|My two sickies can be quite precious.|
Thus, last night, C offered to lay down with Ana while I wrap up my day at my own pace, in peace. It was wonderful. I don't think I have ever enjoyed flossing my teeth so much. As I was going about my business, I got thinking that since I'm going to bed earlier than usual, why don't I wake up earlier than my child and enjoy some more of this peace. Get a jump start, be one step ahead, instead of dragging behind. Oh, just the vision of sipping some Earl Grey while looking at the family calender and getting a feel for the upcoming week felt like all kinds of right.
I awoke this morning, before Ana, got her all snuggled in with Daddy, and not only took a shower, but cleaned off the kitchen table for the first time in months as well (wish I had a before picture). Then, over tea, I looked over the calender. Today, I'll be watching Ana's little buddy all day. Got it. Then changed some items on our website AiramanaHeirlooms.com, caught up on emails, and checked in on all our social networking accounts, and started a list of thing I'd like to accomplish today. Those of you who know me might be surprised at this. But I have found that if I don't have a list, I get so overwhelmed that when I do have a moment, I spend it spacing out and become even more overwhelmed, and then defeated because I just wasted some perfectly good time for doing stuff. So, I made a list fully knowing that not all will get done, and that's ok. Then, as if that wasn't enough, and hearing that she was awake in the bedroom with Chad, I made Ana's breakfast. Before she could do that hungry, complaining cry, she was in her high chair, bib and all, with her morning yogurt smoothie. It is amazing what a mom can do when she has both arms and her mind all to herself. GOAL!!
