Over here, it’s considered a bonus when half the sink is clean and empty without dishes. We are most in sync when us three are sitting around the table talking and eating, except we are rarely there and generally picnicking on a blanket on the floor with stuffed animal deer or unicorn surrounding. Our ups can transition easily into downs with a toddler, but today was just so good. The Beane was so happy today, singing and playing dress up, and we just sat and rested on the couch for an hour and read books. The morning started with her blowing raspberries for on the baby inside my belly and Max and I couldn’t help but bust out laughing repeatedly. Messy=wonderful. Imperfect=good. There is much to look for to be grateful for, always. I love that choice.
