Yesterday was one of those days where you really do have to appreciate the little things. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction (or something like that):
Q was happy to get dressed when he got up (not always the case) but then cried for about 20 minutes because I didn't let him eat the almond butter off of the spoon (I figured it wasn't a great idea since there are kids in his class that have allergies).
E made his own breakfast (oatmeal), but put the microwave cover on it and the oatmeal bubbled over and made a big mess. (But not his fault)
Q stopped crying but then spilled shake on his shirt and needed an outfit change before we left.
Our cable box isn't working and I spent some time on the phone with them trying to get it fixed remotely, but it didn't work. But thankfully I can still watch shows on the Bell app on my phone.
But we picked up some groceries (including a box of cookies the boys talked me into), read some books, E successfully completed some math work, I did my ab/pushup/squat workout, and the kitchen is cleaned up. Plus I get to work from home tomorrow, which I am so appreciative of.
And I get to enjoy some leftover Thanksgiving wine and pie while I'm watching This Is Us (on my phone, see above).
This is not the usual format for a Little Things post, but it is still a reminder to pick out the happy little moments when you can.
