Why Is It?

Why is it that they want the one toy you can't find and the only thing that will console them is the toy in the other one's hand? Which will only make that one cry!!!

Why is it when you say "We don't say butt" they respond with "BUT why?"

Why is it that they always seem to have that dirty diaper right before your about to be really late?

Why is it when you work so hard at getting them so clean and so cute they get so dirty and so uncute with almost no effort at all?

Why is it that you count the minutes until bedtime and then the moment they fall asleep you wish they were awake?

Why is it that when they complain about dinner and you threaten to make oatmeal for the next week they say "YAY"?

Why is it that the moment you get on the phone there is a bloody crisis?

Why is it when you feel like a hideously ugly mess they say "you so pretty mommy"?

Why is it in all of the 24 hours of the day the only time you don't have to remind them to brush their teeth is AFTER bedtime?


Why is it you plan all year long for your one freakin' get away and the very instant you get on the road your heart throbs with a rhythm of missing them that doesn't stop until you are home again with them in your arms!

Why is it I'm out of milk AGAIN and I hate milk?!?!


Parenthood the toughest job you'll ever love!!

You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You —Isaiah 26:3
"Perfect peace"...hmmmm, doesn't that sound delicious?

Are you sure you don't have a video camera in my house :)??? It is amazing how alike all of our lives are, yet feel so alone at times. I think my kids are unloading the spice drawer...better go! Hugs!

So funny! And I feel like I am able to relate on a small scale. How I look forward to those school breaks when I can have some "me" time, but oh how I ache for these kids when they are gone!
Happy Valentine's Day to you guys!
