As an experiment to see if I can handle it, I took my two baby girls away for a staycation one hour south in Monterey for the weekend while my house is being renovated. It was the first time the girls got to stay at a hotel, the first time they had clam chowder in a bread bowl & the first time the girls stayed with their daddy for an extended amount of time.

The good news: I can handle the girls solo. The bad news: Miki is firmly in her ‘terrible twos’.
