What made YOU smile today?

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.

Cutee!


Not really smiles, but glad..

I didn't die today.

I choked on a piece of chicken this morning.  Literally.  No air going through or anything.  I managed to heimlech myself.  Still a nervous wreck.

Wow! I'm glad you didn't die! I always wondered if I'd be able to Heimlich myself if I had to.

I don't even know how I really did it, but I did, so I guess that's what's important.

Bums are so much cuter with crabs on them instead of poo!

I figure you kind of go on auto pilot.

My DS cuddling with me before school. It's been a crazy few weeks and it's about to get crazier so that precious time I have with him in the morning is what gets me through the day. :)
