I am feeling really happy this morning. Yay!
It feels like I've been stuck in a string of bad days. Nothing major, no real problems. I just felt down. I was stuck in the monotony of motherhood and the stress of 3 needy small children. I know you know what I'm talking about even if you only have one. I've been feeling like crying and yelling each night by the time Trent got home from work. Yesterday I was emotionally spent from talking out (okay we emailed) some issues with Trent that were bothering me. I was glad to have my feelings out and feel understood when we were all done.
Well, last night was Bunko night. I won this darling prize- a necklace for Charlotte. The charm says drama queen. I love it. On top of that I got to talk to some of the funnest, cutest, coolest girls until 11 pm. Way past my usual bed time. ( I'm a loser.)
Henry had another good night, which means that I did too. I woke up warm and comfortable to the sounds of darling baby squeals. ( I didn't even mind that it was 6:15 am, I'm used to that now.) My wonderful husband took care of the big kids' milk, turned on cartoons, and took Henry out to socialize with the kids like he usually does. I was allowed a little more time in my warm bed enjoying the darling sounds. It felt so nice today. I allowed myself to enjoy it and not dread getting out of bed. I was happy to have Henry join me in bed for his "boo-boo milk", he was absolutely adorable and sweet.
Now I just hope I can keep up this positive outlook for the rest of the day. Wish me luck!
