But I had a really good mommy Monday yesterday.
I've been enjoying getting my long runs in on Monday mornings, and since I did 10 miles last week, I decided to cut back to eight and a half yesterday. I'm usually finishing up my run just as the sky is starting to lighten, and then I'm showered and ready to go by the time the kids wake up.
Once Jonah went down for his morning nap, I got in some time in the Word while Noelle watched Strawberry Shortcake. I'm continuing the Lent series on She Reads Truth, and today I was reminded of the fact that my efforts to draw closer to Christ don't make me "better" to Him- I'm already loved by Him beyond measure. What a great truth!
so proud of himself for knocking over a chair and standing on it
Our afternoon fun involved a trip to the library, and then a date at Dunkin Donuts where the three of us split a chocolate chip muffin and I got my free iced coffee. The perfect afternoon pick me up, and a good reason to get out of the house. I got a little punch card in the mail a few weeks ago for a free medium iced coffee for six Mondays in March and April and I have used them all so far!
More play time and then baths for the littles before dinner with Daddy. And then the usual "Once Upon A Time" viewing and ice cream with Aunt Lydia. I'd say it was a good Monday!
