I woke up early this morning in order to get Bryan’s kids ready for their daycare. He woke them up before he left and they were remarkably easy to get ready. The older kid was already dressed when he came downstairs. The younger one hung out in her pajamas for a little while, not quite awake. I was going to give her some time to wake up before I tried to dress her. Her older brother clearly got impatient and dressed her himself. The daycare feeds them, so the only other thing I really had to do was make sure they brushed their teeth. The younger one requested that I brushed her teeth for her. It felt really weird to brush someone else’s teeth, but I tried my best! I also brushed her hair and braided it for her.
Bryan had invited me to stay for a few days, so I went home to pack. While I was there, I made sure to shower, brush my teeth, clean, and de-clutter. I was SO TIRED, so it took me longer than usual. When I got back, Bryan was there. I had hoped to get some work done, but that didn’t end up happening. We did spend some time together before the kids came home.
I helped Bryan’s oldest with his homework. Then we all made cookies. Both of his kids seemed like good kids. We got along really well! The evening seemed like a dream. I felt like I was playing house as an adult. It felt wonderful, but also a little alien. I really enjoyed myself, even though I couldn’t touch Bryan. We had decided to make sure the kids knew me for a few months before telling them we were romantically involved. We had to wait until his kids were asleep before we could go to his room and go to sleep. We made up the couch downstairs like a bed, to make his kids think that’s where I was sleeping.
De-cluttering and cleaning: I did both today.
Hygiene: I showered and brushed my teeth today.
Mood and temperament: Both fluctuated between happy and very happy.
