Gracia on the other hand? Well honestly what can one expect from a 20 month old? Nothing less than running, giggling loudly, climbing on the tables, throwing the stuffed animals in the reading corner, climbing on the kiddy book shelves.....yes with little destructo around the trip can be quite tiring!
But today for some reason was delightful. No one got any warnings (except Gracia to get off the top of the bookshelf and down from the table top). No tantrums, no disobedience. On the way out the Librarian even commented on how well behaved my kids were....now that is a rare treat to a mother's ears. And it really made my day.
After editing with a little Graussian Blur
So much so we made a spontaneous stop to borrow "Where the Wild Things Are" (with a FREE movie coupon of course!) and make tonight Spaghetti and Movie night. It's days like this when I can breathe and just enjoy, and it is a rare treat with 3 little ones always needing something!
One more edit just for fun.
I wish all my days went this well...but that is what makes this one so rare, one to cherish. Easy days are hard to come by, easy outings with 3 little ones and a huge belly are even harder to come by. So I cherish this one day and remember it, even though it was simple, just a little Library trip. It's one I'll remember with a smile!
