Why I Had A Great Day

Today started out early— that wasn't the good part :> I woke up at 6:49am and couldn't get back to sleep. It was probably due to this wee bit of mucus that keeps running down my upper pipes and continuously making me cough [I've been coughing so much, my abs feel like they've been getting more of a workout than they have in months!]. On the bright side, I caught up on some of my YouTube-watching :>

We didn't have any out-of-normal plans other than that it would be just me and Nui Nui going out because Mom's shingles is getting painfully worse.

When I spend time with Nui Nui alone, things are just different. There aren't multiple people she can feed off from and so, I don't know, maybe it's the dynamic. Perhaps she's a little more responsive because she knows only one person is there looking after her? Again, I don't know. But it's not surprising, as probably most (if not all) of us exhibit this kind of behavior difference depending on differing social situations.

Anywho, that aside, Nui Nui took her nap around her usual school-time schedule (12-2pm), after which she woke up in a really good and calm mood and we had lunch together. I sat on one side of the table and she opposite of me. We've only had this type of seating arrangement when we've been together alone and, while we missed Mom at home, the arrangement is admittedly really nice. I sat on one side, she on the other, and she actually sat there (for a decent amount of time for a toddler), and we had conversation. Actual conversation. Back and forth banter. It was just really nice and totally made my day, amongst the rest of the day :>

The talk was small but, nevertheless, completely invaluable— chit chat about what we were eating, the day of the week, our schedules this week, birthdays and holidays, etc.

I think all stages have their perks and I imagine this new one is one I know I'm going to really enjoy and look forward to in the many (many) years to come :>

Her face says it all :>

What did you enjoy about this weekend?
