Today has been crazy and slow and fast and wonderful.
Sometimes I sit and think...tomorrow is going to be a beast and then there is this lovely surprise of a day that is the best ever.
Ben went to bed at 9:00 pm last night. He woke up at 1:00 am to go study. 1:00 am y'all. He studied and studied and studied and then took his last test of the school year. So basically he got maybe 8-10 hours of sleep in the past 3 days. Woof.
Caroline has been getting a new tooth and at this point it's probably two. Her naps have been off and she just wants me to hold her--or climb the stairs and eat dust bunnies. Who knew they were so delicious?!? So, when Caroline is sad and needy nothing gets done around the house. I have laundry to fold and a sink full of 2 days worth of dishes. There just hasn't been any time.
But today was so wonderful. Caroline and I went on the best walk. The grandma's at the park just love her. She crawled around the park and we walked around the tennis courts and watched several people playing. It was a gorgeous day and we took advantage of it. We came home and she took a nap and woke up crying and crying and crying. I scooped her up and cuddled and kissed that little girl. I threw her in her carseat and we went to jamba where I spent my mother's day coupon and to Joann's to look at elastic for headbands. The price was ridiculous and I found a steal of a deal sale on etsy on exactly what I needed. Caroline and I came home and she took a nap.
Ben came home after his test and we had a mini whoo-hoo celebration before he took a brief nap. He was so relieved. Caroline woke up and I took care of her while Ben rested. We used a coupon for dinner at Sweet Tomatoes and Caroline ate her heart out and discovered that she loves cucumbers. Then we took a walk around our favorite fountain browsed threw Nordstrom rack and came home.
Ben and Caroline splashed during bath time. There is nothing that makes this mama happier than listening to water splash everywhere. We got Caroline into her pjs and right before I put her in bed she rested her head on my chest and stroked her arm up and down my arm. She was so sweet and cuddly that I couldn't stand to put her down. I had to soak it up.
So there are dishes in the sink still and Ben is tired and Caroline, I'm sure, will not nap well tomorrow. But that's okay. Because it's summer, my husband has a brief break, we have a perfect little girl with 6.5 teeth, and life is perfect.
