All In A Day's Work

Because there are LOTS of people who have much more reason to complain than I do....I am not going to tell you why I cannot wait for this day to be over..... I am not going to tell you that after just sweeping and washing my floors, I forgot to put the stopper in Parker's sippy cup and now have milk from one end of my house to the other....or that Jack left the bathroom door open and there are now blocks and an Elmo floating in my toilet...or that I left the carton of eggs too close to the edge of the counter and now have 11 scrambled eggs on my kitchen floor thanks to Parker...or that Parker shoved a blueberry in his nose that luckily Mama was able to haul out with tweezers or that Parker wanted to help Mama change Reece's diaper but decided he wanted to use his hands to wash Reece's bum and not a wipe....AND that poop DOES look a whole lot like chocolate (I'll let you write the ending to that one....YUCK). I also won't tell you that while trying to marinate pork chops and hold a cranky "I need my Mama to hold me all day and I will scream if she puts me down" Parker a RAW pork chop magically appeared in his mouth. I DEFINITELY will not tell you that because Parker was actually being quiet out of my arms and playing with the phone, I let him.....until I heard a voice on the phone and quickly grabbed it only to hear "Hello, is anybody there? This is 911 emergency...."
So yeah, this is my day thus far, and it is just 3 in the afternoon. The crazy thing is...someday I am going to miss this. 2 years from September Parker will be starting the pre-primary program. My last baby will be in school. These "baby" moments will be gone. So I am (trying...very hard) to enjoy (and laugh at!) these moments, and cherish the tender moments when they just crawl on your lap and snuggle so close you can smell their sweet smelling baby smell...because that doesn't last long either!
...and I wouldn't change a thing (MOST days ;)
