Blood and Boxes in C Minor

I'm packing packing packing. Tomorrow we move into Casa del Lobos. There's too much to write tonight, so I promise more once we're a bit settled. Having many adventures. Meeting dear new friends, missing some beloved old friends.

Right now, the Oak Park apartment is a mountain range of boxes, and my children are playing pretend vampire family:

Liam: More blood, I'm soooo hungry!

Maya: Oh, baby, you've already drank too much blood today. Time to practice flying.

Lana: Blood! Blood! Blood!

Maya: Lana, I'm going to drink you so that you become a vampire too. Rock-a-Bye, baby blood sucker. Drink some blood.

Liam: How do I turn into a bat again?

Maya: Look, let me draw you a picture. Pretend the blood is dripping down my cheek like this. And I have sharp teeth.

Liam: Does it hurt? Will I have a boo boo?

Maya: We're magical, we don't bleed. I can sew you back together. It only hurts a little.

Lana: Me too! Me too! Lana vampire.

I love my kids.

It is overwhelming to see all the "stuff" exploded in boxes instead of neatly tucked away.

I don't want to think about moving. Ever. Again. (grin)

Oh, a vampire worried about having a boo boo—I almost fell out of my chair. How funny! You are going to show this to them someday, yes?

Thanks for sharing!
love, me
