They are just Happy

I don't know how to describe it other than, the kids just seem happier. The 1st day of school went really well. No tears at drop off. Excited chatter on the way home. They like their teachers, they made friends, and apparently the new daycare rocks.

Both Hubby and I noticed they just seem to be in a better place. No bedwetting, no tantrums at night. Everyone got up and got to school today with no issues. 

Even the dog seems happier.

Is it because we final have some space? We kept our promise that we were all moving? They got to pick out their paint colors? We have less of a commute?

Everything is still in boxes as we still have some work being done in the house but my kids seem, dare I say, relaxed. I have not heard a peep about missing anything or anyone. No fighting or whining.

I know it will be short lived but this has been a great week so far. (At least kidswise, I threw out my back and have a head cold so I could be better but that's how it goes.)

How is your week going?

  1. Ya know...I could see that after the move was over, that it could be very cathartic. Everyone is together in a new place doing new things together. There's no history in this new place from "before". This is new to everyone. And yeah, the trust gained when everyone really did all stay together is probably huge!

    I'm glad the transition thus far is going smoothly.

    (We'll just leave my week alone. LOL)
