I have another post about two sentences from being ready to publish but I just saw this and it totally made me laugh. So I thought I would share it first just in case any of you also had a tough day seeing the kids off to school again and being faced with an empty house, no distractions and a head full of stuff you would rather not think about...
Yes they suck you dry, take every ounce of patience and give you wrinkles and grey hair but boys are wonderful. I had a sort of awful day and my therapy was starting a big pot of chicken soup simmering just after drop off this morning. I made my boys chicken noodle soup, big cheddar biscuits then a batch of blueberry, orange and white chocolate scones for snacks tomorrow at school. Food made from scratch is cheap and the chopping and mixing and measuring clears my mind. Seeing them slurp and nosh and smile is one of my greatest joys as a Momma. I love feeding people. I love my boys...I love playing every sport possible with them, doing legos, making creature habitats, making messes, singing, listening, exploring. I love everything but the fighting and arguing and the pee aim issues in the bathroom.
Every night I send out a wish for them to be happy, whatever that looks like, and as hilarious as this commercial is it was a little wake up call on how fast they have grown and how little time I actually have being a Momma to people smaller than me as two are already making me look like a shrimp.
Okay, now I am sad and I have to watch it again before I get to making lunches for the man clan tomorrow.
love ya friends, enjoy this Old Spice diddy,
there are more too...
