My day has been... in some strange ways... peaceful. A sense of settlement has draped about my shoulders, and for the first time, there is at least a piece of me which feels no stress. The rest of me is still stressed, yes, and still seeking far too much chocolate. But a piece of me has found peace. Er, yeah... that sounded really weird when I said it, didn't it?
Tomorrow I will be working at home. Ryan's daycare is closed for a staff training day, so its either work here on the couch or bring him into the office. The couch is a *far* better idea. Especially since he loves to be a tripping hazard now. He's actually quite happy if I put him down on the floor and spread a bunch of things around for him to explore. He'll roll (and attempt to crawl) from thing to thing and check it all out, giggling happily like he's getting away with something.
Today when I picked him up, he kept holding his little arms out to me. Lotsa hugs. *happy smiles* I love baby hugs and little girl hugs. When my children show me how they love me it is one of the absolute best feelings in the world.
Tonight we had to take him out of his car seat which he usually snoozes in until we go to bed, because he wanted to sleep on his side. Once we did that, he clonked right out.
Dani and I baked cookies. We made the Cookie Monster dough a while back and froze logs of cookies. I defrosted one last night, and tonight we baked it. We're going to make chocolate chip ones tomorrow, and peanut butter chip chocolate cookies later. We are bringing cookies to her "graduation" ceremony for pre-school. I can't wait to see them all performing! Its going to be SO cute, and then there's a picnic afterwards. Kevin and I are both taking that day off so we can play with Dani, and maybe go to a movie before we need to pick Ryan up from daycare.
I'm looking forward to getting to spend time with my daughter.Posted by Deb Atwood at June 11, 2002 10:32 PM
