It’s All Good

Did you pray really hard for me or something?  Well thanks, because it worked!  My days have been significantly better. 

My baby slept for like 3 hours straight during the day and I got some cleaning done.  There are no longer big colorful cereal chunks under the table. 

And the endless assortment of crayons/markers/colored pencils/ coloring books/ manuscript practice books/activity books/ construction paper/ journal paper/ arts n craft supplies has been neatly sorted and organized in bins, containers, and boxes and neatly placed within 2 cupboards. 

 I got my coupons organized into 2 Trapper Keeper binders and have too many!  (Any one need Red Plums, bc I’ve got connections.  I seriously get 10+ each week!). 

I busted out the Janine Brady cassette tapes and played them for my kids.  They loved it!  We marched around in the big parade and played animal charades.  Fun mom times!  Naptime was welcomed with a smile (which took less than 5 minutes to turn into a tired sleeping drooly face).

I got some much needed me time with the gals at sewing lessons on Thurs night.  I love just chatting it up with the girls and catching up on the happenings of dating, news in the former ward, projects we wished we could sew.

And today I took the kiddos to the Lied Children’s Museum AND the Berenstain Bear exhibit was still there!  How lucky is that? (We were the Berenstain Bears for Halloween this year).

So, the bad days happen, but they make the good days so much more enjoyable and appreciated.  Thank you bad day, you really don’t happen as often as you used to, but it’s all good.  Glad we can get back on track and enjoy the better moments in life.

Day at the Museum

So my ward has weekly playgroups and then monthly field trips for moms/ dads with little kiddos who aren’t in school.  We went to the Lied Children’s Discovery Museum and seriously could have stayed until closing and still had tons to do!  My boys loved it!  I met a friend who I haven’t seen since Jr. High and of course, we pick right back up where we left off and got caught up in the short amount of time.   This was definitely one place we will return to in the summer since there’s so much to do and see and for all ages!
