Every time, without fail.
|Picking out our (suprisingly still-fragrant) Christmas tree. She thinks, for some reason I don't quite understand, that you can get drinks from trees.|
After I parked outside the building where I work on one of the snowy/icy days this last week, I gathered up my water bottle and two mandarin oranges and got out of the car. As I navigated the icy parking lot trying not to slip, I suddenly thought, "Well, at least if I fall over, these two oranges will go flying and make anyone who sees it laugh."
That made me smile. I didn't end up slipping. How sad.
Today was little M's second time going to nursery (she's been sick ever since the first time). When we got home, she refused to nap, so we decided not to fight it and ate dinner. By the end of dinner, she was struggling to stay awake so we put her to bed. At 5:30! Out like a light.
Here's hoping that it lasts through the night.
