A gitten mo'ed everyone! 😊
So... Erev Pesach: I thought I was Mrs. Organized and had it all planned out, including a 2 hour nap slot.
The kids had other plans. End of story.
I arrived to the zeman exhausted as a.... (What kinda species is exhausted?!?). Anyway, I was like - "I'm never making Pesach at home again!". Fast forward two hours, I'm sitting at the Seder table with my beautiful family, and although I'm still tired and exhausted, its as if I'm in a daydream. As my husband pours each "kos" of mine (Super sweet grape juice😝! I can't afford the risk of getting even a teeny bit drowsy.) and my children recite the "Ma Nishtana" , I'm just overwhelmed with the most amazing feeling in the entire world😁! #ItWasAllWorthIt
