Hi Thursday. Cute shot of a cute kid. We have been enjoying a series of good days. There was a long, long stretch where Pilot was either sick or tired or sick and tyrannical. And it was trying. But FOR NOW - those days are faded and I'm totally falling in love with this kid. I'm not really a baby person. I'm not really the mama-type. There have been many, many days when I was pretty sure I was not cut out for this gig. BUT. This small person is just about as cool a kid as I have ever met. I think I'd love her even if she wasn't living in the bedroom across the hall from me. She so funny. The last couple weeks have been HUGE for us in terms of bonding and communicating and getting to know each other a little better. And have more fun. I love how she just rolls with everything. Including her little sister. She loves her to bits. I can't wait to see how Penn unfolds over the next year, too. This is really fun.
SO. I was loving your Mother's Day wishes. I thought it was especially funny that half of you guys were wishing to spend MORE time with your kids and half were wishing to spend time WITHOUT them. THAT CRACKED ME UP. But, I totally get it. I'm gonna go with the SPEND TIME WITHOUT THEM crowd. I'm also going to put a vote in for sleep without interruptions AND PAST 5am (Pilot, that's directed AT YOU!). AND if I may me so bold as to request that for one day NO ONE is allowed to barf on me, wipe slimy banana fingers on me, drool on me, slime me or in any other way touch me with appendages that may be classified as GROSS (Dan included). THAT would be pretty cool.
Email me if you're a winner and THANKS for playing along. I love that you do. Watch for my real Mother's Day Wish List tomorrow. PS. If you are thinking about a Mother's Day print for Mother's Day - then you best ORDER ASAP. Like right now.
Today: We're heading out to the country for coffee this morning. We're getting much, much better at coordinating afternoon naps so that's our afternoon. Throw in savouring fresh strawberries. And dreaming about painting. It's the LAST DAY OF TAX SEASON so we are really, really looking forward to seeing Dan again and getting reacquainted. Three cheers for that.
Oh, April - you were terrific. Now get lost. GO!
