I didn’t mean to go so long without posting anything. To be honest, my kids weren’t so generous to me in the sleep department last week. But that’s a post for another day. For now I’ll relish in the simple weekend we shared.
Usually our Saturdays are packed with running errands, cleaning the house, visiting family or going to somebody’s birthday party. (We belong to a large church, so it seems someone’s always having a party or event.) But on this Saturday, we took it easy.
Jason wanted to finish our taxes in peace, without all the loud toys James Charles plays with, while Audrey crawls around looking to eat stuff the vacuum cleaner missed. So I grabbed them and headed to the park.
James Charles told me to hurry and get Audrey to the car “so she won’t be cold anymore.” “Come on Audrey! Don’t be cold,” he says. I scooped her up and did as I was told. My heart melts thinking of how he’s always looking out for her. (At night it’s hard to get him to bed if he doesn’t get his kisses from Audrey. I pray they’re always kind to each other.)
When we got home, Jason was almost finished with the taxes. I prepared dinner and we got the kids ready for bed. Reflecting on our day, it wasn’t eventful, by most standards. Some might say it was a little boring. But for me, it was just a simple Saturday.
And we need those sometimes.
