I think being a parent is challenging in more ways than one. Some days feel like never ending chores with no down time in sight. With all of the stuff I have to do, that NEEDS to get done, I sometimes forget to stop and be thankful for the little things that make me smile. The little things that make being a mother so worthwhile. So today I was a bit frustrated. My son was screaming for a banana, which I did not have. He then wanted some tuna fish...another item I did not have. Tears were flowing. I was making egg salad for DD and DS instead. My DD came into the kitchen asking for an apple. Oh. One more thing I didn't have. I told her, "We don't have any apples. I have oranges and grapes, would you like one of those?" My back was turned to her as she's yelling about an apple. It was only noon and I could feel myself getting frustrated. She slammed the fridge door, still talking about an apple...and when I turned around to her, this is what I saw. Sitting on the floor, devouring a tomato. She had found an "apple". And I think I found my sanity again.
What made you smile today?
