An Ordinary Morning...

It started as an ordinary trip on an ordinary day with no real plans.
At the book store, we ended up the only people there for Story Time.
The large Mom's group they were expecting didn't show.
Special stories just for us, cupcakes to decorate and a Christmas tree art project.
Lucky us!
Off to Costco to grab a few things. a spontaneous decision to eat pizza in the food area was made.
I have never done that before and felt a little PLG about doing it.
The kids were ecstatic, daring to touch the pizza to see if it was too hot to eat.
Loving the table, the umbrella, the action all around us.
I think I would have loved it too, when I was little.
Things like this always intrigued me.
An older woman comes up to me and whispers, "Your kids are the cutest things I have ever seen."
Lucy asks to sit in my lap.
Tommy lays his head on my shoulder.
"You're a great mom," says Tommy.
They both hum a song from "Annie."
So here we sit in this silly store in this ridiculous food area eating ridiculously greasy pizza.
And it was one of the best mornings of my life.
I wonder if you guys will remember this morning. I hope so.

I'm a 39 year old stay-at-home mom. I have a 9 year old daughter and a 7 year old son. I have lived in the big city and in the mountains, but am happy to be back in the Midwest, raising the fam. I enjoy laughing, wine, bad karaoke, US Weekly, running, cemetaries, cheese sticks and short hair-dos. In my previous life, I was class-clown and a wanna-be comedian. In my professional life, I'm a journalism major with 10 years of marketing and PR experience. I dream of being a cast member on Saturday Night Live and working at Disney World as Snow White.
