grateful tidbits, #2

  • *Lexi, curled up next to me with a book. I understand her in the quiet; she is still and calm.
  • *Zack racing to open the door for a woman with a baby, without prompting. There's a proud grin on his face.
  • *Witnessing a PTA father's face light up when his daughter comes in the room. He waits patiently for her to acknowledge him, and gives her a nod.
  • *Kissing on my 2 year-old nephew's neck. He doesn't shoo me, not yet. Aunt Sissy comes out 'Aunt Didsy'.
  • *Laying in bed, after 7 am (!), with Greg, jabbering - making up for all the days he is out of town. The kids finally pounce on us and the day begins.

Lovely, as always.

And AGAIN you-know-who visits your site...I'm so jealous. I think. Maybe there is something wrong with my brain.

See you in a bit for more stuff to be grateful for :)

I love the bed pouncing. They are amongst my favorite memories with my children.

Yay for the quiet and the little things.

What is it about a baby's neck? I still make Lillian let me scrunch in there for kisses and she still tolerates me :) This won't last long I'm sure--

Ahhh yes, those are the moments that take one's breath away.
