Back to reality.

Tomorrow, it's back to the realities of daily life. As always when having fun, time flies. But it has been incredible to have two weeks off and spend time with my boys. It is not going to be easy to get back into the  métro, boulot, dodo routine, knowing that this means I go back to seeing L. only a few hours a day. The boy loved his first Christmas holidays (despite being really ill the first week) and I adored hanging out with him 24/7 again. Here's what we got up to...

...we watched it snow on Christmas eve.
Vulaines sur Seine


...waited impatiently to open up presents.
waiting to open them...

...played a bit of piano.

...met up with crawling mates.

...drove back to Paris

Galeries a few books.

...played with new toys.

...and made a new friend at shopping hell Ikea.

Hoping you all enjoyed the holidays as much as we did. Bon dimanche and bon courage for the week ahead! xx

  2. It's back to work for me tomorrow as well. I have so enjoyed the last two lazy weeks off with my Nora and Hubby. It is hard, thinking about the hours that we aren't with our kids but I do love my work and feel that I probably cherish my time with her more because on some days it is so short.
