Reasons to smile on Sunday (at my house)

  1. Sir O marching and dancing to MoTab's "Bringing in the Sheaves" (great song from this album.)
  2. Being pregnant on a Fast Sunday. No hunger, no guilt.
  3. Having breakfast in bed brought to you by a fasting husband.
  4. Sir O and Mr Renn looking extra dapper today in matching red and black.
  5. Testimony meeting.
  6. Sir O being well-behaved enough that I actually heard and remember some of testimony meeting.
  7. Surviving primary (only 2 weeks until the Primary Program in Sacrament Meeting!)
  8. Mr Renn making us a nice dinner. Baked potatoes, salad, and bacon. (I think the bacon was originally intended to be a topping for the potatoes, but you know how Mr Renn loves bacon)
  9. Sir O taking his first successful nap on the twin bed in his room.
  10. Perusing old photos as we organize ourselves for certain homemade Christmas presents.
  11. Sir O being really good about putting his toys away when asked.
  12. I actually started the sewing portion of the cradle for the belly monster this week. All I've managed so far is to recover the mattress and make 2 fitted sheets, but sometimes just starting is more than half the battle.
  13. It's actually occurred to us to plan our FHE for tomorrow more than an hour in advance. I'm feeling pretty good about myself.
  14. I've decided that part of the reason I'm lousy at being my own supervisor is because I don't use enough positive reinforcement with myself. I just rub in all the parts I'm failing at and then I fail more. So hopefully if I rub in all the parts I'm doing better at, I'll keep doing better. Hope hope hope.

Well your dinner sounds much more appetizing then mine was.. Oh and thanks so much for the comments, I am really liking #7 also now that I have gone back to look at it.

So are you really going for it? Is O completely out of the crib and into a bed? I'm too chicken to give it a go yet, but I'm thinking about it for Christmas. Like having it be an exciting Christmas present. We'll see.

I really loved your list today. Those things made me smile just reading them.

ooh, I need to reward my positives, too.
Emily you have the best way of saying things that I wish I could say! I love reading what you write. You are just so clever.
I am getting excited for you and the family to have the belly monster out! I can't wait to read all about it!

Yay for Mr. Ren with serving you, what a good husband! Thanks for reminding us to take a second and appreciate the little things Em. I need to do that more often.
