It's a kinda crazy roller coaster. This motherhood thing. One minute you're way in over your head and the next you're just laughing inside and smiling from ear to ear.

this morning, as i am trying to get everyone out the door, my ten year old informs me his reading assignment is not completed!
i'm trying to work really, really hard on not yelling but talking sternly. so i do just that. talk as sternly as possible, at times talking through my teeth....and in the middle of it all, he pulls out a folded cut up paper from his pocket and hands it out to me.

'snowflake?' he says.

perplexed i look at him and say: 'what??'

'snowflake. you want a snowflake?'

his little peace offering. how could i not. wow. these kids are something else and how can i not let them have my entire heart?

may your day be filled with snowflakes friends. have a beautiful weekend!

As hard as it is to have a toddler, I'm not gonna lie...I am not looking forward to the school age kids who inform me last minute about the bake sale/homework assignment/field trip, etc! lol! But how sweet was his peace offering?? :)

Aww! That is so sweet. I am SO with you on the up and down thing. I feel like this past week and a half has been my hardest time EVER with Jax. I don't know if it's just because he's figuring out what he wants more or if I am just super grumpy or what...but it's hard! I love how you write about the "real" mom stuff. I love your blog.
