One of the upsides of being home has been seeing C and the kids' routines. I feel very "Stranger in a Strange Land." There are more dance parties than I would have expected. Breakfast is a BIG DEAL. There is mandatory quiet/book/video game/nap time. Today Syd came home from preschool and recreated the daily homework battle between C and Eli. "Ugh! It's not neat! Now I guess you want me to redo the whole thing!" C obliged by raising his voice and not laughing. Averson runs the place while the bigs are gone. Atticus is a totally well behaved dog until 3:00. WTF? I sort of love it all. It's also very much, "Your husband stays home? What's that like?"
