[Mustard chicken, roasted squash and beets, and salad greens]
In my mind I have plans to write here more than two days a week. I even have full paragraphs I want to say. However, life happens, so here I am, thankful that I have time set aside to jot down what I am thankful for.
I am thankful for antibiotics.
Ina woke up Tuesday morning with a double ear infection and double pink eye.
She kept on telling me her ears didn’t hurt and that she wanted her eyes to stay pink because pink is her favorite color and that she was OK and to leave her alone! Obviously, she felt great.
She is doing much better now, and, much to Ina’s dismay, her eyes are no longer pink.
I am thankful that Dan had yesterday off work so he could stay home with our still-infectious kid. Being a working mom is hard in so many ways, but one of them is that I am absent a lot more now that I have kids. Yesterday was one of those days when I really needed to be at work, and I am thankful I was there.
I am thankful for Winter Shape Up! I have been following along with the workouts and have had fun mixing it up and having someone else plan what I do that day.
Speaking of working out, I am thankful for my mom who stopped by the house for 15 minutes after I had been cooped up with the girls all day so that I could go on a run. Although it was “just 15 minutes” it felt glorious and I ran my frustrations right out of me.
I am thankful for Miss Mikelea at Ina’s swim school. Yesterday was Ina’s first day of swim lessons and things didn’t go exactly as planned. However, Miss Mikelea swooped in with M&M’s and stories about Elsa’s castle to save the day and stop Ina from screaming, “DADDY I NEED YOU” at the top of her lungs while Dan was holding onto the bottom of his chair so he didn’t go in and save her.
I am thankful for Cora and her playfulness.
Look at that face! The girl just wants to go places. However, her silly legs aren’t ready yet. I really need to take advantage of the few weeks I have left when I can put her down and she will stay in one place.
So many other things to be thankful for, but it is time to get ready for the day. I hope your’s is blessed! <3
