…from Chloe. This is a good thing. As of tomorrow night, Chloe will be with my mom and the two of them will hit the clouds for Texas. For a glorious four days, Chloe and Sophie will not have a chance to fight or tease each other or scream in each other’s faces.
And they love each other, they really, really do. But Sophie knows that all she has to do is yell “no!” at Chloe and that’s enough to set Chloe off. So Sophie, of course, continues to yell “no!”
It’s truly wonderful to come home from a stressful day of work to two girls who are doing all they can to torture each other. When I was on the phone earlier with my brother (whom Chloe and my mom are going to visit), I could sense the mental sigh of relief from him when he realized that the child screaming at the top of her lungs was not the child arriving in an airplane to see him in a couple of days.
As for myself, I am very much looking forward to some peace and quiet. And maybe some shopping and a pedicure to do my part to shore up the economy.
