Proud Mommy Moments: For My Bad Day

Proud Mommy Moment time!   Did your kids do something awesome?  Tell us about it- feel free to brag!  Kids do something totally horrible and embarrassing-- tell us about it, we will laugh with you.  Proud Mommy Moments is a weekly meme hosted by Kmama and myself to tell about those little moments in life both good and bad.

Every Thursday!

Just grab the button and join in!  And definitely visit my co-host Kmama.

Sometimes being a mom is hard, sometimes it is even boring, but there are those little moments that make it all so worth it.

Ryder was laying on the floor kicking and screaming- the lack of nap totally showing through.  I had put him down for a nap he just never went to sleep.  I hate the transition stages.

My patience was wearing thinner and thinner, Lucas and Alex decided to add to the chaos by picking on each other.  I felt like a ticking time bomb ready to explode.  I did what I so often do when I feel like I may snap- I retreat.  Retreat into my head, into a book, into a game on my iPad-- anything to shut it out and stop me from doing something I will later regret.

I was sitting on the couch- retreated into my iPad.
"Mom how do you spell universe?" Lucas asked from the other room.

I spelled it for him then returned to my game.
"Here mom, I made this for you since you were having a bad day." Lucas said handing me a card.
Card Says:
  "I love you with all my heart.  Reasons why I love you.
   1- I love you because you feed me
   2- you're always there for me
   3- you help me do what is right
   4- you love me back
   5- you do nice things for me
   6- you're very kind
You are the best mom in the universe.
 I love you"

Suddenly Ryder's screaming, the kids fighting and all the little mundane things didn't seem so bad anymore, in fact they were all totally worth it.

I hope my son always has such a heart of gold.
