Today I am thankful for coffee before toddler.
I love Ina to death, but I have been getting up with Cora at 4ish and then going back to sleep until Ina wakes me up, and sometimes she is a little hard to deal with without caffeine.
I am thankful for walks to and from daycare with the girls. When Ina goes to Danielle’s on Mondays and Wednesdays we have walked there almost every time. It has been such a nice and peaceful time of our day in the morning.
Then in the afternoon Ina gets out of the stroller and a little more adventerous.
I have one more week of maternity leave and then I will have to start driving both girls there. Hopefully we will be able to enjoy a few more afternoon walks after work before the weather gets too cold.
I am thankful for the opportunity to go to the Royals first playoff game tonight! This will be my first time leaving Cora for a significant amount of time and someone might have to drag me out of the house.
I am thankful for bath time smiles. (Thanks Julie for the cute Cora towel!)
I am thankful that Dan smoked a lot of meat on Sunday and even though he is working crazy hours, I feel like I have his help because all I need to do is add a side and dinner is served.
Speaking of Dan’s work, he got a temporary promotion to a supervisor position and has been working crazy hours with the additional training. I am so proud of him, but we sure do miss him. It is weird doing the whole dinner, bath, and bedtime routine without him.
I am thankful for the promise of vacation next year. It is a while away, but I can already smell that ocean air!
What are you thankful for?
