A Day in the Life of a Four Year Old

Fatigue does not even begin to describe me tonight.......I have spent the day with Jordan (my four year old great nephew).  He is wonderful, but we have done  LOTS of stuff today.  I had brought almost thirty yoga mats home from work last night to wash today, so we did that.  We picked blueberries.  We carried ice tea to Rick and Ray as they worked on the barn today.  We sprayed each other with the water hose.
We blew bubbles, we watched his favorite cartoon shows.  We cooked lunch.  It has been an eventful day and I am so tired my eyes are crossed.  But I know he had fun, because he did not want to go home.

It is a good tired.  Even the dogs are tired. Blackie Bear looked at me this afternoon with his big sad eyes as if to say, when is this child going home?  But I know in the twinkling of an eye, Jordan will be an adult and I want him to have good memories of us. I just wish I had his energy, I am so envious.

So tonight, a hot bath, a cup of tea, and bed are calling my name.
Good night, Sweet dreams


  1. It's called "quality time" for a reason! Sweet dreams.

  2. Awwwww time with Jordan is such fun! Take care

  3. My daughter is three years old and... I know what you mean when you talk about fatigue.

  4. I give you so much credit for keeping up with him! That age is so adorable but sooooo tiring!

  5. Perhaps the biggest mistake we make, which leads to loss of self-esteem, making the views of others is more important than our own opinion of himself. "- Wayne Dyer, saying

    thank you for it
