Good Day

I don't know if it was the early appointment or the fact at both my boys were asleep at 9and slept {almost} the whole night, but I actually had some energy yesterday. Its been a long time since Ive been up to the challenge, so I milked it for all that it was worth. We started off with a walk around the neighborhood and as always, ended up by the pool. I sat and watched the boys run around. I miss the days when I could run with out being in so much pain. But it was nice just to see them laugh and play. My oldest has the most contagious laugh. And once he starts, the little one starts giggling. I am amazed at how much I love these little guys. How on even the worst of days then can always make me smile.

After a walk I could feel the pain sinking in but we were on a roll, so I thought we would just do something easy. I got out the sprinkler. Well its a water toy that connects to the hose and it sprays water in the air. Just what we needed to cool off from the walk. It was nice to spend time just me and my boys, even if we weren't doing something super exciting. For a while there the pain was gone and I was carefree. I love to see my kids smile and laugh and not hovering over me. My 4 year old is like a second husband. When we started our walk he asked me if my pain was gone. I told him that it was still there, but not to bad. He stopped and looked at me and then said he wanted to go back home. He said "We don't need to go Momma, if you hurt you need to rest up" But I insisted we would just go on a short walk and that I would be fine. I hate to see the worry in his face. Kids are supposed to be thinking about toys and friends, not worried about their parents.

We finished off the afternoon with pink lemonade and cookies. Both boys were ready for bed earlier than usual. Its days like this that make me feel somewhat normal. I live for days like yesterday and I look forward to many more!
