Favorite things

My hair looks bad and my eyes look funny, but you know what? It doesn't matter. (Or at least I am telling myself it doesn't matter. I am not here looking for validation about my appearance.) Simon has always been into his Daddy. Bennett goes back and forth. But without a doubt, 100%, this little girl is all about her Mama right now. I am her favorite.

Sometimes it is so hard to be the favorite. Everything takes twice as long with her pulling on my legs. I can't leave the room, eat lunch, or go to the bathroom in peace. Every night I am the one who puts her to bed. If Daddy tries, we listen to her scream. (In case you haven't heard, I don't make my babies cry.) She bathes with me, waters the flowers with me, and walks to get the mail with me. Come nap time, you will find me running around and cleaning all the things as quickly as possible so I can sit for a minute in peace.

At nap time you also might find me at the pool. Sometimes I will sneak away with just the boys and we'll leave a sleeping Cora with her sleeping Daddy. There are things that are terrible about working 3rd shift and there are things that are wonderful. This is one of the wonderful things. She's none the wiser and I come home feeling sun-kissed and refreshed.

I think we'll go swimming now.

My favorite girl is sleeping and I could use a break.
