I am grateful for the amount of sass in my eldest. She is strong and she is confident and those things will serve her well as a woman in today’s world. This morning as we were getting ready, she starts fake crying, so I asked her what was wrong. She said, “I can’t climb the wall and it makes me sad!” She’s something else.
I am grateful for Enid’s growth. We came back here determined to help make our city somewhere our girls will want to stay or return to, however their lives play out. Tonight was the first sold out concert at the new Event Center and it was wonderful.
I am grateful for the bond my girls have with their grandparents. Emeline reached for someone else while I was holding her for the first time last night and it was my mom. I have a pretty close relationship with my extended family, but having both sets of grandparents close enough to spend quality time with multiple times a week is a rare and wonderful thing.
I wrote this last night but forgot to actually publish it… Actually staying out in the evening is not something we do well anymore!
