You know, we all have our struggles as a mama. Some mamas deal with one thing while another mama may never deal with that. She faces a different challenge… on a daily basis. Let me tell you – Just because another mom isn’t going through what you are or hasn’t ever gone through what you are facing, doesn’t mean her life as a mom is ‘Perfect‘. For some reason (well, I know the reason) I feel a need to tell you that: My life at 1046 isn’t perfect.
My children aren’t perfect & I yell at least 2 (ok, add a few zeros) times a day.
My boys fight and whine and are mean to each other and throw tantrums just like yours.
They are destructive as destructive can be – they are BOYS (& I love it)!
They LOVE to destroy things and watch toys fall apart.
They love to stack things tall just so they can destruct it.
They will throw anything just to see the mess they made.
They “accidentally” drop 47 goldfish on the floor so they can “accidentally” step on them.
They climb on anything their PiggyToes can touch & jump off of it like they are super heros.
My boys don’t sit at the table & eat. They run around like a pair of wild monkeys and when they pass by my chair, I hold out my fork so they can chomp on it then continue running.
Roman thinks he’s potty trained and insists on stripping down naked when Rocco needs to go to the bathroom. I promise you- Rocco will teach Roman how to pee on the potty in no time, but in the mean time- I’m always wiping pee from our bathroom floor.
* I mean, its just NOT perfect. Need MORE? *
Today, they pulled the entire strand of dental floss out of the plastic thing that holds it. They ran around the house with a 10 foot piece of dental floss until it got wrapped around a door knob (don’t ask me how) and they both fell bonking their heads on the hardwood floor.
While I was in the shower, they squirted toothpaste and soap all over their bathroom counter-top and finger painted a fun design.
While getting dressed, they thought Roman’s crib would be a better holding place for 300 books rather than their book cases.
I handed each of the monkeys a banana (for a morning snack)… I picked up the phone to call my mom and during the 3 minutes we chatted, I came back to this:
SO feel better – 1046 is far from perfect. Just because I don’t choose to share all the ‘BAD’ doesn’t mean we’re “PERFECT”. I’d just rather focus on the good than always write, think and view the BAD.
And this is just a FEW hours of my life with a 2 AND 3 year old.
How’s your day going? I’m thankful its nap time.
