I feel like we've hit the fast forward button. Tonight we played Uno. We, Dad, Mom, G, M and lP. It's so fun watching lP hold the cards and pull out her matching color. Our luck has held fairly well that she usually has the color needed, and is happy to get a new card if needed.
Today was such a day of rest. And I didn't expect it to be such a good day. G told me "Uh, mom, it looks like you might be having a bad day." this morning when I finally got everyone into the car.
Parenting. I started reading "Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet" and the description of the son in college gave me pause. Like a wake up call I realized that in general I'm never going to enjoy my children more than I do now. So I should try harder.
