Hooray For Me!!!

I was a good mom today!

It seems like I've had so many "off" days lately, and today I finally get to sing my own praises!

I got the kids to school on time without any hurt feelings. I gave Nathan and Alexandra a bath. I fed them a tasty lunch that they both gobbled up. Then I put Alexandra down for a nap and went outside and played with Nathan - and it was actually a lot of fun!

Nathan wanted to throw a ball back and forth, but he isn't very good at catching, so it soon turned into a game of chase where we tried to hit each other with the ball. The one-on-one time was great and he really was living it up. I loved seeing him giggle so hard and just run to his heart's content. After we played chase I pushed him on the swing for a VERY long time. He couldn't get enough of it.

We finally had to go inside because it was time to go pick up the girls from school. When we came home, I made banana bread, visited with my visiting teachers, made stir fry for dinner, and then took Athena and Samantha to their SEPs (parent teacher conferences). Again, it was great to have some focused time with each one of them as they got to listen to praises from their teachers.

When we came home, again I went outside and played with the kids before it was time to come in and get them ready for bed. Then I went to work out.

I have to document this day because honestly, there aren't very many days that just seem to go great. Sure we had a few fights to break up today and little corrections here and there, but overall it just went really well. I'm also so excited to have nice, warm weather. I'm sure we still have a few cold spells to make it through, but for now I'm not complaining!

That's a great idea for you to write this down. Even on days that are not that great, you're still a good mom. It's definitely nice to have a really good day every once in a while, though. Maybe I might be inspired by you...wait and see. :)
