I met my niece early this morning and was planning to leave from there to go to Michael's work to pick him up, but when I got to the parking lot & tried to leave my car wouldn't start. After a while and some help from a few nice strangers we got it going again...by that time Michael had already left work to come rescue us, so he was able to just follow us home. I was glad my niece was there and I wasn't just stranded on my own with my babies - that could be a scary situation. It could've been a bad situation in so many ways & thankfully it wasn't.
Then tonight the kids &I went to meet Hello Kitty & we were in the midst of a million kiddos and parents (okay, maybe that's an exaggeration) & standing in line for a while to get our faces painted & meet Hello Kitty. Emma was so good staying in line like a big while I kept Aaron entertained. After a while he was happy to be entertained watching home movies on my phone while we waited on Emma to finish getting her face painted. So, like I said they didn't give me a hard time and I was so proud of them for that, but it also made me think about all those single moms out there doing it every single day - and sometimes with kids that don't always listen. We did have a great time, though and Emma & Aaron loved meeting Hello Kitty! They gave lots of big hugs, especially Aaron! It was really too cute!
The third thing today that made me think about it was bath time. Bath time isn't usually an issue - Michael & I have our routine of duties that make this a smooth routine. Tonight, though I had to rush and pull them both out at the same time, rush them dripping and soapy into the shower, & clean out the tub all at the same time. Why? Well, let's just say Aaron couldn't wait to get out of the tub to potty! EEeeeewwww! Yes - needless to say while they were hanging out in the shower I was bleaching the tub! LOL!
So, to all the single moms out there, my niece being one of them, I have you in my thoughts and I know heaven has special angels up there watching out for you.
(In case you're wondering, tonight is softball so that's where Michael was during Hello Kitty and bath time tonight!)
I also have to share this picture of my girl - we went shopping for some color to put in the flower beds yesterday - it was so pretty outside & she was riding around with her daddy helping him pick them out! She was looking way too cool!!!
