to be Loved

This morning I woke up at 8:30.

It's almost unheard of, right? Unless you're my mother who brags about being able to sleep until 9 because she no longer has anyone to make breakfasts or lunch for. Your secret is out mom!

The strangest part was that the house was dead silent. I kept trying to pick up on sounds of the girls fighting, dishes crashing to the floor, or water running and splashing, but...nothing. Talk about disorientating.

After laying there about 5 minutes in complete silence I ventured out into the family room to assess any damage.

And there were my two girls. Fed. Sitting on the couch together watching John Legend on Sesame Street. All thanks to a guy who knows I'm not feeling well, had a restless night, and an exam later today.

Yes, it's good to be loved.

I kiss my TV every day and thank it for giving me just a few extra minutes of sanity whenever necessary. Once in awhile I feel like I actually owe Dora money for babysitting...maybe she could use it to buy a new shirt. A longer one that will cover her cute little latina ponza of hers. Yay for sleeping in! Hope you feel better soon!

We lOvE this episode at my house. In fact I wish I had a cd of just the remakes on the Street. So cute. Have you seen the remake of "Hey there Delilah?" That one was fun.
