The sun peeked through my blinds, washing my face with its delicious rays. He reminded me of the magic of a new day.
I jumped up, grabbed the Queen from her crib, and made some breakfast. I determined that I would do those dishes that have been sitting in my sink for the last week.
I took a shower. I changed diapers. I got everyone, including myself, ready for the mother’s group we had scheduled.
We set off in our double stroller. We met a friend. A mom who also has a toddler and a 2-month old. We walked to the house of the gathering.
Inside, there was resplendent chaos. Children screaming, toys strewn about the floors, and mothers talking. I was happy.
The Queen, unfortunately, decided she did not want to play. She was tired, and, doggoneit, she was going to take a nap. So, after only 40 minutes worth of fun, we took a traipse back to our home.
I put the Queen down, and she slept. Oh, she slept. I held Manly and wrote a little bit.
After lunch, the Queen wanted another nap. I complied. She slept, Manly slept, and I slept. It was glorious.
When I woke up, I tackled the dishes. I made dinner. I was quite content.
After dinner, Mr. B bathed the Queen and put her down for bed. And, there she lies, sleeping like an angel. In the meantime, Manly and I enjoy our time together. He smiles and coos, I smile and coo back. We snuggle. I write. I clean.
Thank you, God, for the sunshine after the rain.
I forgot to mention one very important event that is happening tomorrow.
