Thank you all for the encouragement yesterday.
Today is much better – no dead mice, no family news, happier children, it’s cooler (about 73 degrees now!) and beautiful out, plus it’s Friday! Nate is heading home early today and we’re going to the mountains for a couple hours. I told him yesterday that I need to just get away for a bit and that sounds like the perfect remedy for me!
I should also add that Nate gets full credit for making up for the tuna burger yesterday – he offered to get me anything I wanted and was very sweet yesterday. He came home early, helped with the kids, and took Nathan to karate practice, so I was happy.
I am also convinced that Emily does not like the heat. She has been incredibly whiny & grumpy the past few days. Today she is in a great mood – happy & smiling & cheerful. She didn’t whine the entire time we took our walk like she has the past few days – she even told me “I HAPPY today, Mom!” The only difference that I can tell is it’s cooler today. Not that I blame her, it certainly is nicer today! Up here, we don’t often go weeks on end where it’s 80+ degrees every day without a break.
By the way, am I the only one who thinks the way little girls talk is the cutest thing? I feel like I should start correcting her grammar so she’ll learn to talk properly, but she’s so cute, I don’t want to!
She says things like “I happy today, Mom!”
“No, I not fall, Mom!”
“Her miss me!” (referring to her puppy)
SO cute and I just don’t have the heart to correct her!
