I am thankful for the gorgeous Fall colors that I get to see everywhere when I'm driving to and from here and there. Reminding me how blessed I am to know that God is the one who created this lovely place for us to live and grow with our most precious ones. Our families.
I feel thankful that for the first time I feel like a real Mom. A Mom that actually has her own house to run, and makes playdates, and just knows how to handle having 2 kids all on her own (and that doesnt mean that they never misbehave or that my house is spotless). I am thankful that I get to be the one who knows every single thing about them. Likes and dislikes pertaining to food, clothes, and toys. Scarlett loves to try on everyone's shoes and dress up in dress up clothes and/or Liv's clothes. She is amazing at building block towers and loves to sit and look at books by herself. Liv hates dressing up, but loves her green rain boots. She loves for me to read to her, and she loves to play puppies or with her Minnie mouse dolls. And if you need a few minutes to yourself, she is excellent at drawing, coloring, and painting on her own. Liv loves cheese sticks, carrots, strawberries, cereal and milk, and cauliflower (and ramen noodles and pretzles etc) but hates all things meat. Scarlett loves everything, but especially meat- any kind. I call Liv my vegetarian and Scarlett my carnivore. Love them both and love how different they are from each other. Even though they are so different, they are both so sweet and love each other so much.
And I'm pretty thankful for that, too.
