Today I woke up early and, although I should be a teeny weeny bit frustrated that Soren has this new tendency to climb in bed with us during the middle of the night, I'm in a very good mood. (I wouldn't mind it much but since we have lived in Scotland we have a double bed which is smaller than a queen.) I think I'll try the "bed by the side of the bed" strategy.

Things that make me happy. . .

Play lists that Jason makes for me and how happy he gets when I listen to them.
Soren crawling around like a tiger and dancing while Jason plays the guitar.
How much Soren loves pasta and occasional carrots while reading bedtime stories.
Jason's breakfasts.
Hearing Soren say prayers.
Alone time--walking to the stores on Byres Rd. or just being alone like right now.
Talking with family on the phone.
Discussions with Jason about life and politics and religion and humanity and. . . anything.
Jason's creative facial hair designs.
Dancing and stretching during the day.
Reading a good book and finishing it!
Thinking about the sun and vacations in the sun.
Thought provoking art.
Being a part of art.
Seeing how my family and friends make aspects of their lives art.

Ok, I'm going to go and stretch now while I have some alone time. Isn't it great to be a woman--that's another thing that makes me happy! To be a woman.

PS. The boys are still sleeping! Shhh.

I loved talking to you on the phone last night. Just as I hung up, Paris came down the stairs to get in bed with us. We have a double bed too! She slept on the futon that we have stored under our bed- too many nights of little sleep or getting hit in the face. You are a good mom. I love you.

Cammie I love this post. Sometimes in the middle of the night Rose will come into our bed and we are so zonked out that we only find out in the morning when we have no sheets on us. So many similar thoughts. Oh yes, and sorry about that project playlist- I don't really know how to set it up, Devon does.
