Taking a Break
Today was also my birthday, and it was a wonderful day. Martin told me he wanted me to "take the day off", which I will forever believe is the BEST gift any wife or mother could ask for! I slept in until 9am, lounged around the house (in between potty training episodes), then left at 11:30am for a fantastic lunch at the Old Spaghetti Factory with two close friends. We talked for over 2 hours, just catching up, laughing, and having a good time. Then the three of us went thrift store shopping for about an hour, where I found a great leather desk chair (which we've needed) for only $10! After I got home, I took a leisurely (but HOT) nap, and then Martin made us all dinner. My BF Heather had gotten me Sprinkles cupcakes (my FAV), and Martin had also surprised me by baking me cupcakes! So, lots of sugar today. Hey, I didn't want to disappoint anyone! We all took a walk after dinner, and then later tonight M and I are going to watch a movie and relax. The perfect day.
One last funny story - yesterday Micah saw me getting dressed and he ran up to me, grabbed my legs and said "Chunky Thighs!!!" Martin and I busted up laughing - this is what we often (lovingly) say to Jaden. Oh well - I'm a 32 year old mom with chunky thighs. At least I have 2 adorable boys to show for it :)
