And as I lay in my bed on this fine Sunday morning, this is exactly why I am thankful. I awoke to the sounds of my children's voices, but they were in the next room asking for Daddio. It isn't that I don't want them to ask for me, but it sure it nice to have him taking the reins. Mini-Me is going through a Mommy only phase, so it is also a bonus for the Mister to have her undivided attention without me pulling that away. The K-Man likes to address people by their name with every statement, and for some reason "Daddio this," and "Daddio that" sounds much sweeter on my day off.
I am thankful for the quiet in my room, even with the din coming from the next room. (Sorry, love the word din... Not used nearly enough in my opinion!). I can take these moments for myself and well, write this! No one is pulling on my arm, asking for the iPad, the xBox, breakfast, etc. In other words, I can actually think.
I am thankful that I have an attached bath to my bedroom, so I can also maybe sneak in a bath ALONE. Ha! Mini-Me L-O-V-E-S bath time, but so do I. Which leads me to being thankful for the TV that we had installed over my garden soaking tub because not only do I get a bath alone, but also to watch something other than Disney Jr.
Finally, I am thankful that even though I could have slept all this time, it isn't even 9AM. I still have the whole day ahead with the 3 loves of my life. Have a beautiful day all!
