To that point in my morning, I hadn't a whole lot that I was thankful for. I had awoken at 3:35 with a terrible stomach ache, only to get back to sleep at 4:00. At exactly 4:46am, I hear this through the monitor: "Cough, cough, cough, cough, wheeze, Mamamama! Cough, cough, cough, wheeze, Mamamama!" I tried to lovingly put her back to sleep, but she literally climbed up me and into my arms.
She was just as sweet as pie for the first thirty minutes. We lay on the couch in the dark watching Dora, and I thought to myself, "This is the sweetest child ever." And then the sweetest child ever turned into a screaming diva. All she wanted was me to hold her and walk. Every time I had to put her down to put on my clothes, do my hair, find Hannah's clothes, she screamed so loudly and so violently that had I not seen her throw herself on the floor, I would have thought she was hurt. Needless to say, it was not the way I wanted to start my day!
So today, when I saw Jenny's Thankful Thursday, I knew what I was thankful for. Thankful for the smile back on her face. For the sweet babbling. The hugs and snuggles. And once again, she is the sweetest child ever.
Other things that I am thankful for today~~
*I am an official Weight Watcher for the next 17 weeks. I have the chance and the tools to get healthy.
*Both Sarah and Maddy made the competition cheer squad at school. It means lots of practicing, lots of travel, and lots of money, but they both have such a passion for it. So proud of my girls!
*Tomorrow is a half day of school!
What are you thankful for?
