Today was one of those rare perfect days. I feel the need to document so I can remember this on a dreadful day that's bound to come.
I got to sleep until I woke naturally. It was raining. My ideal lazy morning. The house was quite as my hubby had taken H to preschool and A was still snoozing in her bed. Hubby brought home coffee.
When my daughter awoke, she came down stairs in a lovely mood. She even let me brush her hair and braid it. She went up stairs to play by herself. I lounged around reading blogs and taking pictures of my loves. The dogs played together, gently. I even got to capture a video, after all, Oliver will only be a puppy for a short while.
We had lunch as a family once H was home from preschool. Hubby took a nap, I planned and started dinner. I daydreamed about what I want from life while doing a few chores. Almost decided to paint, but opted to wait for a time when hubby isn't home to ask questions. H took a nap.
Hubby said I was sexy, despite me still in my pajamas and lacking a shower. I may not feel it, but its nice to be reminded.
Made dinner with two vegetable side dishes! Hubby and A made cookie dough. Woke up H to join us for dinner. Kids actually ate protein AND tried some veggies! Of course we bribed with cookies, but there were no tears!
Hubby and I had a conversation about family goals. It feels good to continue the discussion of what we want for our family and how we should proceed. It really helps to put the hard-life stuff in perspective.
I stole a few bites of cookie dough. Don't tell. (its a sin to my hubby, something about wasting the final product?)
And I still have a few hours left in the day! I might be able to squeeze in a soak in the tub and a DIY facial and still turn in early!
