Monday morning felicity

felicity is a lovely word.
Main Entry:
Part of Speech:


Yesterday, the husband told me as he was changing this guy’s diaper, “You know, it’s not fair, I had to work hard for you to fall in love with me, but Hudson didn’t have to do a thing.
**For the record, he didn’t have to work that hard…
Anyways, I’m blessed that I get to stay home and hang out with my smaller, best friend all day.  So many people dread that whole going back to work on Monday morning thing, but I don’t have to return to work, maybe because my job is full-time, plus nights and weekends… but there are perks.
…like little cute face sharing goldfish crackers with you, of course, after sharing most of them with the floor.
… and we determine the dress code.  If we think it’s cute Christmas PJ day, then it’s cute Christmas pj day.  No questions asked.
… and most days include a photo shoot.
… with lots of cute face’s smiles.
… And games like knock over the rain boots.
Sometimes, we have to put away the laundry that is taking over the bedroom floor and clean the kitchen, if there is still a kitchen in there, under the mountain of dishes, but we try not to do that too often, because we’d rather play with the soccer ball and carry around little tug boats all… day… long.
And all day long I teach him the importance of speaking proper English, which means I’m putting my degree to use.  For example, when I say, “No, you can’t climb over the back of the couch.”
So, that’s my job… I don’t plan on quitting anytime soon.


  1. I love the sound of that word and the way it rolls off the tongue.
    You do your job very well. You are a great mother.

  2. Beautiful sentiments. Thanks for putting it out there like this. I couldn't agree with you more. I found myself saying the other day that I'm "just a mom" The other person took it as a put down on myself, but I didn't mean it to be a negative at all: This is what I do. It's my only "job". And I love it.


Here's the thing: I love your comments.
So thank you.

Have a lovely day.
Drink some coffee.
