I was using this as my starting date for the day and a glimpse of our calender for the month
Sam playing with his new toy we just bought at Walmart. The kids were funny and great at the store.
scrambled eggs and red skin potatoes for lunch, the kids liked it and said it smelled good when I was cooking them.
they are packed and off to grandmas
dropped kids off at grandma's where there cousins were too.
did a little bit of coloring, stamping, drawing, sketching nothing great just playing
Did some reading and loved both of these magazines.
I'm going to start share my worksheets that I downloaded from Ali's blog and write some thoughts on it as well. These are great for writing quick little notes on and made it easy to catch up on my days thoughts. To me the writing is just as much fun and is important to include.
OBSERVATIONS: Sam telling Lucky our dog he loves them constantly thru the day and any time we have to leave him. Ummm yes he says this more to Lucky then he does to me,lol
OVERHEARD: Sam playing the CD Lemonade Mouth outside while riding his bike and singing loudly, love love that he will do this. Most boys wouldn't do this.
Gratitude: For conversations today with my cousin Sonja, she really really helped me deal with the issues from yesterday. She is wise and has a great outlook on life and reminds me that kids are kids and they are different from when we were kids. I'm always thankful God brought us closer together as adults. The way she explains and understands makes me calm down and feel like I can do this "MOM" role.
Thankful for my looong visit with friend Laureen today too. She understands and relates to my issues too because her kids do the same things. We give each other tips and share laughs and makes everything feel normal again. We've been friends for 8 years now and we've been thru the bad and the good.
Everyone needs a support group or a buddy to help us get thru these times or even just to share the good stuff with too.
FAVORITE MOMENT: Sam hugged me and said thank you for taking him to Walmart to get his new toy and for finding the right one he wanted but couldn't find himself. He does try to thank me for all the little things I do for him.
