Thursday Morning

Adon was a bit of a night owl last night, so I was tired this morning. Grace too has been waking up often at night. I’m hoping she’ll get it all sorted out soon and go back to sleeping peacefully throughout the night. But this morning was fun…and productive. Two things I wasn’t expecting considering no one really slept all that well.

I pulled out some new water color paints for Grace to try out. This is the first time she’s ever painted—and she spent 2 hours painting at the table, completely enthralled with it all. And so was I! I should’ve pulled the paints out months ago. At first she was a little hesitant, then she let loose and even painted the table.  That’s when I pulled out a really old cookie sheet and had her just paint on that.

Then she wanted to help me wash dishes—which is really her just playing with bubbles in the sink. This is a favorite pastime for her. She also helped me vacuum the whole house. Her job is helping roll up the rugs. It’s such a fun age because she loves to help with whatever I’m doing at the moment.

Adon just hung out the whole time. We all ate a snack together and then they both went down for naps at the same time. Hallelujah! Not everyday will be like today, but man am I thankful when it does go this well.
