Finish the Sentence FridayThis week’s sentence is ”The best part of my day is…

clockcould it be when I’m driving in my car listing to my books on tape…as I have said before I rather listen to books than music…yes I’m a geek and I love it. I so love getting lost in a story, feeling as if I am one of the characters, part of their world…when I ends it’s a tragedy…until the next story. The BEST pat is actually enjoying community to work…it’s over before you realize it.


could it be picking up Dino from daycare…the look on his face as he runs to me…nothing better than that. “MOMMY!” fills my ears as he runs to me and jumps into my arms. Having my son in my arms after a long day is a blessing each time.


could it be when Dino wakes up in the morning…the smile and hug for his mommy is better than any amount of money on earth. A Dino hug and kiss is just what I need to start the day.


could it be when I finally get Dino to sleep, Balboa out for the last time at night, made all the lunches, got the clothes ready for the next day, and washed my hair…I can then FINALLY settle into my bed and drift off to sleep.


Though I would have to say the best NEW part of my day is when I get home and have time to walk before picking up Dino. That time for myself, to unwind and exercise is golden. I never thought I had time in the morning, and I don’t…but the afternoon works perfectly. I am hoping this exercise will give me afternoon energy, help me sleep better at night, get in shape, and feel better.

What’s the best part of your day?Β Β 



  1. I love all of your best parts! I’m so glad to hear you have figured out a way to carve out a little walking time for yourself. That is an awesome way to recharge and exercise. Good for you!! The best part of my day? Like you I could say so many things from my first cup of coffee in the morning to the goodnight hugs I get from my kids (yes, even the 13 year old!) I also love cuddling up with my dog and reading but (unfortunately) that’s not every day. πŸ™‚ –Lisa

  2. Great list and sometimes it is that time alone that helps totally recharge us. As much as I love pre-school pickup, I wouldn’t be able to enjoy it as much if I didn’t get over 2 hours over alone time to get a ton of stuff done and accomplished. So that time we get for just us is so very essential and important. Truly couldn’t agree more! Thanks as always for linking up with us πŸ™‚

  3. Your best parts of each day are awesome parts. I’m a little jealous of the walking and need to find some time to do the same for myself. And I love the look on my son’s face when he sees me after school. Priceless!

  4. All of those are definitely moments to look forward to each day. I would love to have a little time to walk by myself, even if for a few minutes!

  5. Oh, those are all so fantastic! I love the alone time in the car, and the walking by yourself before you pick up your kiddo…. and the morning hug… Funny how many moms have mentioned that moment when we pick our kids up! Great post.

  6. Fantastic!

    The best part of my day is when I get the kids into bed and sleep – finally. I feel like I can finally exhale.

    I hope your weekend has started out healthy! have fun!

  7. I remember when my kids were little–I think one of my favorite parts of the day was when I peeked in on them while they were sleeping–such angelic faces! Now that I am older, I cherish the quiet in the house during the day so that I can write in peace.

  8. I do cherish quiet, I love taking pictures of them with their sports, but I think one of my favorite parts of the day is when a cat snuggles up and purrs. Doesn’t that sound funny? It’s so relaxing to me!

  9. I used to love listening to books on tape when I drove to work! πŸ™‚

    Best part of the day now…. I think it differs. Today it was the time my son and I spent at the car shop. We colored together and laughed and just had fun.

Would love to read your thoughts
