Tuesday's Love and I'm Better Off Without Lists...

Love List...

  • I got home late tonight after dinner out for work.  Both kids tried to stay up, tucked in their beds waiting for me, but sadly my 8:30 arrival was just too late for them to last.  When I kissed sleeping Jillian, she woke up.  Sleepily she asked (taking quite a while to put the words together in a sleepy haze), "Hi Momma.  Are you.........home yet??"  Love her.
  • Watching Myles interact with all of his friends from school.  I just love it.  He is outgoing and friendly and it just warms my heart.
  • Our new deck is completely done!  AND - there is no trailer in my backyard anymore!  It looks awesome and I'm so proud of Ben and his dad for the amazing craftsmanship!  So glad he is so handy!
  • Jillian has been working on a list of her little friends that she would like to give a flower to at her dance recital this weekend.  The tattered piece of paper is filled with love for many little dancer girls.  Oh, and let's not forget the addition Myles put on the list, for the little friend from school that dances at the same studio.
  • The end of the school year is approaching and every night is filled with end of the year activities. We are so busy this week, but I wouldn't want it any other way.  Oh - and Thursday....Kindergarten graduation.  Can't believe his first year of school is almost over.
  • Saturday morning was spent wandering local antique stores.  It's awesome that my kids enjoy looking around at all of the old furniture and unique knick knacks, sitting in tiny rocking chairs, admiring toys of yesterday, and giggling trying on old hats.  Forget Saturday morning cartoons...this was the perfect Saturday morning.
  • The kids have been working through "mysteries".  The mystery that they are trying to solve always receives a name and is written in a notebook.  The most recent saga, "The Mystery of the Missing Bouncy Balls."  They look for clues and try to solve the mystery together.  It's adorable.
  • Ben came home from the grocery store last night with a huge pail of ice cream and six different types of candy toppings.  Pure love.

  • I've always been able to sleep in.  Of course, not often in the last six years since children who love to rise with the sun (or earlier).  Yet, when given the opportunity I can always sleep well into the morning.  Lately, I've been waking up in the 4 a.m. range and I've had a hard time going back to sleep.  Ben's response?  "Well, you are almost 33.  Maybe you are finally a morning person."  He was referring to old people that wake at 3a.m. to start their day (despite the fact that they are retired.) Nice.  That's the problem with having a younger husband (by a little over a month).
  • Chasing a loose cannon at a field trip in a very crowded zoo.  I didn't lose him.  Three cheers for me!  And no, it was not my child.
