Where Whine Meets Wine

You Do The Same

on June 10, 2011

Today I woke up tired…multiple cups of coffee tired. While I probably won’t drown myself in coffee, I’ll probably remain tired. I don’t know if it was just the knowledge of how far away hubbyman is or what, but I woke up like every 45 minutes throughout the night. So you would think that I would have woken up on the crankier side of the bed, but somehow that didn’t happen. Actually, my children slept in and are in high spirits, and it’s hilarious. Littlest E is in his high chair doing his signature move, which is where he puckers his lips and then sticks them way out. And then when I make that face back to him he laughs hysterically, because obviously it’s the funniest thing he’s ever seen. And my normally high spirited MissE, is in rare form herself. She’s being silly and giggley, and until I started typing this was playing  sweetly with her big brother. Who spent the early part of this morning snuggling and telling me how I was his favorite woman ever. And currently he’s singing a song about he’s going to eat all the peaches and oranges in this town. (Can you guess what he had for breakfast?) While Littlest E has more oranges the pocket of his bib than in his belly. He’s happy just with the moves he can make with his lips, and clapping in sheer joy of his facial movement success. While their have been brief moments of upheaval, I am choosing that today is going to be a good day and I’m going to continue acting like they’re the best versions of themselves, because ultimately, they are. Plus, the studio called and our family pictures are in!

So this is short and sweet because yesterday was kind of the day from hell. I was in a rush trying to clean the house before guests came, and disaster basically ensued until hubbyman got home. Thankfully he’s used to my version of crazy, and knows how to bring me back to reality. At least most of the time. And so today, I am basking in the glow of choosing that today is going to be a terrific day. And I suggest you do the same. It’s amazing the things you CAN choose.
