Sophia: A- (awake and mostly quiet- I’m soaking up every second of this until she’s more mobile and vocal)
I’m really hoping Grace can bring her day’s grade up to a B average, because her sass and boundary-testing coupled with my short fuse is not a pretty combo.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to feed a baby and make some homemade ravioli and sauce with my brother. I think he needs someone to help make sure the wine that we’ll put into the sauce is safe.
