Magical Mondays!


I hope all you lovely women had a wonderful Thanksgiving! What a perfect time to be grateful for all the little things!  My Magic this Monday is:

* Very quickly getting over the disappointment of not bringing home the dog we thought was ours ~ and in fact feeling quite relieved (as she was just not the right temperment for our family no matter how beautiful she was).

* My dearest hubby agreeing to take salsa lessons with me…in our own living room! (I ordered the DVD today!) 😉

* Finding ways of enjoying Christmas without the sole focus being the accumulation of stuff ~ we’re planning a Family Talent Show (which is why hubby and I learning to dance!)

* My dearest hubby’s homemade chili ~ my 6 year old had 5 bowls of it last night (and then asked what else there was to eat…ahhhh, growing boys!)

* My sweet, sweet, beautiful 3 month old baby boy who let EVERYONE in the family hold him on Thanksgiving and was so good natured about it! (My first 2 babies never let ANYONE hold them except me, so this is a LOVELY experience!)

* Being inspired to make our home more of a creative-learning-environment! I’ve created a “treasure chest” where I put new things in it for them to discover everyday. They are toys that we already have, but having them all in one special place seems to make it more fun ~ I’m including books, games, puzzles, and toys and it’s been fun for all of us. 🙂

* Navigating tantrums with a cool head! (THAT is true magic!)

* Home grocery delivery!

* Junior Mints!

* Dark beer!

What’s so magical about your Monday?

  1. My magic for today (I just have to say once again how much I love this column):
    1. Finding out the super great news that my very good friend Jillian is getting the daughter she’s been dreaming of!!
    2. Spending 4 days at home with my little baby over the holiday. I miss her so much today!
    3. Finally deciding to stop drinking coffee. I think it’s been effecting my sleep and while I have a massive headache right now, I know I’m doing the right thing for my body.
    4. Took Lills on the swings for the first time yesterday and she loved it just as much as I did when I was a kid! Heck, I still love going on the swings! We were having so much fun I didn’t even realize how much time had passed till I looked at my watch!

  2. I found out today that I’m having a girl! We will be welcoming our daughter this April. Looking forward to getting home this afternoon to tell my son he’s going to have a sister!
