My parents - my faithful, drive-around-the-world-to-get-to-you, parents - came or a few days during Christmas week.
With three birthdays to celebrate in addition to Christmas, each day together involved presents or cupcakes or parties of some sort.
Major attention-when-I-want-it withdrawal. Huge I-need-someone-to-play-with-me issues. Next time I'm either sending them home with my parents or sending them to the office with Grady because they need to feel my pain.
