Children Make Us Crazy

I’m convinced of it.

Why else would I…

-hide band aids and tape?
-sing the ABC’s in the shower
-pretend to eat plastic food
-scream the word “because!”
-let a child eat ice-cream for breakfast just so I have time to check my email
-call my husband “Daddio”
-take a 3 minute shower and feel clean
-ever-EVER say…’don’t wipe, let me do it’

But also, I know that being a Mom is truly the most important job I have ever had. It may be exhausting and seem thankless at times, but the rewards are insurmountable!
I’m so thankful for my kids, and especially thankful that I get to see my oldest today! Matt is flying in from NYC for the weekend.
