It was Saturday which means there's a good chance Heath is home. I was doing the dishes and Heath and the kids went outside. I was watching them as they were playing football. Dad and Hannah vs. Noah and Asher. Heath knelt down to talk about a play with Hannah. The ball was in play and Heath acted like he had the ball but it was really up Hannah's dress (yes, that girl can do anything in a dress). The boys caught on pretty quickly and after they touched her hips there was a good amount of laughter. More plays, more laughter! I was watching what I thought would be great footage for a commercial about family and spending time together. I thought I must be the luckiest girl in the whole wide world and couldn't help but smile. That dad that adored those kids and those kids that adored him right back.
A little later they came into the kitchen. It was time for a picnic on the front lawn. Everyone gathered what they thought might be good for a picnic. A few hot dogs, granola bars, popcorn, and crackers. I was invited too.
Later, I watched a movie called Mom's Night Out. It seemed like the best movie EVER! I could relate to the mom from the very beginning. I laughed out loud and I cried real quiet. Who knew that a tatooed biker dude named Bones could be so profound. It helped me feel a little normal with all the crazy emotions I've been feeling lately. Right before the movie was over Asher came in crying from scratching his back on the bricks outside and Hannah was screaming cause she peed on the bathroom floor. Although I didn't see the end of the movie, I didn't really feel like I needed to. I was living it and for some reason it made me feel like I could handle it all right then.
That was the good part of the day.
