Each day as a mom has its challenges. Today’s challenge: attempting to convince my two boys to take their naps while we had guys working on our roof (hammering, stomping, running carts of cement up a ladder from the courtyard, “enjoying” their loud music being blasted from just above our skylight). Mommy was a bit frazzled by this evening.
But every day has wonderful moments, too. Like this evening, just before bath, when Dan went into our room to check on Benjamin where he was watching cartoons on Dan’s phone. He found him curled up, under the blankets in our bed, and he requested company. First Dan joined him, followed by Liam and I.
Even with the inevitable elbows to the face, hair pulling and general wriggling around, it was the absolute best part of my day. It isn’t possible for the magic of 10 minutes spent cuddling with my kids to be overshadowed by anything. It is amazing and absolutely perfect. I love being a mom.
