I have come to realize and make peace with the fact that until Moo's immune system gets a little bit stronger, there's going to be some kind of cold germ circulating around our household. Literally, the day JJ and I start feeling better, she comes down with a cold that has been really kicking her butt. I'm grateful that she's been a trooper though. Her being sick a lot was one of the things that I worried about with her starting school. Thankfully, while we have had some sleepless nights, we've managed to still make it to school on time this.
I'm also thankful that the Mr is a bit of a night owl on his days off. JJ decided to have a 4 AM party and I was beyond exhausted from having stayed up late with the Moo that night and the last couple of nights. So, the Mr was kind of enough to entertain JJ for two hours. I felt like those were the best two hours of sleep ever.
A few weeks ago, Moo had expressed that she was feeling a bit left out. Having a special needs child is demanding, but I never want her to feel like she's any less loved or any less important to me. So, in the afternoons when I pick her up from school, we have Mommy and Moo time. I'm thankful for that opportunity to be able to give her one on one time with just me. And today, we went shopping and she had a blast. I even let her get a special treat.
I'm thankful that it is now officially Fall! It's starting to look so colorful like a leaf wonderland out with all the leaves changing colors and falling from the trees. It actually got cool enough last night to turn the heat on for a little while. I'm excited to light up the fireplace and camp out in the living room with the kiddies.
That start of Fall also brings the beginning of the holiday season. I did my first bit of Christmas shopping last week. I'm super excited because Moo will soon be experiencing her first school holiday party!!
Lastly, I'm thankful that I got to hang out with some awesome bloggers this week and get out of the house for a little adult time at a tasting event. Be on the look out for my recap post tomorrow.
What's on your gratitude list this week?
