One of my favorite parts of a day of work:
coming home to my "zoo."
The girls love sitting at the top of the stairs, holding onto the spindles and letting their legs dangle down. It's not uncommon for me to hear Honeygirl calling to her sister to join her as I walk in the door.
"Come be a monkey in the zoo with me for Mommy!"
I always come up the stairs to greet my monkeys and give them a kiss. And am met with squeals of "Mommy! Mommy's home!"
Might I add: they only do this when I come home from a 12 hour day of work.
But I love our little tradition. :)
