This morning I'm letting him sleep in. I love having him home, but on the otherhand I'm anxious to hear more job leads. I wish we could live in this little happy family bubble indefinitely but unless we win a lotto ticket (that someone gives us, since we never actually go and buy lotto tickets!) John will have to go back to work. Which I'm sure he's ready to do after a month of searching. But I know he's enjoying his family time too. In the meantime I'm enjoying the ebb and flow of our new schedule ever since he's been home.
Since he's sleeping in, I fixed the girls breakfast. They asked for eggs, bacon and applesauce. Easy enough. This morning we had a lesson on what "thaw" means. Since I forgot to put any bacon in the fridge last night I had to quickly thaw some in the microwave. I love when the girls stop to ask what a word means. I completely forget that they are still learning words that I take for granted. They've never been big "why" girls, asking why about everything. (Although I think we've finally entered that stage, because the why's are more frequent now!) So when Maddie asked "what does thaw mean?" We had a bit of a mini-science lesson just before breakfast. Then they each practiced cracking their own eggs and whisking their scrambled eggs up.
