I love days like this. It makes me feel so grateful that I have the opportunity to stay home with my little loves. The reason I have that opportunity? My husband. Though this year has been tough on us we're getting better at talking about things and trying to work together :)... (sometimes not trying as hard as we should) but it is because he is working so hard that I am able to stay home.
Today we had breakfast and saw daddy off to work. We listened to some music, did some laundry and had our morning snack while the little one napped and we played Legos :)
After morning nap, we headed to the library. I packed us a lunch and a blanket. We had a lovely picnic on the lawn. The weather was perfect, not too hot and nice in the shade. Mila ran up and down the hill while Luna and I finished munching.
I love going to the library! I always have. Books are like magic, and I get excited to pick interesting and fun books for the girls. Even though I don't always get a lot of time to look because Mila wants to play on one of the computers and Luna just gets a kick out of crawling away from me around the next bookcase. But it's still fun. Today we ended up with 6 books. I try to get at least one book that shows a different culture or group so that Mila will see that others live differently. Last time that book was Mama Panya's Pancakes by Mary and Rich Chamberlain. It shows the life of a mother and son in a Kenyan village. I really liked it because it included a recipe for the pancakes as well as some Kiswahili words.
We got home and I read one of the books to the girls and put Luna down for her nap. Mila and I pretended we were on an adventure to seek out the magic crowns of Arendelle (Frozen of course) before it was time for her to have quiet time.
Now I took the chance to write a quick blog before it's time to play again. :)
Today is also the two year anniversary of Diana's death. It's hard to believe it's been two years. It seems like it was so recent. I know Marc misses his mom every single day, I would feel the same if it were my mom. I pray she's watching over us all and giving us little inspirations each day. I know she would love to play pretend with the girls. It would make her smile.
