Ever have a day where absolutely everything goes your way? That was today for me. I woke up feeling rested, as Binary Boy slept through the night. I had a good hair day. My morning espresso was especially yummy. I got to put in a load of laundry before we left for our class at The Little Gym. It was super fun, as usual. I had a wonderful chat with the instructor, who also happens to be the owner, while Binary Boy ate a snack there. As a bonus, the class tires him out so much so that I have to keep him awake on the drive home! He then usually falls asleep while I nurse him down for his nap.
Now, normally, I get on the computer or read mail and pay bills while he naps. Today, however, I started reading NurtureShock on my Kindle (it was recommended to me by a friend of mine) and started to feel tired myself, so I also took a nap. An hour and a half later, Binary Boy woke up. Amazingly, he napped for 2 hours!
Then it was time for lunch. I had another espresso, which seemed better than the first one I had this morning. After lunch, I transfered the laundry and we played for a bit, before heading out for a walk. It was a balmy 74 degrees today and sunny, with hardly any wind. Pretty much perfect weather.
We walked to the mailboxes, then we played in the park next to them for almost an hour. There were two other boys there, playing with toy helicopters, while their mom chatted on the cell phone. Binary Boy had fun watching the helicopters spin up and then crash down for a bit. We headed home after he started to get hungry.
Dinner was delicious, but simple. Baked chicken and rice/veggie pilaf. Binary Boy really loved the pilaf! After dinner, we played for a bit as a family and shortly after it was bubble bath time (not for me unfortunately – heehee)! Bath, stories, then bed, and, now, here I am trying to record it so I can remember it forever.
After putting it all into words, today doesn’t seem that special, but it was so very special to me. It was relaxed and all-around perfect. I hope we have many more days like it.
