I love being a mom, that is the truth! But to be totally honest, it is hard to be a mom. It can be exhausting and frustrating and at times bring me to tears. It is also one of the most rewarding things in the world. As hard as it is to be a mom at times I wouldn't trade it for anything, really ANYTHING.
I had one of those great moments tonight. Usually on Thursdays I am so ready for bedtime and usually because the Smart One goes to scouts so I do bedtime solo. The Silly One wanted to play with Legos so while I was doing dinner he was working on building a race car. He got Legos for Christmas and has been loving them and is even getting pretty good at building things and modifying to make them his own. We ate dinner as a family and the Smart One was off to scouts and I cleaned up. Once the dishwasher was loaded I helped finish the race car. I got totally sucked in, we ended up making two more cars and the boys and I had a race. A race in which started simple but then the rules changed mid-race and all of a sudden the cars could fly. :) It probably sounds silly but while we were playing I had the thought how wonderful it is to be a mother of boys. I am grateful for these two crazy boys!
On a side note, I have been meaning to post the sweet flower my Silly One gave me on Mother's Day.
The middle says, "I Love My Mom because. . ."
Each petal has his answer to a question:
My favorite thing to do with my Mom: Play games
My Mom is good at: making stuff and playing basketball
My Mom is as beautiful as: a flower
My Mom teaches me: to tie my shoes
My Mom loves me because: she makes yummy stuff
My Mom makes the best: Chocolate stuff
Apparently I make a lot of good food. :) This made my day. See didn't I tell you being a Mom was the best? So worth it.
