ME Challenge - Week 5

How is it possible we are already on week 5? Craziness I tell you! It will be my babies 3rd birthday in 11 days, REALLY? How is that possible?

Anyways, on to my ME time! I hope you agree that what I consider my ME time this week counts. I actually shared it with 2 others. I had 2 unexpected days off work that I was able to spend with my babies! It was grand! I got unlimited kisses, hugs and snuggles! They are too sweet! I love how they understand and express emotions now. I can pretend to cry and they want to make it all better. They will say "it's O.K. Mom" and " do you want me to kiss it". After they kiss it they will say "it's all better". It is such a different experience now that I can have conversations with them! I love it! Molly has started whistling this past week....I can not even whistle! Luke has started counting backwards from 5 to 0. so much changes so fast that I feel very special to have gotten those 2 bonus days. They are my life and I love them to the moon!

I'm anxious to get to those days! 3 sounds so OLD! So did 30 at one point... Snow days are really a blessing in disguise, glad you got your cuddles in!

So nice to have extra time at home with your kids. Sounds like you had some great moments with them too.

Tiny recently started whistling too, and I was amazed. She can't whistle a tune or anything, but she can get a nice, clear one note whistle out. She's so proud of herself.

I hope the party planning is going well. I'm sure the next 11 days will fly by! Can't wait to hear all about the birthday fun!

I love it! Hubby had an unexpected day off too. His office was closed because we had ice in Texas! :)
It's nice just to relax and spend time with your family!
Thanks for linking up!

Of course it counts. I say if it brings you joy, it counts. :-)
