A Short Memory

Hey Everybody!

I (we--it took not only me but both of my boys) spent today taking care of our precious 3 yo cousin, Noah. He is an absolute doll, but my goodness, I have a short memory when it comes to just how much time and energy those little ones can eat up! I have no idea how we accomplished anything in those early days of homeschooling when my kids were just beginning. Danya was four when we started gradually adding some school time to the structure of our day. Now that I think about it, I'm not really sure how anything at all got done. But we had fun! And those days that seemed so long and draining are now the sweetest memories.

The best part of my day today was reading to Noah just before his nap. He went to sleep really quickly, but I kept reading for a while because it's been a long time since I read Richard Scarry's Wide Wide World! LOL! And then I just sat and held that sweet boy and rocked for a while because it's been a long time since I rocked a three-year-old boy. I am still pretty good at it, just sayin'. :)

What was the best part of your day?

I just loved this post. Nothing feels better than a clean sleeping baby (or young toddler) in your lap. wow.

We went to the pool today, and had a fun time...for 4 hours!

Oh girl, you can come on over anytime and read to and rock my 3 yr old. Better yet, I'll just run her up there to about a whole week, LOL!!

My almost 8 month old daughter gave me three slobbery kisses without me prompting her. It was the first time she had done that and looked quite pleased with herself. That was the best part of my day!
