I am doing a shift in a twin baby minding marathon with grandchild B. The two girls are asleep right now on schedule so all is well. We will be relieved at 4 pm by K and K. Their mother has left precise instructions about all contingencies so as long as we don’t drop them or anything all will be well.
R and J will return tomorrow morning and this is their first night together away from the children. I can imagine they are elated but at the same time a little uneasy, at least that’s how I would be. Those beautiful babies become so much a part of you it’s hard to let go.
