Thursday Thankful Round-Up

As always, I have so much to be thankful for!
  • I am thankful that my children have had two parents to love and care for them since the day they were born.
  • I am thankful for my mom, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins and all the wonderful times with them as I was growing up. Each of them has made a huge impact in my life in his or her own way.
  • I am thankful that my mom didn't give me up for adoption, even though that's what the nuns at the hospital thought would be best for a young, unwed mother back in in 1975.
  • I am thankful that Lucy loves kindergarten enough to want to stay all day, even though she is still half day for now.
  • I am thankful that so far today we haven't had any tears or arguments about staying at school all day.
  • I am thankful that Chris's mom and step-dad came over this morning to take the kids to school, so I didn't have to wake Mathilda up. And that when Mathilda did wake up, she and I got in my bed and snuggled until it was time to get ready to pick Lucy up.
  • I am thankful that my mom came with me last night to the kids' Open House at school, because that place was a mad house and difficult to navigate with four kids.
  • I am thankful Chris had the opportunity to visit his brother in Florida this week.
  • I am thankful Chris is coming home today!
  • I am thankful that even though it's rainy and dreary, it's not terribly cold.
  • I am thankful that when we bumped into Connor's 2nd grade teacher (from last year) at the Open House last night, she had lots of wonderful things to say about him.
  • I am thankful for the great products I have to review in the coming weeks! And that I get to share some of them with my friends.
What are you thankful for this week?

I LOVE that you and Mathilda got such good snuggle I'm so envious of that it as often as you can! I'm thankful I get to join my husband on a work outing tomorrow to watch the US Open....we need a date night! Enjoy your weekend!
