Everyday life can be quite repetitive, unless you’re a treasure hunter or maybe a time traveler (wouldn’t it be cool?). But repetitive doesn’t mean boring, and I enjoy capturing the little moments that make a day unique in its own way.
Of course, I can’t avoid the emptying of the dishwasher first thing in the morning. But I always try to beat the timer and do it under 3 minutes. By now, I’m a pro and I’m waiting for my gold medal.
And you know what makes the house chores go a lot faster? Looking at the gift my six-year old made for me: flowers out of my favorite color and a love note. I get gifts from him about once a week. I bet he’ll make a great boyfriend and a great husband.
Somehow, breakfast never consists of simply sitting at the table and eating. It’s often the last thing on the kids’ minds as they prefer more creative activities, like building their latest Lego contraptions. I’m a big admirer because I can’t build stuff like that without following directions.
If you read my recent post about the Sunshine Award, you know my favorite time of the day is when I read books with my kids at night. This is what my bedroom floor looks like as they go through their nightly book selection. Actually, it often looks a lot worse. This was a good day.
Of course, my second favorite part of the day is when I read books by myself before going to sleep. Unfortunately I often make it to bed late, get sucked into the story and freak out when I look at the clock. Uh oh, better turn off the lights. Good night!
