Tonight I danced like this for a good 20 minutes for Everly in the kitchen while she ate some cheese crackers and wiped her snotty nose all over her sweatshirt.
Then once Billy took her to bed, I did it in front of Beckett. And while the other night my song of choice to sing was Coldplay’s Viva la Vida, tonight I chose Brandy’s The Boy is Mine to change things up. Beckett was impressed with my moves and my singing voice and Billy looked over the upstairs balcony and said, “You’ve had a good day today, haven’t you?”
And I smiled. The truth is… there was nothing special about today. I changed pediatricians because of an MMR vaccination argument which ended up in completely unethical behavior on my ex-pediatrician’s part. My mother-in-law found out she had bronchitis, probably from all the sugars her and Everly have exchanged lately. Billy did get some good news but it wasn’t like it changed the whole tone of my day or anything. I did sell my first official, paid cupcake order (thanks Nina)! Oh! And my sweet Leah got great news – 100% of Mae’s cells are growing in her body… this is… miraculous! But really, wasn’t it just kind of a regular day where Beckett fussed to sleep and Everly refused to eat most healthy things?
I don’t know. Now that I recap it I see exactly why Billy asked that. And even though I texted my friend Nicole earlier today and said I was going to be whiny, I wasn’t really. I was just happy.
Who am I kidding?
Today was simply spectacular - even with some bad news sprinkled in. And I’m just glad I was here for it.
You wanna talk New Years resolutions? Try an easy one – find the happy in the small stuff (sort through the bad) and do a robot dance from time to time. It’s good for your soul.
