Cycle is High

I feel like I’m in a really good groove and right now it feels like my life with The Little Miss couldn’t get any better. TLM is out of school this week and she’s been spending her mornings with her former nanny/babysitter. The two of them have a very special bond and they love each other like nobody’s business. TLM lights up when I tell her she gets to go Nanny’s house and The Husband and I couldn’t be more grateful, even if we tried, that Nanny is available to us any time to help care and really, help raise TLM. We feel blessed she is in our lives and has really become part of our family. Our lives would be MUCH different and I think not nearly as fulfilling without her.

I only work until 1pm, so I’ve been rushing over to get my hands on TLM before I explode from missing her. And all this week we’ve been playing and hanging out. I’ve thrown caution to the wind and set aside nap time so we have hours of uninterrupted fun. And that’s what it’s been feeling like this week, fun, fun, fun. It’s not always like that with the two of us. Sometimes it feel like a lot of work and battling a toddler can be more frustrating and draining than you can imagine. But this week is different, we’ve been meeting friends for playdates at the zoo, hitting the beach to play in the water and sand, watering gardens for the grandparents who are out of town, and making dinner for friends.

It feels like we’re both in a good place and if you were to read our horoscopes they would probably read something like:

Cycle is high. Make the best of this time and do what feels right.

And really, isn’t that what it’s all about?

This is the sweetest thing Ive read in awhile! You should print this so when shes all grown up, you can show her...

Yes, we should definitely leave room for spontaneity (I had to look up the spelling!) in our lives!

Gigi said...

Sounds like you and TLM are on the same wavelength. Enjoy!

I agree. Pnut and I are having a ball together lately - so I'm just riding out the wave till the tide comes in. ;o)

I love your phrase of EXPLODE from missing her.

Thats how I get.
At the core of my being.
