Red Letter Day

It’s a great day at our house! I’ll admit it’s been several days since I slept more than an hour and a half solid (do they some how play tag from their separate rooms at night?), but it was a good day none the less.

We started out with our MOPS meeting—a nice chance for me to be with other ladies. Kate loves to play with other kids too, so she is always happy about going to moppets. Kate even used the potty while she was there—yea Kate! Gabby spent her second day in the nursery there and did well.

The weather started off cold (26) this morning, but was beautiful this evening. We took the girls on a good long walk after dinner. It’s so nice to not have to wear heavy winter coats! It’s supposed to be even warmer tomorrow. I’ll ignore the call for snow this weekend for now and enjoy the warm weather and sunshine while we can get it.

Then this evening I was playing in the floor with Gabby and sat her up and she stayed on her own. Another milestone. It goes so quickly. I’m trying to treasure every minute, but I also don’t want to hold back my children when they are ready to move forward. It’s a delicate balance that I’m trying so hard to maintain. How do you tell your two year old she’s not old enough to read? You don’t. You just take I slow and when she’s bored, remember that she is only two and let it go until she asks again.
