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.
"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.
