One thing about writing these happy days every day is doing, is definitely making me think about all the smiles I got that day. For example, I can think of 3 things that made me simply happy.
a. While getting ready for school , we were talking about kids not having both their mom and dad live with them, or a kid in his class who stays with her grandparents because her parents are in the military etc; At the end, he says, my home will be where ever you are amma. Being with you makes me happy 🙂 It was so heartfelt and sincere because he was feeling sad about all those kids who do not stay with their mommies. Is there an emoticon that shows me flying away in the sky?
b. He got a 9 on 12 on his smiley chart today which gave him TV access. Good, because we both watched the first half of Moana (yet again) and were laughing out loud (yet again) 🙂
c. I stepped out today after being cooped in the house since we returned from NH on sunday. That too, because the boy insisted that he wanted to take a soft toy to school tomorrow because everyone else is getting theirs. We picked up a dinosaur soft toy and then the husband decided to leave me there to buy milk and other boring stuff while he took Sam to class. A blessing in disguise 🙂 I got the chance to leisurely browse through every isle of the Christmas shop. I love this season of joy. The lights, the decorations and the colors – sometimes it could be repeat too but it always makes me smile and I enjoy this browsing. I have already bought more than 100$ worth of Christmas toys for my Gombe habba next year – it was on my to-do list for a long time. 😀
