Yay! I survived one of the first major holidays of the season. With out murdering anyone or ending up in jail all due to no drama, a great husband, great friend and Wine! We actually had three Thanksgiving dinners. My own with my husband to boys and brother in law. My moms which was small and nice, and our friends which was with her family. That one made our night her family was awesome and very welcoming. At my friends’ Mrs. L we had to go around the table and say what things we were thankful which inspired me to share what and who I a thankful for.
First my Husband. He is not only my lover and great father to C and L, but also my best friend. He has put up with a lot of hormones this year. He listens to my rants of the birthing process and whatever mommy drama is going on. Even though I know I drove him nuts he is still here.
My Boys- they are my world. When ever anyone has questioned my parenting style my boys prove them wrong. Mr C my 19 month old is becoming more and more independent. He is becoming more social and Thanksgiving night he finally had no problem letting me leave him with another adult. This is huge to us. To the ones who said ” oh you don’t use babysitters he will never want you to leave him when he gets older” shove it along with the ones who said he will never sleep by himself. As he has loved the new bed he has and is excited to go to bed in his own bed. Even though this makes me want to cry. Mr. C who is two months now he is now full of smiles laughs and farts. I am loving and thankful for every moment with him.
Minnesota Cloth Diapering Mommies- A group I admin along with three other mamas. I love every women in this group with all of my heart. These women are strong, loving, smart and beautiful. Whenever I have had a question about anything they have been there. Days I have questioned my motherhood they have been there. Days I have wanted to murder my husband not only have they been there but offered their yards lol. I am so thankful for having them in my life.
My Mom, and siblings- Even though my mom and I don’t see eye to eye on everything, she is the one that made me who I am today for that I am thankful for her. I love you mom. My siblings- we never talk anymore and we argue and I think you all are nuts, I love you all and I cherish our childhood memories.
Wine- you help me deal with all the crazies in life. You made the youtube videos I watched of crazy black Friday shoppers even more funny.
Those are my main things along with good health, freedoms, etc. I realized though every day should be a mini thanksgiving. Thank we should all take time to think at the end of the day the things you are thankful for. Not just wait till a holiday to remember.
This leads me to ask, What are you thankful for?
