Lunch Break With Alohilani..9:30 AM
I had a lot of meetings lined up in the early morning that I had finished with early so I was able to make extra time to spend with her. One of the few perks of my "day job" is that although I have bosses, I pretty much run my own schedule and can make concessions and changes as needed during the work day. So I went home and met Alohi who was waiting ever so patiently for me outside the front door with her mommy. As I walked her into the house, I asked this precious 2 1/2 year old girl what she wanted to eat or do and she said, "bath time"! So naturally, I obliged. This girl loves bath time, like loves it. She chose to be bathed in my large kitchen sink because she's still a petite little and likes to be able to look out and see everything.
Bubbles were blown, water was splashed and she had a great time. It's funny how even when you're having a bad day, a child can completely turn that day around. She lit my world with sunshine that I dearly needed as I was stuck in a pensive sort of grumpy haze.
I'm so thankful to have had that hour or so with my darling Aloha yesterday. My darling little protege.
I hope you all are having a good week and are able to spend time with the ones you love most.
