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!
