|See, me and my tuna fish!|
This morning the tunas woke up around 7:45 (glorious! Hallelujah #1!), and N lifted his arms to me to be picked up. Then he snuggled his little goldilocks head into my shoulder, so I sat down and rocked him like that for 10 MINUTES!!! He didn't move, and, here's the miraculous part: M didn't holler with jealousy! M rolled around in his crib, sucking on keebie and talking to his teddy bear.
Cha-ching! THANK YOU, GOD! was my first thought. (Hallelujah #2!) This is why I stay home, was my second thought. I naively thought that stay at home moms spent DAYS doing this sort of snuggling - years ago. Boy was I wrong, on that and many other accounts!
Then, as if I couldn't ask for more...BOTH boys ate their entire breakfast (1 frozen waffe and 1 yogurt tube)! This is a huge victory in the meals department this week.
So, yeah, today is freaking wonderful and it's just 10:00 am. I know that's a little early to be claiming victory, but I've got a playdate scheduled with a good friend and sunny 50-degree weather on tap for the rest of the day. Add to that I totally scored a $40 train table (with trains!) on Craigslist!
That's not to mention all my other blessings going on in my life everyday. I am the most blessed woman in the world. Thank you, God, for paydays like today.
