A Little Better

I felt like we got a beautiful and long-forgotten glimpse of healthy Maggie this weekend. For the first time in a while. And oh, how I missed her. I love sick Maggie too, I promise, but she absolutely breaks my heart. Also, she doesn't let me sleep very well. There was so much giggling and smiling. I was starting to forget what that was like, and beginning to wonder if I ever really knew what that was like in the first place.

My absolute favorite thing that happened this weekend: Hannah was singing, "If you're happy and you know it." Maggie was in the next room and all of the sudden heard the words and started doing the motions (clapping her hands, point at her "your face will surely show it" smile, throwing her arms up in the air and even saying, "HURRAY!").

My least favorite thing, Hannah gave herself a black eye climbing on a chair. Also, she has a cold and feels pretty crumby. One day, everyone will be healthy and happy and bruise free. Right? That is possible?



  1. Seriously? Did she really need to do the black eye? Sheesh. Good injury/illness free thoughts your way.

    1. I know, right?! And we kept her home today (she was just whiney and tired from the respiratory virus thing) and she got another bump on her head. I'm about to institute a 24/7 helmet policy around my house:(
