And I’d do it all again tomorrow. For free!

This face is the reason that today:

I wore a hot pink storage container on my head for a hat.

I crawled around on my hands and knees pretending to be a horse, when there is a perfectly good stuffed toy horse he can sit on and ride in his bedroom.

I cleaned the living room no less than four times.

I showered while trying to avoid a variety of bath toys.

It took me an extra 15 minutes to finish folding laundry that I had already folded once or twice…or maybe three times before.

I cleaned milk soaked cereal off of the carpet.

I heard toddler giggles.

I was greeted with a kiss first thing in the morning.

I had to move the chair away from the shelf with the car keys and spare change by the entry way.

I had to wash a blue blanket with a teddy bear face on it before nap time.

I had to hang cute little boy dress pants on cute little hangers.

I got to boogie to The Doodlebops.

I will be in bed by 9:00.

    He’s a QT all right and your day seems balanced to me. I’m usually in bed by 9 without a little one to wear me out and/or keep me smiling. Thanks for sharing.
    Hugs and blessings,

    I remember those days! Mine is 14 now, and 6’1″, but I still see the little cutie he was when he was 3’1″!!
    Thanks for the memories, and Happy TT!

    Yeah, I can see how that face could get you to do all those things! I have a nephew-sized face that gets me to do some pretty silly things, too. ;)

    It was good to read your blog and see you enjoying your son. The years just fly by. My oldest is now 20 and my youngest is 10. I remember the days of being Tinkerbell while my husband was Peter Pan and my daughter was Wendy. And yes, I had to go by the name “Tinkerbell” all day. This child, my 20 year old leaves in less than 2 weeks for 5 months overseas on a missions trip.

    Play hard!
