1. Thanks to outsourcing the bedtime routine last night to Nana, I slipped into the shower all by myself (with no little girls anywhere remotely near the bathing premises). But that’s not all. I also managed to overcome the big preggo belly obstacle and shaved my legs without leaving too much bristle behind.
2. The reason for my leg-shaving efforts is twofold. First, my husband is on his way home after being out of town in D.C. for an entire month for mandatory work training. I survived sans my husband AND I respected his wishes (for security reasons) and didn’t even blog about it until now (this counts as my success #2 for this week). Second, I don’t want to go into labor and have my midwife and/or L&D nurse suggest I invest in a Furminator.
3. I received an early birthday present the other night (I turn the big 3-0 this weekend). The girls and I were curled up together in bed and I’d just finished reading the last book when out of the blue, my 4-year-old wrapped her arms around me and said, “You’re the best Mommy in the whole world.” Call me a big sucker, but that made everything – even the relentless bedtime stalling– well, well worth it.
