If the kids wouldn’t have freaked out, I would have taken a video or a picture of their dancing extravaganza last night to Maggie’s ‘Dove Cameron Radio Station’ on Pandora.
I mean, the boys… who knew they could rave like that!
It was a moment of sheer joy and sweetness. You and I were talking at the table.
The kids were dancing their hearts out.
The music was mildly uplifting at best, fun and harmless at worst.
It was a sweet, perfect, beautiful midweek moment.
These little things… these times when the kids dance so hard, it makes them want to come in and give us hugs and kisses and makes them laugh and smile with each other.
And you and I talking about what’s going on.
These things? That’s what I live for.
I love you.
I won’t make excuses, but it does appear that I didn’t do a very good job at planning the day. I went overboard on the ‘leave mommy alone and give her some chill time’ side of things. We didn’t spend a ton of time together as a family.
But we did have a great breakfast and dinner and you got some nice gifts. And our boys and our daughter went out of their way much of the week to give you sweet things and wish you Happy Mother’s Day and give you sweet little ‘We Love Mommy because…’ booklets.
Just a reminder where it all started…
This was probably more like Mother’s Day:
- Sam’s baseball game.
- Brunch at Cuzi with my parents
- Playground time at our new pool
- Roswell Arts Festival
- Chocolate chip cookies somewhere in there.
It was one of those nice, fun, outdoorsy, sweaty, but sweet Saturdays.
Happy Day Before Mother’s Day!
Happy Valentine’s Day, Sweetie!
I’ll share a little from our V Day date post-V-day.
For today, I wanted to suggest that our love is the perfect combo of The Middle’s Valentine’s Day special this year.
No fuss and comfy like the parents:
A little awkward like Brick’s:
And just fun and cute and sometimes off-the-wall like Axl:
You are an awesome Valentine, all the way around.
We took our annual trip out for the cousin’s birthday . The day trip to Augusta!
Our kids love it. And our kids are way cute. It’s true. Check these dudes out.
And check out the feather in my hair. Again… it’s all about your enjoyment and smiles. Next year… you get a feather.
You were sweet this particular day with your baked potato and salad dinner plan.
It was an empty the fridge night, and we were on the last leg. One potato. Two adults. Salad.
And then there were Tostitos and spinach dip from a little football party on Sunday. So we promptly filled up on chips and dip and then pretended like the baked potato and salad over-stuffed us (except for the room we left for Moose Tracks – the gut always has room for Moose Tracks ice cream).
That was our Tuesday. A nice dinner. One more episode of Royal Pains. Then I wrote. And you caught up on The Duggars (those crazy folks!).
One of our favorite things about Wednesday?
First, it makes some of our issues with home repair pale in comparison.
Second, it helps us realize not everybody’s life looks like they look on Facebook (I know it’s a TV show, but I also know it’s the real life daily situation of tons of people).
Third, we love how much Sue Heck reminds us of Maggie. Her unabashed and unashamed passion for being involved in everything at school and being sold out to things that are unique to being a girl at a particular age (Maggie sweetly loves the things that a 7 year old girl loves).
Fourth, we laugh and laugh and laugh. Translation: stress relief.
Thanks for being my sitcom partner.
