For Women

Instead of a sad-sack post.

I dealt with Tuesday in a stupid way. I watched the MJ memorial which made me cry. I talked to my mom, cried some more. I’ve definitely not fully come to terms with it, but I don’t want to constantly harp on it, so I have decided to dedicate this post to happiness.

These are things that have made me smile this week.

  • I just bought a glue gun because I wanted to try my hand at hair-bow making. Definitely not my forte, because I am so freaking impatient when it comes to crafts and letting stuff dry. HOWEVER, those little buggers are expensive and ribbon is kind of cheap at Michaels, so I thought I would give it a whirl. Haven’t started doing it yet, but I did take some googly eyes, poof balls and this old hair gel container that Bill uses for loose change and Olivia and I had a ball decorating it with funny faces. After we had finished, she stuck it back on his desk and said: “Mama, I think daddy is going to LOVE it.” It made me feel like a productive mama, even if I have yet to put actual clothes on this morning.
  • Sophia is walking! Six to seven steps at a time. I feel kind of bad, because I can’t pinpoint the date she started taking steps (I’m still trying to work backwards to figure it out) but it happened so fast. She is stumbling around like a drunk after last call, but she is definitely walking (six or seven steps…stumble, pick herself back up, six or seven steps). I also like the fact that she started on July 7th because it is something happy to remember on that date.
  • My mama is coming to visit next week! She’s coming for Sophia’s fantastic Polka-dot themed backyard birthday bash that I still have to put together (I’m halfway done, I promise).
  • Olivia starts swimming lessons tomorrow. She’s so very excited and she asked me “can I sit at the edge of the pool and put my feet in first?” More fun stories about this to follow, I’m sure.
  • I finished reading a book! Finally. I even wrote a review for it on that visual bookshelf application for Facebook. Hmmm…I could repost it here. I wonder if that is allowed. I am always so busy with baby stuff, I seem to never be able to finish reading books I start, so this is an accomplishment.
  • I commented to my mom that my life is 99.9% happy. She responded that there weren’t many people that could say that, so I should feel thankful. Since my .1% is all superficial stuff (losing babyweight, buying a house one day, etc. etc.) I DO feel like the luckiest girl alive and I am very thankful for that.  The rest will fall into place when I least expect it, it always does.
