On the rare occasion that this happens (about three times... ever) I am just so excited to see her when she wakes up. I've puttered around a bit and am not all discombobulated the minute I jump out of bed at the sound of crying. I probably should just set an alarm and get up before she does every morning. But....well....I'm not that motivated.
I have just been bustling around like crazy today, happy as a lark. It is sunny and about 60 degrees today, so I opened up a bunch of windows and aired out the house. I have been vacuuming, cleaning, doing laundry, going to Target and buying new throw pillows and red accents for my kitchen and family room (Thanks, Mom!).....it feels so good to have such energy and not have a tantruming toddler attached to my thigh and screaming. I also noticed the tulip bulbs I planted last fall have broken through the ground. It feels like spring, and it is only January. I hear a cold front is coming, so I'm trying to enjoy it while I can!
This morning I said to Becca, "What should we do today?" And she said, "How about....vacuuming?" So, she put on her play dress-up shoes and got her little red vacuum (Thanks, Jo Anne) and I got my big blue one and we vacuumed two floors of the house together, until the belt blew on mine. I did not have my high heels on, just so you know. I don't know where she gets these ideas!
So, life is just grand today in my corner of the world. And, it is a very nice change.
