We're big into superheroes. Especially Jake, who worships anything that wears a cape:)
So we often have alter-identities. Sunday, I was "Princess Mommy Pants”. Jake said so.
What are my superhero powers
you might ask? I did. Jake said, your power is that you are super beautiful. So beautiful in fact, that your
enemies just fall down at your feet, allowing you to pass by safely.
I cannot even believe I have let this go for so long, again.
OK, yes I can. And so can anyone who knows me.
The quick update:
Jake grows by leaps and bounds, and does something new and funny almost every day. Of late, lots of "I Love You Mommy" (and Daddy) (And Puppy - maybe more than either Scott or I!) and "I Not A Baby!" can be heard around our house. Oh, and his other fave, "Just 2 more minutes!"
Scott goes back to days on Monday - Can't wait to have him back during the week, no more single parenting!
I'm still addicted to anything Free, Clearance, or Bargain Related. Will try to share more of those deals here. As if anyone is reading . . . .
So excited - Just got selected as a host for the Kristin Hannah host party above - Can't wait to share some great new reading with everyone! If you are interested in a copy of Firefly Lane, let me know - I will "invite" you to my party.
Will post a bit more soon - In the meantime, what is your favorite new book, or new author? I need some suggestions, as I have just finished the new book Her Fearful Symmetry (incredible read) and I am currently bookless (gasp!).
Hope you are all ready for the holidays, unlike yours truly, who will apparently be shopping on Christmas Eve this year - Ugh!!!
As Thanksgiving (rapidly) approaches, I find myself pondering what I am thankful for this year. In some ways, it's been tough to rattle off a list. Of course, I am ever thankful for my loving husband, and my beautiful son. But we have had a rough year, facing the loss of loved ones and a baby to be, challenging finances since Scott was laid off, and supporting the far too many people in our lives suffering in one way or another - some fighting more serious battles than others, but they are all in pain - All told, sometimes it is enough to make me wonder why I should struggle to be optimistic and ever mindful of the blessings in my life.
Then Scott asked Jake what he was thankful for this Thanksgiving. Jake, at 2, didn't quite get it, so Scott asked him what things he loved, and he was quick to respond. In no particular order, my son loves and is thankful for:
M&M's (Mmmm's as he calls them)
Dora and Boots
So simple. So easy. He loves the things that make him happy. With that in mind, it is easier for me to say that this year, I am thankful for my family and friends, most especially Scott and Jake, and for a rewarding job, and for the opportunity to celebrate this upcoming holiday season and share it with those most dear.
I hope that as your get ready for your Thanksgiving Celebrations, you have many things to be grateful for. And if all else fails, go get some M&M's. I hear that they make a person pretty happy:)
