Day 70: Spoiled Secrets

Today's Joyful Moment was going to be finally recieving my free t-shirt from making it to the gym 45 times since February 8th, but then that got beat.

Let me start by saying that today was horrid.

I won't go into further detail. Tonight I took Sweet P to violin lessons while HH took Little M with him to get his haircut. Sweet P and I ran a little errand on the way home, so I was really surprised that the guys weren't back yet by the time we got home.

Fortunately, they got home a short while later. Little M came in the door and promptly told me, "Mommy, I'm not going to tell you that we got you flowers and chocolates. I'm not going to tell you." And he was so so serious about that statement.

HH was a little disappointed, but I think it was my first real, genuine smile of the day. First, the sincerity in Little M's declaration--he really thought he was keeping the secret just as Daddy wanted. And second, that HH was so thoughtful and got me two of my very favorite things.

It went a long way in making today--and life in general--better. A very long way.

My Joyful Moment.

Wishing you all Joyful Moments as lovely (and tasty) as these.

Heath gave Keali candy this morning with explicite instructions to not tell me. So she came into my room and told me that she promised Daddy she wouldn't tell me that he gave her candy.
Gotta love kids!

Oh wow- Blake must have earned about a MILLION BAJILLION bonus points for that!

My joyful moment was that Weston decided to not do his homework and took a walk with me instead! oh and he also made dinner and then did the dishes. Yay for husbands!
