We got sleep last night! Oh, thank God, we got sleep. Cole was up @ 3, but after I pulled him into bed with me, he played with my hair a bit and dozed off…ahhh, bliss.
Aaaand, the sun is out today…after 2 and a half days of clouds and rain, the sun is shining without a cloud in the sky. Cole and I went for a nice long walk, and aside from coming this close to stepping on a dead mouse, it was terrific. He and I chatted the entire way about such interesting topics as garbage trucks, birds, fire hydrants, and thus, fire trucks, school, Jake, (we passed Jake’s school on our walk), and all of the Halloween (or Boo, as Cole says) decorations outside.
On top of it all, Tate is at school ALL DAY! I am letting him be a typical kid today-no therapy, no coming home early. Instead, my Taters got to go on a FIELD TRIP with his class. They visited a local pumpkin farm (and for those counting at home, that makes THREE pumpkin farm visits this year!), and according to his teacher, he is loving it!!
Tate’s full day gave me a break. I was able to get some cleaning done, go for that walk, and spend quality time with Cole. It is nice to just SIT at home and relax.
I’m hopeful that the good mojo from today spills over into the weekend, and that we’ll have a good time hanging out at home doing fall-ish things like raking leaves, cleaning up the yard, enjoying a warm fire in the fireplace, and sipping cider or hot cocoa.
