Today...







I count my day in cookies, 9 to be exact. We sat outside today and enjoyed some chocolate chip cookies (well the kids did at least). I couldn't pass up this glorious day, it was just so pretty and as I layed there in the sun, I remembered the lyrics to the title song of Rent. On occasion I will catch myself throughout the day and think, what do I count my day in today? Most of the days it goes just as the song, I count it in diapers. The same song of every stay at home mom of babies. Lately I have had half the load of diapies since Sawyer's taken a liking to potty and is now trained. So today, as we lay in the sun looking at the beautiful clouds and smelling the sweet air (well sweet for L.A.) I count my day in cookies, because All I want to remember of today is that I soaked in the sun while my kids ate their three cookies. So while my house has suffered yet another week, I am happy, because although I have a weekend of cleaning and preparing for next week, I found joy today. It was hiding in our backyard along with 9 cookies.

  3. Take as many of those days as you can because they go by way too fast. Before you know it, you paying college tuition and planning weddings. They are only little for a short time. Savor it.
