Thankful Thursday - Short & Sweet

It's Thursday evening already and my munchkin spent the entire day at work with me.  She was sent home from school yesterday with a fever and can't return until Friday.

Today, no fever.  So, we brought her cot, DVD player, some toys, and coloring books and she spent the day in the corner office entertaining herself and napping like a champ.  She did surprisingly well, and was even treated to a Chick Fil A lunch with Momma and a trip to Target to break up the day.

This picture of her cracks me up, because it is so "Camdyn."  Dirty hands from playing in the sand and dirt, clutching her favorite dinosaur toys because dinos are so much cooler than barbies.  She's sweaty, and can barely stand still long enough for me to take a picture. 

Love this kid.


Here are a few things I am Thankful for this week:

81).  The hubs.  If you need reasons read this post
82).  My girlfriends, because the long overdue lunch we shared this week was well worth the wait
83).  SYTYCD because it's nice to lose myself in a show for an hour or two
84).  My job, because they let me bring my kid to work so I don't have to squander more vacation time
85).  My kid, who is finally starting to "get it" and now says things like "Yes, Mother" instead of arguing...ding ding ding!
86).  The sweet advice from bloggin' mommas who have battled night terrors.  Now that I'm not picking Belle up in the middle of them they seem easier to handle
87).  My Dyson.  Seriously, love that machine
88).  Home made chicken pot pie
89).  The book "How to Behave so your Pre-schooler will too" because it is teaching me and the hubs how to bring about desired behavior in a positive and productive manner.
90).  A long over-due date night that will happen on Monday.

I love chicken pot pie. I have never tried to make it myself though. Do you have a good recipe?

Yeah, date night!! And yeah for getting up to speed on the positive parenting. I've heard great things about that book. I need to check it out. I'm jealous about the job bit. That's pretty cool, I tell you what! :)

What a cute photo. I'm not sure if my daughter would have behaved as well. Well maybe as long as she was by my side.

A cot and movies. That sounds awesome. Made awesomer by the Chick Fil A.

I want a Dyson! Have you seen the new fan by Dyson? No blades! Just a big circle with wind coming out!

Oh, you reminded me that I need a night with the ladies. SERIOUSLY.
