Today was a day that reaffirmed my belief in Karma. After all the shit that has been thrown my way this week, I stood tall and never sunk to a level beneath myself or did something I'd regret later. As tempting as doing something like that was in the heat of the moments..I even returned IDL's money for the carseat yesterday and washed my hands of the whole mess. Because it just wasn't worth it all at the end of the day.
That felt good.
Chilling last night, watching Nixon dancing around to Michael Jackson's "Smooth Criminal" video before bed was very good. (see video below, because my kid's got some natural moves, yo!)
Sleeping in, as a family, until a few minutes before noon this morning, felt AMAZING!! Nixon came into the bedroom around 730am, Mac sent him back to his bedroom telling him it was too early to wake up. Some days that works, some days it doesn't. Today it worked. It worked really well. When Mac and I finally got up just before noon, we had to wake Nixon up! Poor kid, he's not quite used to the whole (literal) sleeping the day away thing and it took him almost 2 hours to shake the sleep off. He just laid around, very quietly, on the sofa. I thought he was sick, and there was a vomiting incident, but he didn't have a fever. He even took a nap for a couple hours!! AND behaved when we ran errands, no throwing a fit and only one mild screaming fit! It was almost perfect!
After his nap he was almost normal. By bedtime he was screeching and working on his way to Time Out.
The moral is: I put good out, I got good back! And it was lovely. A nice morning snuggled in bed with Mac, while we slept it away. With no Nixon jumping on the bed or making a mess in the bathroom. We haven't slept the morning away, together, since before Nixon was born.
