What Did You Do All Day?

Don't you just LOVE this question?
What did you do all day?
I know I sure do.

I don't think my husband Steve has ever asked this is the negative connotation, that can easily be interpreted by the multi-tasking, over achieving, stressed out and exhausted Mom of three, but sometimes I feel like saying, "Well, honey cakes, what DIDN'T I do today?"

But I do not.

Instead I try to give him all the details that he missed out on during our amazing day together.

I tell him how caught Gracie dancing to the rhythm of our black lab Gussie drinking her water.

And how we played "Get You" for an hour and that this entails me saying, "Gracie, I'm going to get you!" And then her repeating back to me, "GET YOU!" over and over again while smiling ear to ear running around the living room.

And I can't forget about the cute fact that for approximately two hours she said "Your Velcome" every time I handed her something instead of thank you.

I also tell him how Sophie said to me, "Mommy, tickle my neck!" Then when I did she giggled, "Daddy do's that to me all the time."

And then I fill him in that Sophie hurt her "nickle" today. And when he asks me what that means I will explain that she pointed to her ankle when she said, "Ouch, Mom, I hurt my nickle!"

I also tell him that when we opened up the special cat food that Santa left for Booty Cat Sophie took a sniff and said, "Wow, that smells like steak!"

I can't forget to explain to him how bright Mia is and how she can read about 100% more words than she could last week.

And how she sat at the kitchen table doing a Kindergarten workbook for an hour smiling at her accomplishments.

I will tell him how she is so proud of doing her daily chore of taking care of our dogs and eagerly asks me if it's time to feed them dinner.

I am so excited to fill him in about her AWESOME new song she is learning in Kindergarten that has her reciting every single President of the United States in order!

But this particular day, when he came home and said, "What did you do all day?" I was able to give him a glimpse with these fun pictures I took in the late morning.

They were playing in their hot spot, the landing between two sections of stairs leading up to our second floor.

They were smiling.
Loving one another.

This picture is my favorite and I feel it completely summarizes my life at this very moment.
Three crazy blondes.
Loving each other.
There is nothing better.
