I always say how grateful I am to be able to stay home with my kids, teach them, and watch them grow- but that doesn’t mean it’s always easy and fun.
Although they are generally well-behaved, my girls will still fight over the same hair bow on Sunday morning, refuse to eat their dinner, scream and squabble over toys, or end up in time-out several times in one day. It’s enough to wear down anyone’s patience and sense of accomplishment, and that’s when it really does me good to recognize and cherish the small moments in the every day.
Time isn’t going any slower, and even though I usually feel like I couldn’t be any more tired than I am now, I know that these are some of the very best days of my life.
These days, I love…
…a little baby who never seems to stop wiggling in my belly.
…forehead kisses from my best friend.
… a classic George Strait song that speaks right to my soul and has me imagining what my babies might be like when they’re grown.
…that Kaelyn answers every single question we ask her with a resounding “NOOOO!”, followed by a giant laugh.
