Happy Days

Things I am grateful for this week:

- Watching Brigid dance to Lady Gaga with her stuffed cat and gold purse, after asking for her sunglasses, headband, and tutu. And seeing her get excited when 'Poke!' (Poker Face) comes on.

Also, my kid can name a Lady Gaga song after the opening notes. I'm not sure what this says about my parenting skills...

- The fact that B thinks I look like Snow White. Or she thinks that Snow White looks like me. Whatever it is, every time she sees Snow White somewhere, the excited pointing and the steady stream of 'mom-mom-mom-mom-mom' is pretty entertaining.

So what if my child is delusional? I will love her anyway.

- Steve taking the recycling out last night for this morning's pick-up, since I was too late in getting it out last week, and our garage was being overrun with old magazines and aluminum cans. I am especially grateful for this because I overslept this morning and came pretty close to missing the pick-up for the second straight week.

Yes, if I hadn't stayed up playing gin on my iPad last night, I probably wouldn't have overslept, but I'm going to say it was totally worth it.

- No line at the gas station this morning!

It's the little things that get me, I guess...

- Being able to take a vacation with my family.

Ok, I like the big things, too...

- And most importantly, receiving a cheerful diagnosis from Brigid's cardiologist.

Hands down, that won the week, right there. Yay, B's heart!

Happy Friday, everyone!


  1. Jacob also loves Lady Gaga. He favorite is Bad Romance. When Brigid is a little older, you can teach her this joke:

    How do you wake up Lady Gaga?

    Pok'er Face.

  2. Hahaha at that joke! That's cute!

    I think B is adorable! I love the little things they do at this age. They just melt my heart!

    Have fun on vacation!
