a homemade Mother's Day gift made by Noah at his preschool
A few random thoughts for today...
Mother's Day was sweet and lovely yesterday, thanks to my wonderful family who made me feel special. A delicious breakfast of waffles, berries and whipped cream (darn right!) and some pretty flowers to brighten my day. Ice cream on Main St, a visit to the park and then dinner out at a famous fish and chips joint :)
At the moment I am sipping a cup of tea, watching the trees blow in the wind and enjoying some peace and quiet while the little ones sleep.
I am looking forward to this week. I have some things to look forward to, which is helping me to stay positive. A walk with a friend is planned. A field trip to a goat farm is planned. A date with my hubby is planned.
Speaking of dates, I never really followed up on how my year of dates has gone with my hubby. To be honest, we didn't do so well at keeping up with them, for a few reasons actually. The biggest problem for us, is that over the winter, the kids really seemed to have a hard time falling asleep. One of us would be up in the bedroom until they fell asleep at 9pm. At this point, we were both often too tired to watch a movie (which many of the at home dates entailed). But on a positive note, last weekend we (actually I), booked a babysitter, and Winslow and I went off for a date to the Takhini hot springs together. It was a beautiful evening (plus 17!) and we soaked in the natural hot spring fed pool.... it was lovely. I'll be honest, we were both exhausted upon leaving the house and Katia cried up a storm just as we were leaving, but it was so worth it to have that time together. So good in fact that we are planning our next date for this Friday (if the babysitter will come).
Oh and next weekend something big is going to happen. For the first time ever, I will be taking off for the day and night with 2 amazing girlfriends of mine. We are driving down to Skagway for some much needed and deserved girl's time (or more importantly mama rest time). I can't tell you how excited I am to sleep on my own for the first time in years!
And that's it for now. Just been enjoying the Spring here so so much.
