Saying Yes



Today I woke up feeling fantastic! The kids had the day off of school so I decided to steal their best friends and go for a walk on one of our favorite trails. I made it all the way to the end and back and was thrilled to be doing something "normal". When we got back to the car we were all thirsty so we went into the local market to get a drink. Jack and Josh asked if they could have an iced coffee and the girls wanted soda. My normal "mom brain" immediately said no - caffeine, sugar.... but I decided this one time would be OK. Their smiles were priceless. Of course it was followed by many "thank yous" and "Mom you are SOOOOOOO awesome!" (now who couldn't use a little of that?). We went to their favorite lunch place for some wraps and good conversation. Just me and these 4 kids and an incredible day.

Nice! How fun are kids? Everything can be so simple with them sometimes. There's no sweeter sound on earth than a child's laugh.
