A Hairy Situation
If you follow me on Facebook, you'll know that I found a....present in the girls' toilet the other day. A clever friend remarked that MY children don't cost money, they make it! Alright, if you'd like to dig through any more diapers for any more coins, be my guest! I'm guessing and hoping that little copper coin was the reason for Mimi's recent run of up-every-two-hours nights, and so far she seems to be sleeping much better. However, with Daddy snowed in this week and working from home, she's settled into a comfortable routine of waking up way too early, and Daddy brings her into OUR bed to cuddle with Mommy for an hour or two. Often she'll fall asleep, and stay asleep for quite a while after I get up! However, not today.
To pass the long, dark morning, Ernie helped Mimi pick out clothes for the day, and then the real fun started when they rummaged through the drawer and found as many rubber bands as they could! All I can say is I really had no idea she had so much hair, haha.
We spent today baking pies, baking bread, delivering boxes of "Thanksgiving Food" to local church members, and unfortunately being quite grumpy. Granted, some of us are doing MUCH better than we were yesterday (little girls, I'm looking at you!) but still. We need some attitude changes around here! I think I need to simply come to terms that I don't HAVE a good day coming my way- I'm only going to get bigger, and more sore, and things are only going to get harder to do. You know, things like standing and walking. So I need to treat every day like it's a good day, and stop expecting huge things and being upset that I can't do everything I want to.
A very happy Thanksgiving to everyone! Here's hoping your day is filled to the brim with things to be thankful for!
