Yesterday while she napped right through the testing of the tornado sirens across the street from us (she's acclimated to that sound), I changed out of my work clothes, ate some leftovers, and pulled out her toys and arranged them by color.
Because, really, why not?
Maybe today I'll mop the floors or dust or do one of those other projects I've intended to do while she naps that I haven't done because we've had a hard month of almost no naps without the aid of a moving vehicle,
but yesterday I was feeling happy and playful and it showed.
Thank God for naps and for sleeping through the night (both her AND us!).
And for rested and happy babies who laugh at things like this.
And for a life so filled with pretty toys that I had to make a separate pile for the multicolored ones.
And for rested and happy parents who can actually play and enjoy things when given the chance.
Goodness knows I have done a lot of thanking (and playing) this past week.
