The end is near!
My youngest had to be picked up from school due a fever that is running through all the kids.
I had so much that I could have done at the house - but instead I brought both my girls home and gave them as much love as I possibly could. I love them and want them to know that no matter what.
I passed up on my to-do list to be who I should every day! I know you may say this doesn't count...but I am counting it!
My husband was with a friend wasting away the day. At this house a baby shower was going on inside for people I had never met. I went to pick up Nick and stepped inside to say hi - and saw that the baby had been given some rain forest themed items - and I had one I could add! I think her name was Becky and I know she is having a girl...and now they have a crib musical. light up thingy from me :)
I have always wanted to be a mom that read to my kids as my parents always did to me. I just never got around to it as I do all my stuff for the next day the evening prior. Bedtime is more of a rush than it is anything. I decided that last night would be the beginning of my reading. I let Ryley pick her book and Abby even sat and listened - and she held onto my arm the whole time, so I knew I was doing something right by giving them my time.
When we were done Abby asked me if I could read her "God Book" to her after Ryley went to bed. I had tears in my eyes...how awesome is that? When Ryley went to bed we read the story of Adam and Eve out of the Children's Bible she received as a gift. I loved it.
Okay - a lot of you know about my love of Starbucks Coffee. I have gift cards all the time, but since I never go there much anymore (the 30 minute drive to get there just sucks) I hate to see them lying around. This morning my girlfriend Hooters said she "needed" a Starbucks. I had a gift card in my car and passed it along...why let a good thing go to waste - and since she is one of my best-good-friends, I didn't mind at all....I hope she likes her coffee this morning!
What should I do for next month???
