The Best Part of the Day

One of the questions I ask Miss A daily, as part of our “end of the day” routine is, “What was the best part of your day?” Only, I don’t always save it for the end of the day. Sometimes, I ask it throughout the day, like, “What’s been the best part of your day so far?”

Miss A’s First Blizzard

About two weeks ago, we got hit by a blizzard named Nemo, which dropped about 24 inches of snow on us over a 12 hour period.

Snugglebug

The past few weeks, this is what I have been waking up to. A snuggly, half-awake, cuddly, sweet little four-year-old, who insists on sharing my pillow and being next to me until it’s time to get up. Sometimes she’ll rub my arm. Sometimes she’ll go back to sleep. She always brings all of the toys she took to bed with her the night before — books, stuffed animals, a sippy cup of water, you name it and she manages to bring it all in one trip. She comes in right about sunrise and just wants to be close.

Returning to normal…

After a couple of crazy fun weeks with vacationing and visitors, we’re finally back to a normal routine this week! And I’m glad for it. I loved our vacation, but I really love the comfort of the day-to-day schedule.
