This is one of the reasons I am thankful for this wonderful world of blogging. I am able to document the beauty of these most precious of days, which are flying by more quickly that I could have ever imagined. One day last week, I picked up my camera and took a few pictures of an ordinary day in our lives...a day like so many others... gone forever...existing only here and in my heart.
Rise and shine...good thing I am an early riser. The kids...not so much...
Once the big kids were fed and on their way, Flynn and I made beds and straightened bathrooms.
Then Daddy was off to work...On this day, Flynn said, "There goes my daddy!"
And yes, my daughter was wearing Christmas jammies in May. Don't ask.
Once Daddy was off to work, Flynn and her blankie Taggie had breakfast with Little Bear.
I love how she holds the little tag in her hand.
I don't even want to think about the day when Little Bear is not on my television every morning.
Then we mixed up some brownies for my mom and dad. It was my dad's turn to take dessert for Bingo, and we made brownies for brownie sundaes.
After that, we threw in a few loads of laundry...
and Flynn played a bit while I ate my cereal and checked in with you all!
After lunch, Flynn helped me make my coffee, then we had our coffee and milk break.
This has been my magic number for years now...it is the exact time I need to leave to pick up the kids.
Finally dressed and on our way...with all necessary items in tow...Taggie, Teddy, Peanut Butter Bear, balloon, and her Nintendo DS.
Finally home and ready for our afternoon walk...after this I ran down to help my mom prepare for Bingo. Then I picked up dinner on my way home. Rhett was already inside watching one of his new birthday movies!
Dinner. Steve was working late and it was a dinner in front of the tv night.
You do that sometimes too, right? : )
After dinner, it was clean up, bath and jammies and tv before bed. It was a chilly rainy night, or we would have been outside. I don't mind a tv night once in awhile, though. This was the last picture I took before I fell asleep on the sofa...I may or may not have washed my face before crawling into bed.
And that my friends, is a day in my life. Thanks for hanging in there. And I would love to see one of yours sometime too! : )
