So tonight I am glad it is Thursday. It is my favorite day of the week by the way. It is my favorite because tomorrow is Friday and Fridays just rock in my book. They are the day we mentally prepare for the weekend. We get an extra splash of cream in our coffee and we wake up smiling because we know the weekend is near. I haven’t been myself these last couple of weeks and I am still trying to get my mojo back but today I am thankful for perfect little birthdays with calls from friends and family, virtual wishes and cake with my little (well big) family.
I am so thankful for friends who stand in and educate little minds and hearts about that extra chromosome and all the goodness it brings to our life when this Mama is just not yet strong enough to do it. AND for brothers who love their sister so much they convince 28 kids to donate to a charity that will help their sister and her friends (Gigis Playhouse). Swelling with pride.
I am thankful for all the beautiful sibling pictures flying around celebrating the unique relationships siblings have.
I am so thankful for after nap hugs from big brothers and before bed activities that incorporate my oldest and my youngest children.
I am thankful for blog sponsors who develop awesome tools that give other Mamas the opportunity to feed their children balanced meals! This plate is the coolest. It not only provides a reminder of how to feed our children well but to encourage the child to climb the tower to the treat! Love that!
Grace had a great time talking about the triangle and the colors on the plate. It made the meal educational and we all love that! You can check the GROUPIE plate out on Amazon!
I may not be on my A game but everything around me is. I think that is how life keeps pushing on. When one is up and the other is down we all kind of balance each other out.
Today I have another sweet baby girl who desperately needs a forever family. She deserves a forever family. We have done such a fantastic job sharing these babies in the past that The Cradle has once again asked us to help. Please take a moment and read about this sweet girl Alexis and share her story. Give her the chance that we were given. The chance to be loved and to give love.
