What I'm Thankful for Today....

A husband who can't wait to get home at the end of his day. Who is understanding, and helpful and funny and still my very best friend.

A little boy whose cuteness makes me want to eat him up on a daily basis. Whose enthusiasm for everything life offers is contagious and who makes me laugh at least 40 times a day.

A little girl with a constant glimmer in her eye. The one that you are supposed to have as a little person who loves and trusts her world and is having the time of her life. Who is shocking me daily with her brains, creativity and overall hilariousness.

For another year of health and happiness for our entire family. Always forever grateful.

For my very best girlfriends who I cherish so much, who make me understand myself better, who help me through the tough things in life, and who make life one big laugh-fest.

We head out on vacation in four days, to Disney World. I am so, so grateful we can take this trip and have this moment with my family. It's a place I think of when I think of my happiest place on earth. It's a place I think I will remember moments from when I am an 80 year old woman. It's a full circle moment for me, as some of my greatest family memories came from there, and we are passing those on to Lucy and Tommy. Where Tommy can be his ultimate little boy self, and Lucy can let her hair fly on crazy roller coasters. And the only thing on your agenda for the day is pure fun with the people you love the most. What can be better?

Tuesday, November 09, 2010 are a PLG....

So you got your cast off yesterday....and you still sort of acted like it was broken. I know it's stiff and odd feeling (I can only imagine) but you are being super PLG about it.

You were so excited to wear long sleeve again (after a month), that we had to pack a new shirt to change into at the Orthopedic office. You wanted to look pretty for school and also wore a new skirt.

Because of the arm feeling weird, you proceeded to pull your skirt up and down with one hand when going potty - which, therefore, made the button pop off on your skirt.

Then, after school, you were butt happy and handed me this ginormous baggy with one small button in it and showed me your tummy where Mrs. Battle had pinned the skirt.

Then you got to go to Kohl's with Meema and pick out a new outfit. You picked out this ridiculous pink sparkly shirt and grey leggings that you LOVE. Oh, and it included a belt attached to the shirt. For no reason.

You were so excited this morning to wear the new stylish, outfit and go to the "Theater Workshop" after school in your fancy outfit.

For some reason, I have just found you, the outfits, the arm still being held like it's broken, your excitement and the button situation as SUPER PLG. you, Luce!!

My Happiest Place on Earth... only 19 days away.

Disney World, here we come!

I Ran By...

I ran by your school this morning, on a sunny, crisp fall day. I thought you might have recess and I was right.

Out of school boomed a happy little girl in a fuzzy pink coat. She found me quickly (oddly) against the fence, waving and smiling.

I fended off thoughts that I looked like a creepy stalker. I loved every minute.

"Mom! Why are you here? Are you running?"

"Yes! And I realized you might be here so I thought I'd stop for a kiss!"

We kissed through the fence. We laughed.

"See Mom? I told you I wear my coat on the playground!"

"I see that! I believed you! Well...I guess I'll go now."

"O.k. Mom! See you after!"

A friend asked her for help and, in a motherly tone, she started to help him find something lost and important to him.

And I ran away from the school, fighting back tears.
Not because I was sad to leave you, but because I was so dang proud of you.
I love you, Luce.

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.
