Find Good In Every Day

One mom's attempt at finding good in every day of this chaotic world.

Lazy Sundays December 15, 2009

I was never one to truly enjoy and relish in a lazy weekend day.  If the weather is nice, I’d rather be outside doing something active or productive.  But recently, as life has become more hectic, I’ve come to appreciate a lazy day at home.

This past Sunday was one of those days.  It was pouring rain and very cold.  After picking Mason up in Frederick after a night at Meema’s, we went straight home.  Both kids were tired (Jeremy too), so we put a movie in, popped some popcorn, nestled under some blankets and just hung out.  It was great.  I was thankful to have the kids resting and somewhat quiet.  That’s my idea of relaxing.

Of course, once everyone was settled, I was up and getting things done.  Laundry, pumpkin bread, decluttering, etc.  I know, what is lazy about getting chores done, you ask.  But for me, it was lazy for everyone else, so I was able to actually get things done without much interruption.  It was heaven!


Understanding Cooper

On our way home from school last night, we drove by a neighbor’s house with a lot of Christmas decorations.  We drive by it every night, and every time, Cooper says, “Santa.  Santa, Mommy.”  He did the same last night.  But a few seconds later (when we were already past the house), Cooper said, “Up Down, Mommy.  Santa Up Down.”  Umm…  what?  I just said, “Yes, Cooper, up down.”  You need to acknowledge the kid with everything he says or he’ll just keep saying it over and over.  I did not understand what he was saying, but just brushed it off and went on with the evening.

This morning, on my way to work while passing the same house with decorations, I noticed a Santa flag that I had not seen before.  On the flag, Santa is hanging upside down.  Ahh…  It all became clear to me.  “Santa Up Down” means “Santa upside down.”  The kid is perceptive, what can I say?  Mommy, on the other hand…
