Smarty reported that she had "an awesome week" with her father. It's funny that he often "blames" me for entertaining Smarty too much while he was the one engaging her in all kinds of joint activities while I was gone. I feel very blessed that my husband is such a hands-on father and that he and Smarty are very close.
While I enjoyed my week in Beijing, there is something to be said about settling back to familiar rhythms of daily life and enjoying all the extra love that Smarty is pouring on me. She also appears to be more aware of things that need to be done around the house and attentive to details, so maybe I should travel more often :) On the other hand, nah, I just need to nag her just as much as my husband does when it comes to keeping up the house. It's great to be back!
Did you enjoy Mother's Day?
