A Happy Thursday to you all!
It is strangely quiet here still, with both kids somehow still sleeping… Of course the little guy worked on perfecting his “stalling at bedtime” techniques last night and didn’t actually fall asleep until 10:00…
Want to get thankful with me?
Tuesday I had a dentist appointment.
No, I am not going to say I’m thankful for that – except that it’s over for 6 months. But, because I chose to stay with the dentist I grew up going to, each time I have a dentist appointment means I drive on down to my parents’ and the kids and I usually spend the night down there.
This time around my best friend since elementary school (who still lives down that way) was able to find a sitter for her 3 youngin’s, and I left my own 2 with my parents a little longer and we both had our first pedicure.
THAT is what I’m thankful for today.
No, it’s not the pedicure itself I’m thankful for, although the experience was nice…
I’m thankful for that time alone with my friend. Usually we have 5 kids in tow with us, and although we get to chat, it’s hard to really have a conversation when you have to stop every couple of minutes with, “Sweetie, make sure you’re sharing.” “We need to all stay on the playground, please!” and “Uh, oh, I think the youngest needs a diaper change.”
So there we sat. No kids. Feet in the warm water. Massage chairs going full speed. Getting pampered and just talking girl-talk. (After Monday’s craziness at the doctor and with the cat, and my friend’s own craziness taking 3 kids to the dentist, the time alone together was doubly nice.)
And, now my toe nails match the color of my car.
Now for my favorite part of Thankful Thursday – passing it on to you.
Go on, take a minute to be thankful before the day gets too busy… What are you thankful for today?

It’s so great to steal little moments away when you can get them. It’s wonderful to be a mother, but it’s equally as wonderful to get a break!
Definitely! It is very rare that I get to hang out just with my friend… Definitely a nice break!
