{Stolen Moment}

After writing yesterday about the lack of simple down time with the girls
I decided that sometimes you just can't wait for a stolen moment
sometimes you have to make one

Nothing says stolen moment like a trip down memory lane
at breakfast time we were reminiscing about JoJo's Circus
one of our favorite kids shows from when they were little
I decided to pick the DVD up from the library
and greet them after school with a big bowl of popcorn and some
unexpected snuggle time
it was wonderful!!!
there was singing
laughing and
lots of snuggling

I wish it could have lasted longer
in all honesty I had to cut it short to dash to a teacher conference
...sigh... there goes that busy life thing again...
I guess that's why they call it a stolen moment
luckily Dave was home to take my spot on the sofa
right in the middle of these three little JoJo lovin' lovelies

Hope you find at least a moment to steal today!
Enjoy the day,


  1. Hey Hey what do you say! We use to love Jo Jo too! You're such a fun mom to suprise the girls after school! They're so lucky!
    I already had my moment this morning! And as a bonus...it's suppossed to rain all day so that means (no tennis!) and we will have zero plans this evening! Yay!
    Enjoy the rest of your day Cindy!

  2. You are a great mom Cindy! I remember Jo Jo!! Griffy is just starting to like Elmo. Have a great day!

  3. Man, that's a blast from the past - we loved JoJo too!! What a great idea - best mom ever!! Those are the things they remember ... well done!!
