In a day filled with ups and downs, I am trying to find the silver linings. It is after 9:00pm and I am finally sitting down, all by myself.
Waking up exhausted after a sleepless night with Sophia, giving meds every three hours, I looked forward to snuggles with Sophia. I was pleasantly surprised to see her in good spirits. We spent time watching tv, building Legos, and playing games. She had her brave moment when we finally were able to take off the bandage on her hand. Proud mama.
The bus pulled to a stop and off ran Izzie. I loved being there to get her off the bus. She had one hand behind her back and yelled, “I have a surprise for you!” She pulled her arm out and showed me a Superstar Blue slip. Two days this week! Proud mama.
Izzie had her Kindergarten Open House tonight. Having her show me around her room was a perfect way to spend the evening. She read us all seven of her books she has written during Writer’s Workshop. Her teacher told us she often asks if she can go onto the next page when writing. “Of course!” is what her teacher responds. Proud mama.
I am so grateful for my girls and the many moments each day that make me a Proud Mama.
