I don't have much to say, but I think it is important to recognize and appreciate the good days when they happen. Not that I have a whole lot of BAD days...probably just average days. Anyway, Haylie's been going through a phase lately where, as soon as she wakes up, she wants fruit snacks or cookies. We don't eat fruit snacks or cookies for breakfast in this house, so for the last couple weeks, each day has started out with a major meltdown - that's not fun before 8:00 a.m. Well, today, no meltdown - yippee! Haylie's cousin Tyler came over for a playdate and they played very well together - I even made homemade play-doh!! Then came naptime - she didn't want to go to bed, but I just put her in bed and closed her door. A few minutes passed, then I heard the door open, heard her go potty, flush the toilet, close her door again, and soon she was asleep! THEN, after about an hour, she got up (she usually sleeps for about 2 hours) and wanted juice. I said, "OK, you can have some juice, but then you need to go back to bed". Hahaha, I thought - like THAT is going to happen. So, she drank her juice, walked down the hall, crawled back in bed and slept for 2 more hours!! I was shocked! When she got up, what did she ask for? Cantaloupe! A healthy snack! I am so proud of her. It's days like these that make me sooo grateful to be a mom and so grateful for the sweet spirit that I have been entrusted to raise. Looking forward to a similar tomorrow *knock on wood*.
