We had a much better day today. B woke up bright and early to help me bake amaranth/quinoa chocolate muffins. I told him today was a no computer day for me and a not too much television day for him. He was completely on board. He said, "Woo Hoo! Mom, if you use the computer, you will get a fine." When I asked how I should pay that fine he said, "in my piggy bank." Smart boy.
We went to Jazzercise and it was fun Friday, which means the kids could dance after class. They love this! On the way home, B asked me what a lucky day means. I told him it is when everything makes you happy. We ate lunch under the big tree in our front yard. During our prayer B said, "I'm thankful for God." Jilly laid on her back, intrigued by all the branches. B spent his lunch time making us laugh. Then they played in the bed of the truck. For some reason this is their favorite activity. They played until it sprinkled. I promised B we'd stay out in the sprinkles until they turned to rain.
When Jilly took her nap, B and I played Buzz, Woody, and Chutes and Ladders people. Basically the Buzz shows off to the game pieces and they praise everything he does. We went to the mailbox and we got some junk mail that had happy face stickers. Of course B thought these were sent to him because it is his 'lucky day.' Jilly and B had these stickers plastered all over their faces in no time.
B was so sweet to his sister today. Giving her kisses and helping her. Jilly was full of love, too. I think there is something to this no computer/little t.v. thing. When my attention is elsewhere I tend to miss the blessings God has placed right under my nose. (I'd better put a quarter in B's piggy bank. I just wanted to share our 'lucky' day.)
