WAKING up...

...on the wrong side of the bed.
You know what I am talking about. So this morning has been one of those mornings. I was suppose to work this morning...got up and showered and then got the phone call that they weren't going to need me this morning (kinda buggin at 5:45 a.m.). Continue the morning...blah, blah heading home from the gym Vanny gets a little lippy with me = talking back and so I say, "Look kiddo, I love you but I'm in charge. You don't talk to me that way. That really hurts mommy's feelings. I do alot of things for you...get your breakfast, let you watch cartoons, you have fun toys, I take you to play with your friends (yadda, yadda) please don't treat mommy that way. OKAY????" Continue home...Lucy drops her second bomb of the day, finally her naptime (praise!). The house is a diaster...I must have been mumbling (or yelling) about how the house was dirty, I'm freezing cold, ya know all the "waking up on the wrong side of the bed things". I stomp to the shower and get in / get out, grab my hot cocca and sit on my bed watching CNN and wondering how I am going to get rid of my attitude problem for the rest of the day. Savannah walks in the room...over to the bed and grabs my hand..."Look mom, I love you. I give you hugs, I take care of Lucy, I'd be patient for you, I buyed you things at Target, and come look I cleaned up the downstairs for you." Takes my hand, we walk downstairs. I hug her, kiss her, grab a Diet Coke and we play a game of Memory.

That is pretty much the sweetest thing I have heard all day! (go figure since i have been sitting in an office doing accounting stuff....not much sweet things to have happen)! It made my day to think about all those things that I have to look forward to --- i can't wait for a little one who talks and does those nice things!!!!

CAMI!!!!!! I was soooo happy to get a message from you! I love seeing your family, you are so beautiful! Do you run? I thought I saw a picture of you doing a race? I love running now, and think we should do a race together if so. :) It probably was me if it was to Phoenix, I used to travel there once a month for work. I'm mad at you for not yelling out!

Ok, so yeah, that was pretty dang special. Maddox about knocked my nose off the other day, all the while scratching my upper eyelid. OUCH! It wasn't on purpose, but in pain I grabbed his little cheeks, and told him "YOU HURT MAMA!" He started balling, and said something to the effect, "WANT TO KISS IT BETTER!" Bout broke my heart. What sweet little kids we have.
