{Thankful Today} 5 Dec: Smile

Birthdays are supposed to be happy smiley events. You know, with cake and yummy food and balloons (if you're young enough). Well, yesterday was my birthday, and it wasn't such a great day. I was down with a cold, and both the boys were also sick. Both of them took turns to keep us up at night since Junior J was bunking with us (the in-laws are using his bedroom now), so whenever one woke up crying, the other would too. It was one of those pukey, I-don't-want-to-eat, whiney kind of days. And there was no birthday dinner too, since I couldn't taste a thing thanks to my blocked nose (We learnt our lesson since last time!).

Whatever the case, ranting about how it was supposed to be a good day and all won't make it any better. Sniffles and fevers aside, we still had a nice dinner (chicken rice, cooked by the MIL) with the family, and it was nice to have helping hands with the kids since the in-laws are here. Unfortunately though, the nephew is also now down with bug too.

There weren't many smiles yesterday, so I dug into my photo archive, and found this. Guess what he's grinning about?

... there was a certain someone underneath tickling his toes with his hair! I'm always very thankful for their laughter. :)

What are you thankful for today? (A big big thank you to those who have been joining us thus far by linking up or via Instagram!)

  1. Liza: Thanks! I'm always glad when I manage to catch both of them smiling, plus looking at the camera!
