While I got lucky and managed to wrangle days off for the working days between Christmas and New Year, The Mister spent the day WFHing, as they call it in his business. Working from home. In Nana’s house, this means holing himself up on the other living room with his laptop for the day, emerging only for brief periods to stretch his legs.
This left me spending much of the day with a three year old stuck to me like glue. However we managed to have fairly good amounts of fun and only limited whining. Getting outside to stomp on bubbles was a highlight of Hawkeye’s day, until mommy took him to Aldi with no supervision. I sent in for bread and newspapers and came out with a beach tent, which I set up in the living room and that provided at least an hour’s worth of entertainment on its own.
