while driving home from the pharmacy yesterday we were listening to a new cd with fun, silly songs that i grew up on. i started to tear up thinking about teaching our daughter "the cannon" of kids songs, and everything else that a child needs to learn before moving on to adolescence.
she and i were both home instead of at daycare and work, thanks to conjunctivitis. is giving eyedrops to a 6 month old fun? nope. but that necessity paired with spending the day with her on the floor playing and really watching her explore and laugh and reach out to be picked up was great. when jim got home from his all day meeting, i told him "i really felt like a mom today. it was a good day.
