Easy peasy

Every once in awhile I have some great, easy days with the little guy that I finally start feeling like I really have this parenting thing down. He sleeps in, we have good meals, we're all smiling and happy everywhere we go, etc. 

The last 2 days have been the easy days. He slept in (til 10 today!), we had lunch, did errands all over while without complaints, we danced through the store, we played at the park and the backyard, he took naps like a champ, and went to bed quickly. These are all amazing things to me since most days rarely seem this easy. 

Errands can be fun some days!

Swings and smiles

These are the days that make me think, hey maybe I'm not so crazy to be having another one soon. Maybe I will be able I handle 2 under 2 keeping some of my sanity. They are the days that make me wonder why some days are so much harder. So hard that I dream of being back at work or school so I can get some "alone" time and think I'm not cut out for the stay at home mom gig.

I wish I had the slightest idea what makes  a happy child some days and a terror child the next so that I could make them all be like this. I'm trying to brace myself for tomorrow when he'll likely be back to a crankerpants. We are supposed to get rain which usually makes him cranky for some reason. 

But for now, I'm just enjoying these happy, easy days for a change. Sitting outside as he plays at his water table, splashing happily. Cross your fingers we start getting more days like this. It's fun not going crazy for a change.

Even the dog is happy!
