At my MoPs group this morning we had a mom speak about gratitude and general thankfulness. Coincidentally I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately.
Not only have I been thinking more about the moments that usually pass me by, but I have been trying to make the most out of each day. Most Monday’s involve MoPs, then home for a nap (sometimes for both twin and I) then the rest of the day is usually wasted playing around the house or watching tv.
Cooper is totally obsessed with the gym playcenter…but he just calls it the gym. We haven’t gone in a few weeks due to travel and illness so he’s been asking just about every single day. After we got home, the kids had a bite to eat and we headed back out to the gym. I dressed to go running but the sunshine and clear water was calling my name! I have been so exhausted today but knowing my kids were in good hands and happy to be here allowed me to relax with style. Perhaps I should have removed my shoes 🙂
The day was still so gorgeous so we stopped at our favorite neighborhood park on the way home. Swings or “wings” were a big hit!
The best part about the day was that I found multiple opportunities to stand back and soak in the amazing moments I’m having with my babies!
