I love….

by Wendy Copley on February 24, 2009

I was up at 6:00 am this morning to change a poopy diaper and never got back to sleep. I know I’m supposed to say, “I love these times of peace and quiet when everyone else in the house is asleep,” but I DON’T. I hate being up that early. I hardly get any sleep as it is, so it’s like a slap in the face to wake up an hour earlier than usual. And it wasn’t quiet because the garbage truck was making its way around the neighborhood. Also, there wasn’t any sugar for my tea. I’ve been kind of cranky all day. Wah! Wah! Wah!

So I’ve decided to make a list of things I actually like — even love — to flip my mood around:

I love fresh baked, home made bread. I love Augie’s fat little wrists. I love phone calls with my mom. I love when my dad posts to his blog. I love when Wyatt’s play involves him talking in a robot voice for ten minutes straight. I love when people comment on my blog posts. I love when people comment on my photos on Flickr. I love how Augie growls when he bites his toys. I love tea (when I have sugar to put in it). I love taking photos of my kids. I love my new scrapbook paper. I love Tina Fey and how funny she is and how we would be BEST friends if we ever met. I love to write. I love magazines. I love unemployment (except for the no paycheck part). I love unemployment insurance. I love walking around with the baby in the carrier. I love laundry that’s been folded. I love giving Wyatt toys and cookies and candy and letting him watch movies (but I hate showing restraint for his own good). I love cookies. I love Augie’s heart-shaped tongue. I love how my bento supplies look in their box.

    I love your “I love..” post! Beautiful bento supplies by the way. Do they have Japanese craft magazines at the store where you get all of your bento supplies?

  • Martha — No, they don’t have craft magazines. That would be great!

    I totally love your blog, Wendy! I don’t get on here that often, but every time I do it makes me smile. When my son was little, I had a home daycare for 3 years. The imaginary play was my favorite – there’s something great about listening to children talk to their toys!

    We love some of the same things. I especially love cookies and talking on the phone to you – though I really don’t like talking on the phone to hardly anyone else.

    You have no idea how many people LOVE YOU!!!! You are inspirational in a “who, me, this is just my life” kind of way. I will not mention the Rach Ray idea again, but what about Parents magazine ? Your Bento’s are just so fresh and I really feel like there is a market out there. Oh, I know!!!! You could start ( in all that spare time that you do not have) Bentoware. Like Tupperware only with Bento supplies. And show the dullwitted among us (me, me, that would be me) how to provide our loved ones with these works of art each day for their lunches. You go girl, and take it from me. Always get packets of sugar when you go out. They will fit in that purse and you will be eternally grateful when you run out . These are pearls of wisdom. LOL

  • Karol — You crack me up! You are so kind and you are so right too. The only thing I could think when I was digging through the cupboard for some sugar was, “If ONLY I’d stashed some sugar packets in my purse!!”

  • I really liked this post! I will have to do an “I Love” post someday!!! I think Karol is onto something with the bentoware or Parents magazine ideas. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I am laughing out loud at Wyatt’s comment on your hair. We were at the Country Club swimming pool one afternoon and I was already feeling self concious about my dimply thighs when my sweet son called out over the entire pool of thirty something ubermommies, ” Mom, one of your teeth is not near as yellow as the other ones.” This is why we let the grandchildren get by with anything, payback, my dear.
