It is 5am and I'm too excited to sleep

My wunderkind come home today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My mind is racing with all the stuff I want to do with them. I want to go for a car ride with the Arch Angel WHO HAS HIS LICENSE!!!! I want to draw bionicle storyboards with Dark Mirror. I want to cuddle up and read Ronia The Robber's Daughter with Nature Girl, I want to collect rocks with Wild Thing. I want to feed them peewee eggs and make XUP's veggie burgers for the bbq with them, and play charades in the dusk. I want to paint Nature Girl's room robin's egg blue and plug in her bird call clock. I want to set up the tent in the backyard and listen to them giggling in the dark. I want to tuck them in at night and say our prayers. I want to wash their clothes, and remind them not to stand in the fridge door while they decide on a snack.

But first I will wrap my arms around them and give them each a huge hug, look deep into their beautiful eyes and tell them how much I love them. Then I will sniff them all over like some primal mama. I have so missed their smell!
