A Birthday Slice
My morning started at 7 a.m. on the dot, as usual. My 51-week-old alarm clock/daughter (I have a hard time believing she's going to be ONE on Monday!) woke up right on time. We started the day with a bottle and a snuggle...always a peaceful way to ease into wakefullness!
My co-workers (yes, we did curriculum work today) provided me with a yummy baked potato and salad lunch, followed by equally yummy brownies and ice cream! It made working today much easier.
After work, my hubby took me out for dinner and we enjoyed a meal together where we didn't have to get up to refill anyone's glass, didn't have to tell anyone to sit up in his/her chair and we didn't have to negotiate how many more bites anyone had to have of dinner. That's right, it was a dinner for grown-ups only!
I guess I don't mind getting older when it means I get to have a nice day like today!
