Today was a good day. Don’t get me wrong, we have a lot of good days but we rarely acknowledge them. Usually the good days are great, trips out holidays etc.
Today we got up very early and I anticipated the worst; 2 overtired children, 1 fractious parent and lots of hours until bedtime are generally a bad combination.
We didn’t do anything extraordinary, just a trip to the coffee shop and a run about in the park playing pirates.
We collected some blackberries, picked up some feathers and I explained to Logan that a big tree would grow out of the tiny acorn he found (not sure that one made much sense to him!)
Even Bella had a run about.
Even bedtime went smoothly, yes today we rivalled Topsy and Tim for sickeningly sweet happy families. Usually there is a bit more screaming, hitting and kicking in our days (mostly from the kids!)
Sometimes it’s just worth highlighting the good in a day as the bad always seems to stand out brighter!
