It was a good day.

This post is from May 15, 2014.  I am not sure why I didn’t publish it, but I found it in drafts and I am publishing it now.  Between then and now there have been some HARD days.  Days with tears.  Days with yelling.  Days with mommy guilt.  So, it is nice to remember that each day I get the chance to start over.  A chance be more patient and loving, and the chance to make it a great day.   Because days like this one I wrote about below — they are magic.

Today was a good day.  I think when people think about being a SAHM, these are the types of days they dream of.  Most days are not like this.  Not even close.  So, I am going to write it down so that next time I have one of the very hard days, the ones where every thing goes wrong, and nothing gets accomplished, and there is a lot of yelling — I can look back and remember that good days happen.  And they are magical.

Today I got to go back to sleep after the morning feeding and Kyle handled the morning routine.

Today the baby took a nap in his crib.

Today a friend came over and we all went for a walk around the neighborhood.

Today the sun was shining bright.

Today she ate lunch and took a nap without a fuss.

Today the baby played quietly on the blanket with his toys and practiced kicking.

Today I got to eat my lunch in peace, while sitting down.

Today I got to take a shower, do my hair, and put on makeup.

Today I got to go to an event at PLU all alone to catch up with friends and celebrate a retirement.

Today I got to watch her play soccer and have fun kicking the ball.

Today I got to tuck her into bed and read her a story.

Today I nursed him to sleep and put him in his crib on the first try.

Today we cleaned up a mess in the house.

Today we spent some time in the evening together.

I feel blessed, and loved, and rejuvenated.  I got to be outside enjoying the sunshine.  I got to socialize with friends and enjoy the company of my children and husband.  I got to relax and I got some things accomplished.  Today was a good day.
