I can't say if today was wonderful or hard. Can it be both?
It was wonderful! I really enjoyed my children - had to keep them pinned to their Math workbooks since, ahem, certain ones were rather distract-able today. But we got out some glue and beads and pine cones which made a mess I was proud of (because I'm kinda stingy about mess-making, so it proves we had fun - right?).
I also ordered some books today. Some school stuff for the little bugs (Olivia and Sue will be walking on clouds to possess their own Math workbooks!) and that was fun too!
But then there was the nap in which I dreamed not-nice things and didn't get any rest.
And the big heavy thing that fell over on Carolina and thankfully didn't kill her. THAT got me a little excited in a not-good way!
Top that off with a husband who's been out of town for five days, fifteen hours, and forty-four minutes, with three days and too many hours yet to go (but who's counting?).
Combined with being sleep-deprived, postpartum-emotional, missing my best friend, and you have the "hard" in an otherwise wonderful day.
So let the record show that it IS possible to have a wonderful day which starts off with a mug of whipped cream and cinnamon sprinkled hot chocolate...
...and commences questionably hard when same mug of chocolate is liberally splashed upon clean shirt.
It may end well yet.
And for perking up the corners of a down-turned mouth, I give you Olivia with a song she composed herself.
You may find yourself singing along because the words are simple and the tune catchy:-)
I think it's called: "Jesus Is The One Who Made Us"
I'm not sure but I think it's a good guess (and Uncle Char, you're really going to like this!).
