But today, I'm just not feeling it.
I think the kiddos (and the adults) are having a few issues adjusting to life after the holidays. Maybe it's the terrible twos settling in a little early in the twins. Yep, the favorite word around here is, "no!" Maybe Lil Bit just needs a little more sleep than she's getting as we adjust to getting up before 6.
I just want to be warm again. Yes, I know North Carolina isn't known for cold weather...and a lot of you are experiencing real cold. But there's a reason why this girl likes living in the south, and trust me, it isn't the grits. I hate being cold all the time.
But to shake myself out of this funk, I though I'd try to share something that makes me smile right now about each of the people who live in my house:
My husband: How he spent two of his days off last week helping my parents around their house...unprompted by anyone.
Lil Bit: How she's super excited about all the crafts and coloring books she received for Christmas! Between her crafts and her creating "restapees," I figure I only need to work on this blog for a couple more years before I can hand the reins over to her.
Sweet Pea: How she loves to snuggle with her mama. Enough said. I'm going to be sad when she outgrows my lap.
Princess Pea: How she is trying out new words all the time. And how all three of my girls want to read a book..all the time!
There. I feel better. I guess counting the blessings in my life...is a blessing in itself.
