In the mean time, the rain just keeps pouring down outside my window.
We have also spent lots of time coloring. My big pregnant self keeps squeezing into these tiny chairs upon Ada's insistence.
In the mean time, Ada is watching too many cartoons and giving into the temptation to open the Christmas gifts that are wrapped only in gift bags. I finally found some gift bags for her to play with, and I showed her how she could put her current toys in the bag and "pretend." She calls the presents surprises, and she keeps saying, "Happy Birthday!"
Last night I also decided to finally stamp and address Christmas cards, which was going so well until I ran out of stamps. And with the rain currently flooding the streets outside, I am having a hard time gathering up the energy to load us into the car and tackle the post office. It never goes well, even on a sunny day. So, this project is half finished and Christmas is a week away.
Now I am dealing with this reality.
