So Boris has been home a week now, so I figured I owe you all an update.
It’s going smoothly. It’s like he never left.
Karina warmed up to him very quickly. It was pretty awesome. I think it helped that he brought her little slippers, and presents are the way to her heart, like mother like daughter.
Boris has gone right back to hogging the whole bed.
And making comments about my cooking, the other night he came home from work to potatoes boiling on the stove and chicken thawing on the counter, he says “Oh I was just going to eat leftover pizza for dinner” this is reminiscent of the time he wanted to eat hamburger helper instead of lasagna … In true Krista form I said “Really?” and grabbed the pot holders, picked the pot up off the stove , drained the potatoes into the strainer and dumped them into the trash. Yeah, I’d say we got back to normal pretty quickly. He will be lucky to eat a home cooked meal before Christmas.
He is very happy to be home. With his beautiful wife and cute little munch.
I really thought this reintegration would be way harder than the last one because of Karina but it’s been way easier, it’s been very smooth so far. I mean obviously Boris has no idea where anything is since we just moved, but it’s not like he knew where anything was before either. So really that isn’t a huge change.
The weirdest part for me is that I feel like this is “my house” because he never lived here before, I moved with out him so when he is going through cabinets I get all edgy like “What the hell, get out of my stuff, you are invading my space!” but that is irrational. But it’s so weird to share space after being solo so long. I hope he doesn’t try to move anything anytime soon. I am not ready for that.
Luckily for Boris, Karina seems to worship the ground he walks on. She is so excited when he comes home from work and when he gets her up in the morning, mommy will soon be chopped liver. It is so cute. She does her little toddler squeal-scream whenever she sees him.
We are very happy to have him home, and I can’t wait to do our Christmas tree this weekend!
I’m sure there is more, but I’ll do another update at the one month mark.
