We got up to the lake house yesterday. I made a very healthy and tasty dinner for everyone. Sarah stayed in the city again this time. She had some studying to catch up on. She says she’s loving the new privacy and loving having weekends free. My other 2 nannies are not because we have cut their hours significantly. I told them they are still on salary so it doesn’t matter their hours are cut. They still get their monthly paychecks from me. That made everything better. They are both almost done with school. Which works out best because as of next year I will be full-time dad.
My wife slept in. I got up and worked out. I got the boys up and they helped me make breakfast. I always have a house service clean and mop all of my floors the day before we get up there. My boys now spend all of their time cruising all over the floors. They are also now trying to stand on their own. They use furniture or the tables but they are doing it. We work with them every night to try to help them learn. This is a lot easier with a 2nd person let me tell you. I had already been trying to figure out how can I teach 2 babies how to walk all by myself. My wife came into our lives right at the perfect time. It helps she is a great stepmom. I love that the most about her. We ate breakfast, played with the boys and now we are just laying around while the boys take a half hour nap. We are going to get showered up then take the boys swimming. We have a family pass to a local place here and they really do enjoy it. It also helps my back. I’ve been having lower back pain for the past month. It’s a nagging pain and I don’t like it. I’ve tried working on stretching with yoga 2 times a week.
After swimming we are going to eat at a cafe my wife found. They have a very cool looking salad on their menu. I always take my some food in case they don’t have anything we all 3 can eat. I’m really excited to see what else they have there. I’m such a foodie.
After that we thought about going to see a movie but I still think they are much too young. I don’t think they would enjoy it. But she said if they start making a fuss we can just leave. She said if we don’t try to take them to these places they will never learn. That’s true. I’m still very very overly protective and I need to loosen up I guess. They are fine. We haven’t had any sickness in months. So I guess it would be okay. I’m not really much into going to movies in the theater. I’m a germaphobe Lol I don’t really like touching anything in the theater. Those kids they hire do not clean the seats. And I watched a 20/20 show once on a black light in the theater. I wanted to hurl. Not cool.
I hope everyone has survived the storm. It looks bad on CNN weather update. We are safe and staying warm. My dog loves it up here. He takes off as soon as I let him out of the back door. He runs all the way down to the beach. My wife keeps commenting on what the beach will look like this summer. We had a beach play set set up out there so I can drag it into the water this summer for the boys. It floats. She’s very excited to try it out since it was one of the gifts she got them for their birthday. It was on sale right after Christmas so she bought it early and had it built and set up out there. I know they will love the slide. They have always loved the slide in the park by the house. It’s awesome.
Have a great weekend. Stay warm and I will write more later! Love ya’ll!
