Daycare is closed this week and I have a dilemma. On the one hand I have to stay home with Toby and I have no vacation time so I am not being paid today. On the other hand I get to stay home with my sweet baby boy.
The latter definitely wins out :-)
However this dilemma was thrown into a new light when someone sent us money anonymously in the mail with a note saying "Thanks for brightening my world." The amount in the envelope just happens to be a days pay.
Thank you whoever you are. I feel truly and supernaturally blessed by this action.
In the meantime I am having a wonderful day with Toby. We walked to the farm stand and bought fresh peas and broccoli for his lunch and supper.
We played in the garden, Toby ate his first dirt while I was busy fixing the damage caused by the deer that visit us.
We went for several walks in the neighborhood and checked things out.
We ate duckies. Wait, no, Toby ate duckies.
And shoes, he ate shoes too.
I managed to get some laundry done, pack his clothes for our upcoming camping trip, talk to my parents, read part of a really good book and read the resumes I needed to read for church.
Then there were many cuddles, kisses, giggles and smiles all day. He really is a happy little chappy and with Husby home within the hour, I believe this has been the perfect day. Hope your day has been just as good.
