I'm always waiting to have something to blog about, but I realized this morning that I need to blog about what I have. That's how a lot of my favorite bloggers do it. Rebecca, Angie, Haylie, Dede. Even NieNie, who's blog I read for the first time last night. I also realized something else. One of the reasons we're here is to inspire each other, either to do something, be something, say something, create something, or just to dream. I was inspired to be better when I read Rebecca's post last night. I'm inspired to find the 'super' in myself when I read Angie's blog. I'm inspired by Haylie who loves her life and family so much that she practically bleeds happiness. I'm inspired by Dede who finds something short, sweet, and precious to blog about almost every day, even if it's only a few sentences, but is always accompanied with a picture. And last night I was inspired by NieNie to start blogging about what I have.
This morning, my husband woke me up my favorite way. Little kisses and snuggles and some good old fashioned lovin'. The best way to wake up is feeling loved and wanted. ^.^ Unfortunately, our son woke up at about the same time and did his morning ritual of standing at his door whining "Mommy!" continuously. >.< THAT is my least favorite way to wake up. After calling to him to go play with his toys or read his books his whining escalated to crying loudly, at which point I groaned and said "For the love of Pete, Ethan!" Hubby got up, scolded Ethan, got him some juice, and came back to me. I hate it when we get mad at Ethan, but the morning whining has GOT to stop! Purely for my own sanity!
After Hubby left for school and I showered, I went out to find that Ethan had fallen back asleep! Bliss! A little extra time to myself! Woohoo!!!! It was the perfect opportunity to sit down and write this blog post.
Our day went something like this:
Ethan slept a few extra hours, but his diaper leaked. Hmm...guess it's now laundry day. While Ethan ate breakfast I randomly decided to clean the upstairs toilets. They're now fresh and sparkly white! I rarely clean the toilets (see: least favorite chore) so this was something to be celebrated! With a nap. LOL
Hubby came home in the afternoon and we all just kind of chilled and did our own thing the rest of the day. Ethan had a late lunch of a peanut butter sandwich and I was thrilled! He even asked for it! Getting this kid to eat is like the most epic battle of all time! After putting Ethan to bed we realized we still hadn't changed the sheets on our bed. As we were putting the fitted sheet on our affectionately nicknamed kitten, Stupid, found it to be a jolly good time chasing and attacking the billowing sheet. We ended up putting the fitted sheet on over her and had our own good time watching her run around chasing our fingertips. After a little while we decided we needed to make the bed the rest of the way so we managed to get her out and tried putting the next sheet on. She thought we were still playing and we ended up making the bed up with her between the two sheets. I love that cat. :) And no worries, we took her out so she wouldn't suffocate or get laid upon.
Well, this post has taken me all day to write. It's now 1:30am and I promised Hubby I'd come to bed soon. Tomorrow looks to be a bright day and I hope to get a few more things done and run some errands. So for now, bonsoir mes amis. May you all have sweet little dreams tonight. ^.^
