somebody was sad today and it pulled at my heart strings.
it all started with sleeping late, which meant waking her up, which meant a groggier start, which meant a rushed morning. then throw in vitamins and a small breakfast and my sensitive tummy little one just didn't feel herself.
the tears trickled down.
and that face,
oh that face i know so well...the "i don't think i can keep this together but i'm fighting it and trying so hard" face.
seeing that internal struggle is tough!
her teachers took over and helped her keep busy.
but as i walked to the car i just knew she was watching me from the window.
and she told me later she was.
it was cute, she told me she was watching me walk away but didn't want to take her eyes off her new friend rachel in case she went somewhere else then she couldn't find her.
i tried to shop and keep my mind busy...oh how i love you target...expecting any minute for my phone to ring.
but it didn't.
can you imagine having your kids at school and being out with no phone??
crazy thought right?
i had a mission to distract me.
a mission to get flip flops.
and i had the note to prove it.
aubrey wanted flip flops just like her big sisters.
i ended up at walmart for those babies.
and you know for me to go into walmart it has to be important!:)
(no offense to walmart or anything!)
i scooped her up and carried her to the car and didn't want to put her down.
am i dramatic or what?!:)
we met daddy for a midweek lunch date and now everything is right with the world.
my baby is cuddled up on the sofa with her imaginary friend, ellie, her bowl of crackers and a wonder pets.
a good day after all.
hope your day was a happy one,
