Here's a quote from the book I'm reading. I've mentioned it before- it's called "A Joyful Mother of Children." It's a good one. Here's something I read last night in a chapter about reminding yourself that your having fun being a mom-- despite the craziness that raising children brings.
"We mothers do have fun watching these little ones learn and grow. Sometimes we're so close that we can't see it, so we have to step back a little and focus-- and remind ourselves about how much fun we're having!"
Amen to that. I love the moments that seem to stand still. When I can stop and just giggle at what Hendrix just said. Or notice how much Quinn is actually comprehending about the world around her. Or enjoy the twinkle in Veda's eyes and she's discovering everything. I sure love my kids. It's an exhausting job, but they make me so happy.
Ha... the kids 'cleaning' the floor with colanders on their heads.
