On Wednesday I ...

source

* Thought it was Tuesday all day long.

* Lost my temper over bath time. I apologized.

* Got a peek at my son's preschool and realized what's about to happen. I held him in my lap at bedtime and felt him outgrow me a little bit more.

* Started in on Thank You notes from Sebastian's birthday. Yep.

* Wore a thrifted dress and felt pretty all day.

* Thought about moving houses someday.

* Practiced empathy instead of offense.

* Politely pointed out to the jeweler at the mall that they hadn't in fact fixed my wedding ring.

* Couldn't get the songs 'Time After Time' by Cyndi Lauper and 'Every Rose Has A Thorn' by Bret Michaels out of my head. I prefer the first one but I keep seeing Bret Michaels concert signs downtown.

* Read a few more pages of 'Eat, Pray, Love'.

* Got two whole hours to catch up on online work and barely made a dent.

* Made Ruby laugh.

* Enjoyed three cups of coffee.

* Avoided the laundry but watered the yard.

* Listened to the latest Mates of State album over dinner at the table.

xoxo,
Rachel

Awe. They get so big so fast. My youngest doesn't need to hold my hand anymore when we walk to school. Breaks my heart :(

It sounds like a lovely list.

Eat Pray Love is one of my favorites!

heyjenrenee said...

oh goodness, this sounds so familiar. (bath time!) Lo starts preschool in less than a month and i'm so there with you. (i had tears in my eyes just helping her pick out a backpack ... that's bad.)

Laura Wynn said...

How are you liking 'Eat Pray Love'? I'm thinking of reading it.

Sounds like a prety great list! I thought it was Monday all day long, but it was Tuesday! It still feels a day behind for me. Like today should be Wednesday.

Kim said...

I too am plugging my way thru Eat, Pray, Love want to have it finished by the time we go see it in theater but I am so stinking busy. sweet list!!!

Don't worry about him outgrowing you! It won't happen. My 15yo (very independent to the world) daughter still crawls into bed in the evening and cuddles and holds my hand when she's having a bad day.

Mandy said...

I love this list - such an honest look at the day of a mom. :) The one about preschool put a little lump in my throat for you.

Julie said...

I remember those days when they first start going to school. My daughter will be in second grade this fall. I can't believe how fast it flies!

Liz said...

Sounds like a lovely day :)

Lovely list! Love your comment about "practicing empathy". I too am reading Eat, Pray, Love. How are you liking it? It took me awhile to get into but am now really into it.

Your Wednesday sounds very similar to mine! I went to a meeting at the pre-school where I teach to begin gearing up for the new year. I hope you have an easy transition into pre-school world! Don't get discouraged!

Michelle said...

Oh, goodness. Bret Michaels! lol. Song officially stuck in my head for the day. :) Sounds lovely, everything - so lovely. :)

doublegrr said...

My favorite Mates of State album to date. xo

Gussy said...

Mates of State is such a great band. A friend told me about them a few weeks ago!

happy Thursday :]

Have a great day!

:) I like you Rachel lol I know that may sound funny! But you make motherhood real but also super fun and wonderful sounding! Gives me something to look forward to!!

Esther said...

life is beautiful,

what a sweet list.

Rubyellen said...

ah... the losing temper and apologizing happens a lot in this house!

tallynt said...

one of the best things about preschool - it gives you time to take a breath and realize how amazing your kids are AND the best part when you walk in the room to pick them up they run up to you with a giant grin and then give the biggest hug ever. It truly is worth it.

Great perfect mom list.

hsing3kinder said...

sounds like a perfectly lovely day ~ be gentle to yourself momma, lots of changes coming your way!

AngelaS said...

Great list!

elise said...

love love love Mates of State.
can't handle how big my little man is getting, either.
can't imagine how much you have to do with how many ppl are enrolled in Home Ec... that has to be a good feeling though! quite the success.

All day Wednesday I had "Every Rose has its Thorn" also - and I couldn't explain the reasoning behind it at all.
