Alyona providing comfort. And no, I should not be the one at this time. Trust me, it would have made the meltdown worse. For new parents of PI kids, that is the hardest part to learn...knowing when they need you or to be left alone. Her sister was "okay" to her b/c it was not me. For remember, at this point, I have taken everything away from her. Ahh, is it starting to make sense now.
This was after we left the Bulgarian Reunion and arrived in our cabin in KY. That's what fueled the whole meltdown deal. Her memories and reliving them a bit by being around native speakers. Hence, why we drop their native language the first month after being home w/ any of our kids. We learned this early w/ Irina and Max.
We took Reni anyhow. Can't leave her there and we knew this was just temporary. She needed something to take her mind off things. Out to dinner it was. Long John Silvers. We were the only ones in the restaurant thank goodness as the kids were wired.
Nik, by daddy again. Of course, blowing a straw wrapper at me.
We finally put Summer in a high chair b/c we were tired of her walking around.
They all really enjoyed the chicken and fish we had. This was a combo LJS and A & W root beer restaurant. Had never seen that before.
Nothing like filling them all up and going back to the cabin to sleep.
Bojan and Max decided to get up and dance w/ the music. My comedians for sure. Again, happy there was an empty restaurant. Of course it was like 9 or 10 at night as we had to finish laundry first.
got back and Irina helped the younger girls get organized.
When picking the rooms, Nik wanted to sleep w/ the younger girls. Fine by me as usually he and Logan and Alex throw stuff at each other at home. Solves one issue.
Sleep and then it was get up to tour a bit. Hoping to finish some of this up tomorrow. Gee, we did a lot last week on vacation. may have to interrupt for a Manic Monday post tomorrow.
