life is good

Maternity leave rocks. Let's just get that out of the way right now. And guess what? Today is Evan's third birthday! And Delaney is 10 weeks old today. To celebrate both these occasions, she has been sleeping good seven-hour stretches for the last few nights. Which contributes to my general level of happiness and joy.

Do you know what else contributes to my general level of happiness and joy? Starbucks iced coffee with vanilla.

Again: loving maternity leave. Where else can you eat birthday cupcakes in the morning, have vanilla iced coffee every afternoon, have frequent brunch and shopping dates with your friends and gaze goofily at your happily smiling baby... all while wearing comfy slobby clothes? This is the life, I'm telling you! Why can't I get paid for this?

How funny! I have a DeLanie, too! And that book, A Tree Grows In Brooklyn....I haven't read it in a very long time, well before I was a mom, so I might feel differently now, but I thought that book was really great.
