I love Wednesday. I think it might be my new favorite day of the week. I know, I know—it’s hump day, how could it be my favorite? Well…I don’t have to work on Wednesday. At the office, I mean. I get to stay home and play with the girls. Joy asks me every night, “What are we going to do tomorrow? Where are we going to go? Who’s going to come over? What are we going to do?” (Those exact words, in that exact order, every night, no lie.) On Tuesday night I get to hear her excited little squeal when I tell her that I don’t have to go to the office the next day. (And then Marlo squeals, too. I don’t think she really knows what she’s squealing about, but she does it with joyful abandon.) That, in and of itself, is enough to make Wednesday my favorite.
Wednesday is also Ballet day. So that’s just an added bonus for Wednesday. Joy’s joy for dance class gets thrown into the mix. And then I get to watch her in class. It’s so endearing—she is so serious and she tries so hard. She is the littlest one, but that doesn’t mean a thing to her! Watching her sweet little face when she doesn’t know I am watching is priceless. And even though it’s Joy’s dance class, Marlo also gets in on the action. All she has to hear is a little snippet of music and she’s Little Miss Twinkle Toes for the entire school’s entertainment pleasure. When she’s not dancing she runs around making friends with and charming everyone. It’s a mother’s dream.
Don’t worry, I am not going to write about how I love Monday mornings. But I am really digging Wednesday. It’s the perfect middle-of-the-week day.
