a good day.








We had a good day today. It wasn't perfect. No. There were several toddler meltdowns over "broken" pants (??), wanting to sleep in shoes and wanting to be able to drive us on our outing. Meredith might have calmly told me at one point that she wanted to hit me and then proceeded to several minutes later.

But in spite of all that, it was still a really good day. We took it easy and didn't get in a rush to do anything. We strolled to the farmer's market at toddler pace. We watched Toy Story together for the first time and cuddled on the couch for some Mickey Mouse. We had a picnic lunch on the living room floor and after that we all got a nap. We went on a beautiful little hike and shared a dinner of frozen pizza. Mattias was his normal, easygoing self. The day was nothing special and yet it was. I was able to enjoy my two babies and the beautiful place where we live.

Such a lovely day :) Even with toddler meltdowns, it's easy to see how lovely life is.

oh my gosh i am dying with laughter over meredith (although, also, feel for you because at some point it's not quite as funny when you're on the receiving end). have you heard that comparison johnny depp made, saying that toddlers are no different then taking care of your drink friend? the broken pants, and the hitting a few minutes after telling you so reeeeealllly made that comparison come to life. also, i wish i was a kid during the days of blogs so i could know all the silly stuff i did. meredith will love this when she's older. hope you're hanging in there lady!

Sometimes Meredith's faces/comments/actions make me feel like you and I have identical daughters :) Love the pigtails, btw!
