Today, I am thankful that Danielle’s husband Kyle was able to hold Ina on his shoulders for the parade. I mean, I’m tough, but I don’t think I would have been able to enjoy the parade while wearing Cora, holding Ina on my shoulders, and making sure Ina didn’t accident’y kick Cora in the face.
I am thankful that I have been able to T25-it in the evening after work the past few days. My in-laws are sleeping in our living room to keep from having to use the stairs, so I can’t exercise before the sun comes up. I am also thankful for the extra sleep I have been getting, which still never seems like enough.
I am thankful that my friend Kim taught me how to “do” my eyebrows and gave me a few make-up brushes that make me feel like an artist every morning, which is so much fun considering I used to put my eyeshadow on with my fingers. So, if you notice I am a little more Mimi-ish, now you know why.
I am thankful that Cora finally found her thumb. She has been trying to find a way to comfort herself for a few months now, and even though she will sometimes take a binkie, she will actually put herself to sleep when she finds her thumb. (I completely understand I will regret saying that in a year, but right now sleep prevails.)
I am thankful that Ina still has some “baby” moments. She turns three in less than a month, and every day she feels more like a kid and less like a toddler. So yesterday, when she was doing her “math homework” on my CostCo receipt while wearing a tiara and saying, “You can call me Princess Aurora,” I had to giggle when I saw she had a pull-up wedgie.
I am thankful that my work email comes on my phone and I can correct mistakes I make when I am awake at 2 am feeding Cora.
I am thankful for CostCo rotisserie chicken.
I am thankful for all the help I have with the girls. Our support system seems to go on for miles.
What are you thankful for?
