A Good, Full Day

Family Ties / General Musings

It’s been a good day. I slept in (well, mostly–I forgot to turn my light timer off, so it turned on as usual at 5:30), and then Dude made chocolate cranberry pancakes for breakfast. I picked E up from his friend’s house, and then returned home to cut Girl-E’s hair. (She said a trim, but then once on the stool said she wanted it to her jaw-line, shortened from shoulder-length. I took a deep breath and snip, snip! It actually came out really well, thank God.). After that, we piled into the van and headed off to some friends’ housewarming party. It started off a little slow, and as the only teen in the middle of a bunch of adults and littler kids, E was pretty bored for the first couple hours, but then people settled in and kids started running around and everyone had a blast. At one point, E even picked Dude up over his shoulder and walked around! I also got to hold a 5 month old adorable little girl with the roundest, rosiest cheeks and biggest blue eyes you’ve ever seen. It was pretty quiet on the way home, as it was bedtime and the kids were totally worn out, but of course when we got home meltdowns ensued. Ah, the joys of parenting.

Still, overall, it was one of those days that just makes me smile and my heart feel full, a day in which I’ll go to sleep (very shortly) satisfied and content and grateful.
