With another wave of Covid here 🤦🏻♂️, Molly decided to take her social life into her own hands and organize a virtual sleepover with her friends.
A true self-starter and fully adapted to pandemic life, Molly gave me a small shopping list (basically cake ingredients and popcorn) and scheduled a Zoom meeting with a few friends. She also asked if she could have the whole first floor to herself and sleep on the couch. Hey, she had a vision. 🤷🏻♂️
As I put myself to sleep, Molly and her friends were giggling on Zoom. Apparently the only hitch was that the Zoom meeting timed out ofter 40 minutes. Hmm, I was going to ask her if anyone had upgraded to Zoom Pro, but I didn’t want to be a helicopter parent. Live and learn, Molly. 😛
I didn’t get any pics of the actual sleepover but captured some pics after daylight broke the next morning.
Here she is in action making one of her specialities, an Argentinian chimichurri sauce. She has been gradually doing more and more on her own. Tonight, she made the sauce 100% on her own — chopping and mixing parsley, garlic, and more — while I pan-seared some steak to go with it. 🤩
I decided to name the kids as follows for the summer:
The older one is Skyfox because she hangs out on the 3rd floor and nestles into her little den a lot. Also, it sounds cool.
The younger one is Red 2 because it kind of sounds like a wingman from Star Wars, and she has that vibe right now. Also, it sounds cool.
Red 2 named me Orangeballer because I was playing with an orange bouncy ball when she named me that. She later changed it to Bedhead when I was near a bed and have a head, I guess. 🤷🏻♂️
Here are Skyfox and Red 2 hanging out at a coffee shop. We went here because we could eat outside even on a rainy day. We had a great time joking around. They were roasting each other pretty good, as you can see from their faces.
