Same old routine - milk, banana, bottle, coffee. But this time, I woke up Ben and spent some time with my coffee and bible with just Ella (beggars can't be choosers). I like the whole 9-5 thing. It means that we can have breakfast together, take in a little John Stott and then get on with our day and today, that meant preschool. I pack Jakob's snack up and today he chose to take his Thomas Suitcase. After our first sign of reluctance towards preschool, Jakob finally surrendered to the plethora of cars, trucks and activity and I went right next door to the church, where Tuesday morning means staff meeting. I actually like meetings- I really do, I think I am one of the only people I know that does but regardless it is a good time to share what is going on with all of the ministries at the Tab. When staff meeting ends early enough or on days like today when we took a short recess, I pop into Mom's time out. Today there was even a seat for me, as opposed to last week. This, in essence is beautiful - a place for mother's to rest and rejuvenate. I am so thankful for this ministry and the women who take care of our precious children.
When I got home the kids were both sleeping. Oh, do I need to repeat that. THE KIDS WERE BOTH SLEEPING! Now that, is beautiful. Work continued as is the trend on Tuesdays but not before I stopped in at the Fruit Truck. I mused with another patron that the day is drawing near when we will be back to apples, oranges and bananas but for at least one more week....we have the fruit truck.
