It’s rare that the hubby, the girls, and I are all off on the same day. And since it was Veterans day, I told the girls about their great grandfather, who served in WW1, as a medical assistant, and their Uncle P, who was a marine. That we have a lot of people to be thankful for in protecting and serving our country.
We proceeded to relax and enjoy a gentle, no-stress day together—the girls and I used a coupon so we could get our toes done at the pedicure salon, the hubby and I took them to see the new Peanuts movie (I loved that they were able to include the Red Baron!), and we went out for a quick bite of sushi afterwards. Then hubby took DD1 shopping so she could spend her allowance that she saved for over a month, and where she carefully picked out a headband and a slap-wrist watch. DD1 came out of the store beaming!
When we got home, I cockroached the no bake recipe that’s been making its rounds on Facebook, the Éclair cake, and had the girls help me with all the mixing, pouring, carefully laying out of graham crackers. (We tried it this morning, definitely kid approved!)
Hubby grilled steaks for dinner and we all sat down together. Afterwards, we watched half an episode of SuperGirl, which I think is a fun show to watch with little girls. My two Supergirls.
Some days, I’m just forever thankful for the little things. DD2 snuggling in my lap and turning around to plant a big smooch on my cheek. DD1 giving a hug to A after dinner because she loved the grilled steak so much. Holding the girls hands as I say our nighttime prayer. And after putting them to bed, DD1 running into the bathroom while I was brushing my teeth, making sure I’d give her one last tuck in. Falling asleep with a smile on my face. Thank you, world.
