Thankful Thursday- stay-at-home mom style

This could be my family and, yes, they do smile when I make chocolate cake, but only after the minis fight over who gets to lick the beater with the most frosting. And I don't think I've ever worn a dress to bake. Just saying. So today I'm keeping it real as a 39 1/2 year old (I so hate that 1/2 these days!)and posting REAL things I am thankful for on March 4, 2010. This is my space. This is my list.

1- My push-up bras.
2- My muscle class instructors. (Except Laura. She's evil.)
3- My concealer stick.
4- The hours of 9:15-12:15 Monday through Thursday when I'm mini-free and somewhat sane.
5- Self-tanner. Winter, it's been fun, but I'm losing interest in you.
6- That I can happily walk down the baby product aisle and not have to stop.
7- Pinot Grigio (don't worry, only 1-2 nights a week! I drink red the other nights. SO KIDDING!!! Couldn't resist.)
8- That we have graduated from playgroup so I don't have to host any more.
9- Mr. Pink's job. This should have ranked a lot higher!
10- That my minis love me and thank God for me every night even on the days I feel like my daily mom progress report shows "needs improvement."

So, be honest, what are you thankful for today? If you've never commented, please do.

Love all of these!!! Currently I'm thankful that this pregnancy is going as well as it is. B/c I work in healthcare, I'm constantly afraid of things that "could" happen even though it's been perfectly fine so far.

Thanks for this post. I needed to read some of these things - going through lots and it makes me think of lots of things I have to be thankful about. I really need to post this and get it off my chest but it's hard to not always be positive sometimes. I don't want to have people see me as a negative person- I truly am blessed in so many ways.
