Perfection

Today has been one of those perfect days.

Sleeping late.Cleaning house. Playing with the kids. Hanging out clothes. Shucking corn on the back porch steps. Watering and tending to the garden. Bathing the dog. Eating brownies.

Lauren hugging me and telling me I'm the best. Connor giving me baby kisses and patting me on the arm when we hug. Charles home early from working over time. Hot dogs on the grill with french fries and a little chili with a cold beer for him and a tequila sunrise (easy grenadine) for me.

Talking to my husband and telling him I love him, and really, deeply meaning it. My husband cradling my face in his hands and telling me that no one could make him happier, telling me that I take such good care of us all and that he will love me until his dieing day.

Watching Charles play baby games with Connor on the living room floor, smiling even bigger when Lauren joined in. Watching the kids pile on top of daddy and giggling until they couldn't catch their breath.

Connor running up to Lauren and hugging her. My cats weaving in and out between my ankles while purring.
Later, I will sit down and watch some of the Nascar race that I hate watching, but I will watch it with him because he likes it and I'll I crochet some baby blankets to give away. Lauren will take a bath and watch movies in her room when it's time for bed. I'll give Connor a bath, and Charles will rock him to sleep and tuck him in his crib.
It just doesn't get any better than this.
