I love being home every day and every night. I just love it.
Jack and I are finding lots of fun ways to spend our time. I try to get my house cleaning done while he watches TV and takes his lingering meals. (Probably not the best parenting choice, but it self-limits his TV time and he does a really good job cleaning his tray when given plenty of time and good entertainment. We don't allow TV with dinner, of course.) I use his quiet time to do my remote billing work. In between we play games and run errands. Today was Monday, so we had story time at the library and a trip to the grocery store (completed with horsey ride).
Here are some pictures from the last week.

I'm working on more regular play-dates with Wolfie. Not only do we parents get a little break, but the boys get some great play time together.
On the weekend (oh, glorious word!) Ben and I had a bona fide date. We went to the new Alamo Drafthouse to see Oz. Now, the movie was as expected- pretty to look at and mildly entertaining, but no greatness. However, the theater is why I wanted to go. What an awesome place! It's gorgeous, reserved seating, comfortable, with delicious food you can order during the film. They don't have ads; in their place you will find vintage reels of material tailored to the film for the 20 minutes prior to showtime. It was such a fun experience, I can't wait to see another movie there.
