So, today was Peggy's last day in the firm.  She is getting her own place in Denver.  I've been trying to hold my shit together to get ready for this day, but I have to say, I've been feeling a bit sad about it. 

It was only a little over a month ago that I lost Bob--aka my confidante and friend in the office--when he passed away.  Peggy was my other close friend in the office.  I would talk to these two all day long.  Our desks are talking distance apart.  Sigh.  It's been pretty sad and I will miss her so much.

But I am very happy for her.  She is moving on and up and she is going to do great.  So instead of being bummed out all day, I decided to wear Peggy's favorite top of mine.  

Words cannot express how much I love this tunic.  I spotted it at Ross a few years back.  It is comfy and just the right mix of sparkle and boho.  Typically, however, I pair it with something tighter on bottom or shorter (like here).  This was a bit too bohemian for me.  But Peggy was a fan.  So it was a win.  ;-)

OMGosh.  I am mourning something else tonight.  Today I went to pick up my daughter at day care after she was at her dad's this weekend.   I walked in the school, looked around and could not find her.  "She's right over there," says her teacher. 

I turn around.  "Brielle!  OH.  MY.  GOD.  YOUR HAIR!!!"  My daughter left with hair down to her butt and came back to hair at the shoulders.  It is the most adorable thing I have ever seen.  She looks so grown up.  I love it!  But . . .

It was definitely a shock.  And--I missed my baby's first major hair cut.  But, when you are a two parent household, you are bound to miss some firsts.  You just have to accept that and just accept what time you do get. 

Which is just what I did.  And the absolute best part of my day was when Brielle went out front to talk to Patrick and came inside with a glass full of dandelions.  Just for me.  Just because.  

Aaaaaand do you know what awesome hobby that Conner has become obsessed with?  Cup stacking.  This is a serious sport in the first grade. I have looked everywhere for the actual cup stack game, to no avail.  So Conner has been substituting some Solo cups in the meantime. 

But today, he got a wonderful surprise waiting for him.  A package had come for him.  From Patrick.  It was the real cup stack game.  He got the whole routine down to 25 seconds.  That's right.  

So the moral of the story for today's Monday is this: my kids make every bad day a better one.
