Your Mom...

Somethin' for the Kiddies....

And Breathe...

The last couple of days have been low-key and unscheduled. We have gone to playgrounds, painted, played outside, visited with neighbors and ran some errands. They have even been enjoying their time in the jogging stroller!
It's days like this that I wish lasted forever. Like yesterday, after the park, when I decided we needed to get ice cream at 2:30 in the afternoon. So we did...and we sat on a bench together and chatted about things. It's moments like these that remind me how lucky I am to be home with them on a Tuesday afternoon, chatting it up and enjoying the summer day.
We saw some older boys run past us and Lucy asked, "Why don't they have their mom with them?" I explained that when you get a little older, sometimes you don't have to have your mom go places with you all the time. She wondered why in the world she would want that? And I said, "Well, some day you won't want me with you all the time...but you'll always need your mom..."
She just stared off, thinking about all of it and licking her cone. So cute I could have died.

She's probably assuming the mother of the older kids is nowhere near as cool as HER mom and THAT'S why they weren't with her.

Your positive post gives me hope that I, too, will again have an enjoyable day with my children. I love days like that and need one soon! (Apparently Luce and Annie have been collaborating on the anti-sleep thing. Grr.)
