I got home surprisingly early today from client meetings and got to soak in some extra hang time with these guys. Darren was at a work event so I had them solo. I told Harper I needed her to be my helper with Royce. The stars aligned (bellies were full enough and naps had been long enough), and we had no tantrums and an ultra helpful big sister.
The night ended with both of them snuggled on me in the chair in royce’s room. Misty-eyed mama moment.
