I know I suck. I’m sorry I’ve been MIA. I’m not going to glorify “busy” because that’s not fair and I don’t like to do that. I’m sorry. Truly, madly, deeply sorry.
My little sister started 2nd grade today and she was psyched. I like to let her know that I’m thinking about her, even if I can’t physically be there to wish her a good academic year, I want her to know that I’m sending her good energy and hoping she has a phenomenal first day. She did.
I called to check in on her tonight and she told me E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G about her day. Down to what she wore, who was in her class, who her teacher is and what happened at recess. She was so excited to tell me everything and I was thrilled to hear it all. We talked about her hopes for this year and she told me she was going to be good. You see, she has a habit of wanting to talk and help everyone (gee I wonder where she gets that from) so she is constantly in trouble. But this year is going to be different. I know it will be.
I was just so happy that she wanted to tell me everything about her day. She also told me to call her back tomorrow so she could read me a book. I adore her and her beautiful energy. It was a nice reminder that life is good because it’s a good day when a 7 year old wants to tell you about their day. It’s rad and I dig it. Plus, the hubs parents arrive tomorrow and beyond excited to see them!
Happy Friday folks! Hope you have a phenomenal weekend!
