Moments of sickness
Discovering something new
Then we have moments of absolute devastation
In all these moments I don't want to take for granted what has been given to me. Even though some of the moments in our house are frustrating, tiring, and if I'm being honest, down right annoying to me.
I could have gone without the drama that followed Cinderella losing her head. Having four kids I have had my share of dealing with fevers, rashes, colds, puke, and every other body function that comes with being sick. Sometimes the mess that follows a day of playing dress up is overwhelming to all of us to clean up. There are days when I'd rather feed Nathan than let him try things on his own because I know it won't be quite as messy. I know I don't always appreciate the moments when we are in the midst of them but I am so very thankful that we have had them.
