It has been 16 days since the flood, and those 16 days have been a blur. Dave has been working non-stop trying to get the accounting system back up and running at his temporary office, which means that I have been playing single-parent at home and have been juggling photo sessions, baseball games, end-of-the-school-year celebrations, music programs, dentist appointments, and birthday parties.
Parker is now officially on summer break (Torin will be done on Friday). He has done a pretty good job of entertaining himself this week without his sister (so far), and I love that I don’t have to constantly watch him like when he was little. I did get a little curious this morning when he had been upstairs alone for about an hour, so I snuck up to see what he was doing.
I apologize to our family. He was changing all of the Mii profiles on our Nintendo Wii. The “Momma” character now has orange skin, extremely fat cheeks, yellow hair, and is about 7 ft. tall. Torin has very dark brown skin, a mustache, and glasses. He also altered all of the grandparents. Apparently, he found it to be a very amusing little game. And I support any task that’s going to keep him quiet and busy for a full hour by himself.
