I am so blessed to wake up to this beautiful face every day...
I just have to share with you how every morning at our house goes...
Jaiya wakes up around 8-ish, give er' take a half an hour, and yells from her crib:
"mamma, I wake."
(meanwhile, I'm trying with all my might to peel open my sleepy, heavy eyelids.)
"mamma. Eat. Pweas."
Finally I've mustered up the small amount of energy I have in my system in the morning (I'm SO not a morning person and envy you who are!) and go in to see my beautiful baby girl standing in her crib.
As soon as I enter the room she starts sighing and saying "awwwwwww" in the most enthusiastic way possible. It's so cute. Even in the morning. And then she gives me a big hug and lays her sweet lil head on my shoulder, awww-ing and now patting my back!
"mamma tied-owed?" (tired)
Me: "yep, mommy's tired."
Then I plop her on the couch with her blanky, a sippy with chocac (chocolate in jaiya talk) milk, and some sort of fruit. I flip on the DVR'd Dora, and sink into the couch til I am fully awake. If I do happen to dose off, jaiya yells, "wake up!" "wake up mamma!" and slaps me on the head! It's lovely. Or she won't let me sit on a separate couch and she says, "sit by jaiya, pweas," so of course, with her cute little toddler lisp I can't resist! And I cuddle with my baby! (she will hold the title of "baby" until she's 30 probably, and even then it may not stop, but I'm fully aware my 1 year old is a toddler and it's going by too fast!)
Love my mommy life.
Its busy. Especially with every day duties like work, and school (soon), and taking jaiya everywhere I know exists so she can have a fun summer, but I wouldn't change a thing. I am exactly where I have always wanted to be in life.
Here's a quote to think about:
"In between goals is a thing called life, that has to be lived and enjoyed." -Sid Ceaser
so there ya have it people, reach your goals in life, whatever you strive to be, but don't forget to enjoy...
