I don't even know that I can pinpoint one aspect of this day which has made it what it is, but I do know I can walk away saying, "That was a good day." Here are some of the high points:
- Helping Micaiah create slime after watching Sid the Science Kid do the same in his class and seeing her joy as she allowed the gooey matter to ooze over her fingers repeatedly for a solid half hour.
- Enjoying quality one-on-one time playing with my little man while his big sister was occupied with said slime.
- Feeling productive by hanging in Micaiah's room the ten-cent clock and curtain panels I scored during Dollar General's summer clearance on Tuesday. Actually installing something within the same week it was purchased is fairly rare for Messie me.
- Reading through Ina May's Guide to Childbirth for the first time. It may be a bit hippie and cult-like in the beginning, but now I'm wishing I'd read this sooner. Can't wait to have this baby!
- Watching the Cardinals win their eleventh World Series in the year 2011 - little things like matching numbers make me happy (as if a Series Title wouldn't be enough).
Yes, my friends, 'twas a good day of enjoying the little things.
