In CT, visiting my family. Survived taking children to the mall with my mother (ostensibly to exchange a dress she bought in the wrong size). Came home with grandma having bought two presents each for them, which is getting off relatively easy, I think, because I never take them to malls, and they were overexcited. Anand, in particular, was a little monster, trying to pull everything off every shelf. Will be very happy when he outgrows this stage. Exhausted now. They refuse to nap, but at least I have them lying down and watching tv for a bit. If only we weren't out of milk. Need tea.
