A Good Day

Today was one of the most normal days I've had in a long time. And by long I'm talking like the last year and a half.

The boys have been getting up earlier and I have been more tired, so we have been adjusting. This morning when I woke up both boys were in bed with me. Full of smiles and giggles. There is no better sound than that of you children laughing. I love it.

We spent most of the day in the kitchen. Its been a long time since I've really been in there. Yesterday I made homemade spaghetti sauce and today I was making chicken broth for fridays tetrazinni. I'm doing my best to avoid sodium and so I've cut out most canned and processed foods. Takes more work, but its so much better.

While I was busy doing that, the boys had set up their own kitchen. Their imagination blows me away. They use drawers as ovens and cabinets as fridges. My oldest declared me Chef mom. And asked that I call him Chef Anthony. But Chef Alexander was the head chef! The best 1 year old chef in the world:). We made pretend pies, cakes and soup. We served our customers, who were all very happy with their food. And according to Ant, he made enough money to buy me our own house for my birthday. I wish!

Its been a while since I've been able to disconnect from the pain and stress of being sick. I needed a day like today. I got to be a normal mom. Having fun, playing and laughing more than I have in a long time. As I'm getting in bed I can already feel that tomorrow is going to be less fun. But I'm glad I had today!
