I have to admit that does sound like a pretty darn good day.
Today, the girls were super excited to go to school because choir is taking a “tour” of all the elementary schools. The choir is visiting each school and performing two songs.
Cool in itself, but the thing they were most excited about is they get to stop at the mall and eat lunch. Pretty sure, that it will earn a “Best Day Ever” from the girls.
On Sunday, we went to Toys R Us, which is about 30 miles away. We went because I needed ideas for Easter gifts, and everyone including my husband loves the toy store. It was also an excuse to take a drive in our new-to-us car. The kids spent the entire ride ooohing and aahing about the backseat (size, amount of pockets, etc.) and admiring the sunroof.
We even went out to lunch. On the drive home, the kids all declared it the “Best Day Ever” and we didn’t even buy them any toys.
In general, my kids use “Best Day Ever” a lot, which makes my heart happy. Most of the things are simple things too, not a trip to Disneyland, but a trip to the toy store.
As adults, we don’t think in terms of “Best Day Ever” but maybe we should. And, it shouldn’t take winning the lottery to make it our best day.
So, today is my “best day ever” because the kids were all happy this morning, no fighting etc. and when I stopped at the gas station for my daily newspaper they had my favorite breakfast bar in stock. Also, my favorite bead website has a fun Easter egg hunt going on the website (you find the hidden eggs and win prizes) so far I found enough eggs to win a coupon and a free strand of beads.
Is there something that makes this the “Best Day Ever” for you?
