I live for mornings like that!

I just have to document what a wonderful day I had yesterday. Nothing spectacular, but it was the kind of day that reminds me why I love being a stay-at-home-mom.

The morning started off normal. I went for a run and came home just as Joe as about ready to leave. After a quick breakfast with my boys, I decided to do my pilates workout. When that was over and the boys were STILL playing nicely together I snuck up to the kitchen to get some things done. By 11:00 AM I had made a lasagna that was ready to be baked for dinner, prepared FHE treats (PB bar cookies with PB and chocolate frosting...mmmm!) and done all of the dishes! And the boys were STILL playing together. I went to check it out to see what was causing all of the giggling, I was suspicious by this point!

Sam had pulled the mattress from his old toddler bed (we just got bunkbeds and so now he's on a regular mattress) out of the closet. He had put it in his doorway at the end of the hallway. They piled all the blankets and pillows that they could find on top of it and were running from the end of the hallway and diving. A bit of mess but all very harmless and they were having such a good time...TOGETHER! It gave me hope that they can actually be in the same room for more than a minute without annoying eachother!

I love being a mom and I love these little monsters so much! I wouldn't trade anything in the world for my happy little family. I need to document moments like that because sometimes we need a reminder, right?

Thanks for posting on my blog. I'm glad you put these stories on your blog. I remembered after mine was done that I wanted to write about Sam's fun new words.

Excellent idea to document moments like these for times when you need them. Things do get better and worse as they get older. I don't mind when they do 'naughty' things as long as they are working together!

So true.........sometimes we DO need a reminder of all the fun, cute, and innocent things they do.

You are an inspiration to me. Your happiness in contagious. Thanks!

I love it when the kids actually play together and there is no screaming, whining, pouting, toy snatching, etc. It is good to remember that there are times like that.

I agree with what you said about your kids. Those are the times to remember and treasure. Are you training for any races this year?
