O Happy Day…

How do you define a good day?

*******

Waking up to the coos of our baby and being greeted by his sunny smile when I pick him up from his cot.

Hearing his giggles and seeing his eyes light up as he plays with his daddy.

Watching C set up the exersaucer for our baby, although the little one is a tad too short to use it properly.

Holding our baby close to me and dancing around the room to a song playing on the radio.

Standing hand-in-hand with C as we watch Noah bat the crocodile rattle on his activity gym with one hand, while he sucks his other vigorously.

Going out for a dim sum lunch and having the baby sleep through the meal in his Manduca carrier.

Enjoying our favourite tv shows while our son naps.

Seeing Noah beam at me from his car seat as we head out for dinner.

Having my favourite Portobello Mushroom Burger and CrissCut fries from Carl’s Junior, while Noah sleeps through our meal again.

Reading bedtime stories in bed with my two boys.

Spending time as a family: just the three of us, for the whole day.

I had a lovely day on Saturday! Nothing fancy, just time alone with my husband and baby. I just realised how rare it was for us to have the whole day to ourselves, and I think we really should have more of such ‘family days’. It’s so nice to be able to spend so much time together, without having to rush around trying to make sure we’re home in time for C to take a conference call or head out for tennis, or for us to meet up with my parents or our friends. Don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy spending time with our family and friends but I think this was the first time we didn’t have any other appointments, and it made all the difference to me. I’m already planning to have another one of these special days when C comes back from his business trip! 🙂

 

Happy to be out!
