Daily Diary – September 11 2011

Today’s family shots were in the morning but we didn’t have much better luck. Nathaniel chased after the remote.

and when we said no, he was all drama.

feeling really sorry for himself.

by the time we managed to make him smile, David was eyeing the remote.

after one brief second, we just gave up and started tickle time. Today, we told David he could tickle daddy instead of the other way around and he went for it full force.

I still tickled the little boy.

but he quickly realized the other two were having more fun and started in on daddy as well.

both kids totally loved it. Daddy…not as much.

then Jake went to work, I did art, David played and Nathaniel napped. When he woke up he was all rested and pink.

he loves playing with legos.

and I love the little smile I caught.

Then Daddy came home and we went out to target to buy both kids some sticker books and we also bought a you-build Monopoly game for family night. So we got some food, and spent the night playing. It was a wonderful family time and both kids went down now and I have to check up on work to make sure all is ok but then I plan to relax during the last few hours of my weekend. Here’s to a great week.

Three Things I’m Grateful For:
1. I am grateful that we’re alive and healthy today. ten years ago we both worked downtown Manhattan, right near ground zero. We were both incredibly lucky to be at home right when the planes hit and I remember this day with deep gratitude every single year. We are lucky to be alive and I don’t want to take it for granted for one single moment.
2. I am grateful that for a few minutes today, the kids and I listened to loud music and they both danced.
3. I am grateful for a wonderful family night.

Three Things David’s Grateful For:
1. I am grateful that we played you-build monopoly. * {his pick for the journal}
2. I am grateful that i got a star wars lego encyclopedia.
3. I am grateful that I got to have half a cookie.

    I love the tickle pictures for today. How fun for David to tickle his dad this time. I’m so glad that ten years ago you were at home and not at work. What a horrible thing for anyone to have to see and live thru. Thankful for you and your family being safe and that I found you. Have a good week!!
