It is Monday. A school day. 12:15 pm. Kids are home playing Sorry. We had pancakes for lunch. Still in pj's....all of us....with curtains drawn. No one is sick. It feels good.
Yesterday Kaia had a big gymnastics meet. State Championships. She took 1st place on Vault!Video to come later today. We got home late last night and this morning it just felt right to let the kids sleep until they woke. I had every intention of bringing them to school today after they woke, but when I heard them sneak into Kaia's room around 9:30 am and crawl into her bed and giggle and talk I decided we would just stay home today. I even crawled back into bed. The only thing on my to-do list now is grocery shopping. Everything else was thrown out the window when I didn't open the blinds to say we were welcoming the day today.
I believe these are the kind of days that my kids will actually remember when they get older.....the day mommy let them stay home from school to play together when neither of them were sick....not the morning I should have dragged them out of bed after a late night, yelling at them to move faster and rushing them out the door to go to school.
