Best Present Ever
First thing in the morning, cherub 1 started what was going to be the missthebustantrum. I stopped her and told her all I wanted for my birthday this year was a great day where she smiled, didn't have a tantrum and made the bus on time. Seriously, that was ALL I wanted. She sighed and obliged. I told hubby during our date last night. She gave me the best birthday present EVER. He laughed hard because I was actually serious.
Lots of New-ness
New Year, new age, we'll have 2 new careers (hubby is embarking on a new career in 2 weeks as well), new hair cut, new routines, new bus drivers, new daycare. Yikes.
*Cherub 1 starred in her classroom play. She was adorable. I will post pictures soon. Being a notsoconfident person in life, I was amazed by her confidence and true happiness as she shined reading her lines. Maybe theatre is part of her future?
*Cherub 2 went to the play and was soooooo good. He watched the play intently and even asked cherub 1 a question about it after. I was so proud of him for being so well behaved and quiet during the 1/2 hr (which is like a lifetime to him) play. He is growing up.
*Last night I got a little more than 3 inches cut off my hair. I got a new sleek cut for my new job that I start on Monday (eek). Cherub 3 woke up on my bday and said "Mommy, I love your hair. It is pretty." He is always so sweet. Cherub 2 turned, looked and said 'I don't (chuckle), just kidding.'
*Hubby sent me gorgeous flowers. Who says romance dies after marriage. He took me out on a dinner date. Great time. I love that we are still best friends and can laugh over everything a million years later.
Went to the doctor yesterday. There is no bleeding on the retina but the inside is swollen so I will go back again in a month. The doctor said no playing contact supports so I quit my hockey team :o). He told me to ask the kids not to punch momma in the eye.
