Despite all the other moms & babies/toddlers in the pool, it felt like it was just us. I'm so proud of how well she's doing. It seems silly, I know---but, she's doing so good. She knows how to hold her breath & close her eyes when going under. She can even climb out of the pool fairly well with only a little help from me.
I love that she loves the pool. In fact, we re-upped for another session of classes. Seeing her progress has made me realize I want to continue the good thing we've got going. I'm thrilled that she's not scared of the pool & is learning the tools to be safe in water.
I so never thought I'd be the mom that does swim classes, but I'm glad we did.
I'm thankful for our time together. All of it. Which is a lot. I'm grateful beyond words of the time I get to spend with her. I'm fairly sure that oozes from my pours. Really.
I'm thankful for how much love I've felt from all of you this week. The comments, the emails, the birthday wishes.
You know how to make a girl feel loved. Thank you.
I'm thankful for my camera. Gee, ya think?
I'm thankful that Spring is coming. Well, it's here according to the calendar but not according to the weather. I'm clinging with all of me to the few days we have coming up that resemble spring-like weather. It's so good for my soul.
I'm thankful that Emeline's 1st birthday plans are underway. I am however, NOT thankful for the idiot that stole our invitations directly from the package last week. I'm not even kidding.
I am thankful that Vista Print was super nice & had them re-shipped immediately even though it wasn't their fault but the postal services. I can always, always appreciate good customer service.
So, thank you VP. From one almost-on-the-edge-of-a-breakdown mother. Sincerely.
I'm thankful for gift cards. Call me lame, but I think gift cards are The Best birthday gifts, ever. I get to spend money on myself, guiltless! Which is awesome. Considering I normally feel too much guilt to spend said money on things for me.
So, a few gift cards are always fun after birthday's. You will find me at the mall this weekend. Possibly.
I'm thankful for a husband who says, "Let's make a to-do list of things to get done around the house this weekend." Despite my lack of list-loving...I know its necessary and things have gone by the wayside.
I appreciate him making sure it happens.
Maybe you won't find me at the mall this weekend, after all.
What are you thankful for?
