I am thankful that the weather is starting to turn for the better (with the exception of the next few days). Now I actually take showers, get dressed and go out into the world. The kids and I can walk to school more often and spend more time at the playground. In a few weeks, I may be out and about every day.
I am thankful for my dad. When things were really going pear shaped, he came and helped out it a big way. Thanks Dad.
I am thankful for a king size bed. I seriously don’t remember that last time I woke up and there wasn’t an extra person (or two) in there. No wonder I always have a backache.
I am thankful that my kids are doing so well in school. We went to conferences last night and found out that along with doing very well on the reading assessment, Teddy got all the answers correct on the math assessment, just don’t ask him to get his shoes. He straddles that very fine line between genius and madness every day. Maizie of course excelled in reading (that’s why I couldn’t read 50 Shades while she was sitting next to me).
I am thankful that Stella has a fiery personality and her own fashion sense. She wants what she wants; watch out if you stand in her way. There may be hitting, kicking, throwing, tears, apologies, threats, pushing, and foot stomping but through all that Ted and I can’t help but turn around and laugh because that squeaky little voice and her fury is hysterical.
