. It’s my happy normal. I love peeking out of the bathroom to see Dante giving his brother a Cheerio, or sharing a toy with him, and Stefano beaming from ear to ear. Melts my heart.
