DH is away on business. This was a more-often-than-not part of our Saitama lifestyle. It's pretty rare here though. Especially multi-night trips. But he left this morning and he'll be back late Friday night. We all miss him, and before it's over A will have at least one long wailing plaintive 'Dadddyyyyyyyyy!' bout from the front door (think Stelllaaaaaaaaa! and you're close.) :'(
But at the same time we are having our own 'hee hee hee, don't tell daddy!' fun. Today it was eating brekky in our pjs, sharing leftovers for dinner- a pick and choose tupperware banquet, not tidying the shoes in the genkan, and eating our rice with soup poured on top- with spoons!! Shocking, hey?
And before you all think I am being deceitful and encouraging my daughters to lie to Daddy be reassured that they tell him EVERYTHING the moment he calls.
'Hi Meg, it's Daddy. How was yo-'
'Daddy, Daddy! SKUSE ME! Mummy said brekky in pyjamas today!! And Daddy? Mummy said...'
And it's getting my two Daddy's girls through the business trip.
You see, this is how our family works:
