Today I have a ton of things for a blog post going through my head and yet, I have nothing to write about. Weird how that happens. . . .
I was just thinking yesterday about how wonderful it is to be a mother. I get to set my own schedule and say yes or no to whatever I think I can/want to handle. (and usually ppl are understanding b/c you already have kids :). I don't have to get ready in the morning, it can take me as long as it needs to, or I can choose to get dolled up just to run to the grocery store. I can play outside relaxed with the boys and nothing else to worry about. I can cook, clean and organize however I want. I can go socialize pretty much at my own leisure with whomever I want. (ha) I'm trying to remember that being a mom isn't always going to be like this. It is this way b/c my boys are young. It will be different when my boys are going to school with that schedule and homework, and everything else that comes with it. So for right now, I'm thoroughly enjoying my days at home. (it helps that both my boys are on perfect schedules right now, and most days doing what I require of them)
Right now - I love my days.
Now don't get me wrong, I have my moments or even days that I just want to get out of here. That I've heard enough whining to cover the ocean, or that I've seen one to many tantrums from my 2 yr old, or one too many cat naps of my 7 month old. But overall, who could ask for a better life. Spending each and every day with my two most precious blessings.
On another note: I watched a little girl today and one one wednesday - boy are they different. So timid walking around outside while my 2 yr old is jumping off of everything possible and running as fast as he can to his destination. So quiet and peaceful. My boy is well behaved, but he is a boy! And what can I say. . . except that he is a boy!!!! There are many boys surrounding me and my extended family - so I'm not used to girls. Soon I'll be watching 5 boys 3 and under once a week!!!! That will be a lot different I think.
And side note: I really think my boys are so so cute!!!!!!! Every mom is allowed to say that about her own kids no matter what.
