First of all I want to thank every one that stop by the blog in this past days, you have no idea how much this means to me. Thank you all for such nice comments.

Today was an amazing day for me.

I woke up with tons of things in my mind (as always), and thinking what a busy and stressful day was going to be... Im not good with stress, you will tell me: but who is good with stress? well, I know a lot of people that do well with stress, that doesn't mean they like it, but they do well, they manage themselves..  

Me?!!! not so good  I really panic, I sweat, I mumble, I forget, I trip all over the place, I get hurt of course because of the tripping thing, I branch a lot ( that means my thoughts start going all over the place in less than a second and I can't focus) I yell and this is when usually a green monster starts overcoming my nice and sweet me...  not a pretty picture.

So, today I woke up with that butterfly  feeling that tells me is not going to be a nice day.. 
I'm trying to get my 2 girls to get dress ( which if u have a 2 and a 4 year old together in the same room you'll know that this can take at least 20 min. they giggle they chase each other, they jump OHH WHAT FUN!!!  but dear reader is not when u have to be at their school at 8:20 and is already 8:20 and both girls are still in panties), by this time the baby is usually wide awake and having a blast watching the whole family circus going all over the place, but today he was still asleep. I grew up with a Dad that his favorite hobby was to wake you up when the best part of your dreams were on... 
That is why I try so hard for my children to wake up when they are ready to do so..
I believe in the power of sleep, the more you sleep the happier you are!!! 

So going back to baby .. everyone was ready to part.. and baby asleep, profoundly sleep. It was gorgeous , sooo beautiful and peaceful.. and looking at him I was thinking to myself,  how in the world can I wake this little one and take him out in the cold weather? (beautiful cold weather by the way: it was snowing! we live in georgia!! little snow of course but snow).
Anyway just about to wake him up, Husbando of mine comes to me and says: don't wake him I'll take the girls to school ,.. ohh he is such a blessing , he saw it too, he saw how that little one needed that sleep sooo bad and that he was enjoying that moment so very much and in that moment I knew that this day was going to be a special day with my little potato next to me.. and like my Dad says all the time.. We did nothing and we did it very slow! 

I decided to focus in the little tiny things and to worry about the rest for tomorrow.. and it was an amazing day with the little one.

I linked over from Diane Duda's blog too. Funny, because as soon as I saw your illustrations, I knew that we had already "met" thru Etsy. Do you recall I mentioned you on my blog because you were the first person to ever "favorite" my Etsy shop! So I can't believe what a Small Blog World it is!
