Today was a pretty good day. It was about 73 degrees! We had a few highs and lows.
High- Mini#2 continues to hug/kiss me all day long. It is sooooo sweet. You may be thinking blah, blah, but this is a BOY. He's 3 now. He won't do this forever so I'm savoring the attention I've been getting lately.
Low- We went to the bank today and mini#2 told a woman she was little. She was just a tad short. He has no filter on his mouth these days. Yesterday, I stuffed him into the stroller (he's too slow when we both walk) and went for a walk. I was checking new voicemail I discovered I had on my cell phone when I heard him say "hello" to a woman smoking on her front porch. I said "hello", too and went back to listening to the message when I heard him say "We don't like smoking" to her! I tried to correct him and she said "That's good. It's a bad thing." I apologized and picked up my pace. I was mortified!
High- Mini#1 was one of three in his class to be selected to go to a special reading computer lab every Wednesday with other students from the other three first grade classes. He's being rewarded for his high reading level. Made me so proud of him. He couldn't wait to tell me when he got home. He had the biggest grin on his face. Sorry, had to brag a little.
Low- We met our good friends for dinner at our favorite Mexican place for one last get together before they move to S.C. tomorrow. We've been going to this place for a while together. 5 kids, 4 adults and good food. The wife, out of all of our neighbors, is the one most like me. We have similar tastes, ideas and laugh a lot when we're together. I'll miss them all. Saying goodbye really sucks!
High- After dinner I rushed mini#1 to church and I sat in the car and read Atonement while I waited. Book club is in a couple weeks. This is a slow book, but shhhh, don't tell anyone, I watched the movie last week so I'm set. Anyway, on the way home, mini#1 and I saw 2 deer on the side of a quiet road. I stopped while one crossed and we both got to stare at them for a few moments. They stared back! It was exciting. They're so beautiful. I feel guilty that so many houses are being built in the area and running them out of their habitat.
A day with highs and lows is a good day. Each make you a better person. Life is all about the challenges, the smiles, the frowns, and filtering a 3 year old's mouth!
