Thursday - 9.27.12Today I would like to reflect on a moment of thoughtfulness because I think we hear enough about all the jerks in the world. Today's thoughtful act was preformed by the Mad Hatter aka my hubby. As many of you know I'm pregnant with my third child, (my hubby's first) so I'm no newbie to pregnancy cravings and I try not to be too incredibly demanding about them when I have them.
A few days ago we were laying in bed watching TV, it was about 11:30 pm and I had remember a good friend of my mom's had advised me to try mint chip ice cream for the horrible nausea I have been experiencing at night. So I roll over to him with big eyes and fluttery eye lashes, he looks at me with that how much is this going to cost me look on his face and says "What do you want?" I softly reply "Mint chip ice cream." He looks at the clock and looks back at me grumbling "right now?" Before I reply I decided I don't need it right now, even though it would be nice, so I say "I guess not, but I heard it will help." He promises "I'll get you some for tomorrow night, ok?" I shrug my shoulders and figure he will forget.
The next night were laying in bed again, this time it's about 10:00 pm and I roll over, same big eyes and fluttering eye lashes, I say "Mint chip ice cream would be amazing right now." He replies "Oh good because I got you some! I'll go get you a bowl." I'm so mean, I reply with a surprisingly "You remembered?" He comes back in the room with a bowl of mint chip and says "Of course I remembered, I can't have mama going without her mint chip."
Sometimes the smallest things like remembering to do something someone asked you to do can really brighten someones day or night. So let all take this as a lesson to try to keep our promises.
