So, a little while ago in a post far, far away, I said I would count all the ways in which I love coffee, and I would happily spend my life doing so and expressing it here in this gratitude blog.
Enter today peeps.
I mean, I didn’t plan on going down Main street. I promise I didn’t. But a chore I had to do fell through, and here baby girl and I were on Cup Day, dressed up, in the car, with nothing to do.
She asked me as I turned into our fave strip “Mama why go here?”
I was silent for a long while. I wanted to surprise her. “I just want to see what’s open.”
In true literal and toddler fashion, she then proceeded to point out every single shop that was open.
After circling the block a couple of times, I made up my mind. And we headed on over to a local fave for a quick stop on this public holiday.
We missed Hubbie/Dad very much. Baby girl expressed her desire to share a biscuit with him. But somehow she managed to get by, and downed her babycino, while I treasured my chai latte, and then together we smashed an Oreo muffin, NOT pictured because you know… smashed Oreo muffin.
It wasn’t life-altering, it wasn’t squealing with excitement fun, and it wasn’t the bestest thing I had ever done. But it was a precious moment that I was grateful to be sharing with baby girl, and as long as it is something to be enjoyed, it is enough.
And then also, as I always say, it’s the little things.
We then went home, and discovered with happiness that Hubbie was on his way home, let off his work shift earlier that day.
We didn’t win in the 3pm race, but we won in the most important one 🙂
