Mmmmm.... the dessert that bleeds chocolate is nestling happily in my stomach as I write! As you may have guessed from the title of this post, KM accomplished her duty of distracting the kids into forgetting that we were nowhere to be seen, and gained the trust of our very suspicious dog.
She came equipped with paper, stapler and hole puncher (she is a devious one!), and had the boys creating a paper garland with sights set on being "Daddy Big" (ultimate size). They were dressed in PJs, cozy on L's bed reading a bedtime story when we returned. KM plans on a return sooner rather than later, so they can get used to this "Baby Sister" idea.
We had a great time, a lovely meal, and besides celebrating our first meal out since the boys, celebrated my "Half-y Birthday," which is officially tomorrow. Half-way through forty, yikes!
