Welcome Back, Mommy.

I am just feeling so very (choose one, any of them work) lucky/happy/grateful/in love today.

The sun is shining and the flowers are all in bloom. I was a packing machine yesterday (and I made up for my lack of moving organization over the past 2 weeks). I have been able to go on 2 nice long runs this weekend. AND I have had 2 (count ’em!) full nights of sleep this weekend! I’m talking over 7 hours, each night. Would have had even more except I stayed up, get this…reading a book. Not a Sandra Boynton or Elmo book, an honest-to-goodness, mommy, chick-lit BOOK!

Just for anyone taking notes – not that there is going to be a pop quiz or anything – but a “good to know” equation:

Beautiful day + exercise + sleep + leisure time = one VERY happy mommy.

And that is all I have to say about that.

The sleep part of the above equation is due to the fact that A. is back on track again. Thank you, thank you, thank you sweet girl! And it is amazing the difference in her little attitude. She is downright civil! It is like someone took my two tantrum girlies from last week and replaced them with two lovely little cherubs. I am seriously loving it.

Today A. and I had a little alone time, we went to lunch and did a little IKEA shopping and, just like my date with E. on Friday, we had an amazing time. She was perfect. She is so personable and soooo funny. I really love when she is well-rested and her real personality shines through.

I guess the moral of our little story here is that we need to divide and conquer. Although I feel like they get a lot of attention, maybe they really just need a little more personalized attention. A little more one-on-one time.

I think I can do that. Especially now that I am getting more sleep in one night than I was previously getting in 3 nights combined.  I’m back in the land of the living.
