The best company
It has been a long day. When Trevor suggested he forego the rental car this week, and leave me home for a couple of days carless, I quickly agreed. With the pool, the playground, and Walmart all within just a few steps, I knew we would be okay. What I didn't count on was the rain. And the mud. So today we have been trapped inside. It's too wet for a walk, and walking is our only option. Not that I'm not thankful for the rain. I really am thankful.
But with the day worn away, and pizza on the way, I think we will be fine. Seth is napping soundly (in spite of the wisdom that suggests you never let your toddler sleep past four... It is now 5:10). Katelin is singing and chattering away in her bedroom -- the quiet time alarm went off, but she is enjoying herself too much to want to leave her sweet alone time. I love listening to her.
"I want to stay in quiet time for a long long time because I'm having too much fun," she is explaining to her toys right now.
My kids saved me today. Like I said, it was a long day. But I just couldn't keep keep from letting a little bit of their happiness creep in. It is just too hard to resist. Bless their happy little hearts. Not even a rainy day stuck in a small apartment can get them down.
