Poor guy doesn't even know he's got a pink paci.
And, he sucks his thumb which is the cutest thing.
I love him.
Yesterday while driving in the car, I was overcome with happiness.
I turned off the music and told my kids,
"Do you know that I am so happy to be your mother?
There is nothing else in this whole wide world I would rather be doing right now."
In the rear view mirror I saw Lily crack a sweet smile and
from the back I heard Zach say,
"Yeah mom, we know."
Speaking of utter contentment...
I love when David and I sit in the same room with our internetting delights.
From my computer there were friendly blogs mingled with music,
and a few favorite shopping spots.
I glanced over to his screen when I heard strange sounds.
You Tube had him entranced. He spent 42 minutes watching a big machine
dig out a lake on someones private property. The producer of the video (a farmer)
had set up a tripod and recorded (no edits mind you) the endless hours of his labor.
I think there were 6 parts.
When I teased him about it, he said, "well, you just spent 20 minutes looking
at pillows...talk about mind-numbing."
Secretly, I love that he watches those obscure videos that have only been viewed by
three other people (the farmer, his wife and maybe his curious neighbor).
Because I just know that our differences are what enrich each other's lives.
Someday my pillow search will beautify our space, and knowing my husband,
there will come a day when understanding how to dig a lake will come in handy.
