Thankful Thursday

One of my favorite bloggers does Thankful Thursdays.
In an effort to focus on gratitude this year, and force myself to blog regularly, I’ve decided to give it a shot.
This week, she’s grateful for a husband who changes diapers which made me think of two things I’m grateful for.
1.       The end of diapers is in sight!  I’m sure we’re still months away, but I’m grateful for little girls who are growing up!  As much as I love cuddling babies, I LOVE kids.  The things that come out of their mouths make us laugh everyday.  We can do fun things together.  They help around the house.  Being spontaneous is possible again, we no longer have to pack up half the house to leave for a day out.
2.       A husband who cooks.  I like cooking when I have time, but right now, time is in short supply.  I am super-grateful to have a husband who puts creative, nutritious, delicious dinners on the table at least 5 days a week.  This also means I get delicious lunches every day from the leftovers!  There’s something about being cooked for that makes me feel loved and nurtured.  It’s also an amazing thing for my girls to see that cooking can be fun, easy, and enjoyable.
