I left off in September with Brennan flying to Michigan with my parents. Bottom line? Kid got spoiled. Hard core. He did well without me and I didn't cry too much when I dropped them off at the airport.
Even though life was easier with only 2 kids, I missed that boy like crazy. Luckily, I headed to Michigan on the 3rd to be reunited with my little bug and left Daddy here in FL to experience the beauty that is only having to care for 1 year old twin boys.
The trip to Michigan was chaotic as they usually are. Brennan and my mom and sister Teresa picked me up from the airport, we grabbed dinner, then they took us down to Brian's parents' house for the night. We spent some quality time with them for heading to bed way too late. The next morning I headed to class bright and early, then after class went to visit my Grama while she was in the hospital recovering from surgery. Then back to my in-laws we went to get a sleepy Brennan and back to my parents' house for another late bedtime.
Brennan spent time with my youngest sister Michelle and her boyfriend Andrew on Friday while I was in class. When TT got home from work they made no-bake cookies. (Brennan calls them "poopy treats" because when he was potty training I kept them in the freezer for when he pooped on the potty. Teresa gagged when I told her that.) That night we celebrated Michelle's birthday and of course Brennan's upcoming birthday. I made them a race track cake (because what 22 year old woman doesn't want that?!) and Brennan got to sit in the birthday chair to open his gifts. It's a time-honored family tradition that was passed to the next generation for the first time. Fun stuff.
