Thankful Thursday (3-15)

Boy am I glad I make to-do lists. I had no idea it was Thursday. I’m not sure what day I thought it was…but Thursday was NOT it. Ever have a week like that? I’m pretty sure just like I don’t understand time and ages, I don’t understand days of the week. Go ahead, judge me right now. 😉

This week…

I’m thankful for Brooklyn’s problem-solving skills (ex…when I told her I would get her more pretzels in a minute, she found her stool & got them herself. SOS).
