I Got Love For You

There is shredded mozzarella cheese on the living room floor. Miley Cyrus (or is it Hannah?) blaring on the cd player in the kitchen, Pumpkin has been running around in her underwear since her naptime and I haven’t been able to get her dressed, and The Princess has what appears to be a big mud splash on her off white pants. Lovely.

I only briefly made it out of the house this morning – to pick up a donut for Pumpkin who has been sleeping so beautifully all the way through the night (oh, if I could only say the same for myself!) and to pick up some coffee for moi. Work, writing projects, extra hooey and I feel just like blah.
And the bad thing is that some days, this 365 picture day serves only to remind me that I haven’t done a whole lot of any significance in my day. And then I realize that I’m wrong. Today, I read stories. Made lunches. Brushed hair. Sang songs. I scrubbed Sharpie off Pumpkin’s hands (aw yeah). I poured juice. I brainstormed with The Princess to determine our meeting spot should our house catch on fire (thank you fire safety week). But most of all, I gave my kids lots of hugs and love. And so when I started trying to figure out how I would define my day in pictures, The Princess finger-spelled LOVE in sign language, and I funkdified it up with random tints. Though I ended up using a picture of Pumpkin’s Sharpie hands, it was a good reminder that my days and the things I do are part of the bigger picture, even if I don’t always see it.

    Great blog post!

  2. Thanks for the reminder! There are many days when I don’t feel like I’ve accomplished anything. But there’s always the love.

    I adore the picture!

  3. I love this post. Thanks for the reminder. Even on a day that may seem “blah”, all of those little moments add up. In those little ways we make memories for our children, and for ourselves. Someday they won’t need us to pour their juice anymore.

    love ya

  4. Thanks Robin, FW, and Casey… I needed it – and just writing it reminded me that I’m part of something bigger than vacuuming cheese. It’s easy to forget, isn’t it?

    Hugs to you all for the comments – and Case, MISS YOU!!!
