Because motherhood will never be a perfect science


on May 24, 2013

I love how my almost 3 year old works so hard to put her shoes on every morning and they almost always end up on the wrong feet. I rarely ever change it, because when she’s done, she stands up with all the pride of a toddler and really…who cares?

I love how my 6 year old is so much the older sister now. She scolds, she chastises and she tattles when her sister refuses to listen, and even if it’s something that I might say is not so bad, I will then get a slight lecture as to why her sister isn’t supposed to be doing whatever it is she’s doing.

I love how both my children get silly around bath time, when I’m exhausted and all I want to do is get them ready for bed. One of them says or does something silly to make the other one laugh and they both fall on the bed in a fit of giggles. I’m pretty much on the edge of irritation and past the outer limits of fatigue, but they just look at my serious face and collapse into laughter. How can I resist the smile that is fighting its way to my face?

I love how a long day and all of its frustrations can melt away as soon as I see my kids.

I love how they love unconditionally and shower me with hugs and kisses and sometimes never knowing that it was exactly the right time because maybe I was stressed or sad about something.

I love how they are able to bounce back after a ‘big’ fight and play and hug as if there was never a problem.

I love how having these 2 crazy and wonderful kids puts all other things in my life into perspective. Whenever things get too heavy, I just have to remind myself of what’s important and then I just focus and work on getting things done.

I love how being a mom provides you with continuous opportunities to learn; about yourself, your kids and your partner.

I love how every day with kids, is a new day, never boring, sometimes challenging, but always worth it.
