While the twins napped Ely started building a fence around our garden so the kids, dog, and rabbits will stay out. I decided to go to Target...alone. Unless you usually do your shopping with multiple kids in tow you just don't understand what a HUGE deal this was. I wandered around the store for hours looking at whatever I wanted without rushing in fear of a meltdown for refusing to buy Dora fruit snacks. There was no bribing. There was no scolding. Just me and my list. The downside to shopping without kids? Spending to much time at the store made my bill a little higher than normal...oops!
After dinner and baths I rocked and sang to my babies. This, too, is a rare treat because my almost 2 year old twins are usually to busy for sitting still.
Did you take time and truly enjoy the blessings in your life today?
