one of "those days"

I must admit I had one of "those days", where I thought the world was out to get me.
Let's see what happened...
Justin is STILL teething
Jacob missed the toilet seat and before I could clean "it", Justin crawled in "it"
Jacob was NOT listening to me at all
Justin figured out how to climb on EVERY piece of furniture in our house
I forgot to thaw out the chicken for dinner
and the list goes on...
THEN I stopped for a minute, took a deep breathe and realized how TRULY BLESSED I am. These boys are our life, we love them more than we can put into words. I love the brotherly bond they are beginning to share(even when they are fighting with one another!)
and no matter what happens in life,
we ALL have each other, isn't that what family is all about?
There is SO much to be thankful for and I think this Momma
needs to stop and take it all in! That means even when things are going crazy all around me!!
Today we're off to swim at my mom's house with family, Yay!!
Have a great weekend :)

Hope you have a great day!

You are so right - life with little cuties can feel frustrating which makes the day feel so long. But trust me - these days and years pass so quickly.

My baby is 18 now, and I keep wondering how this happened. I feel like I'M 18!

Yes, those kind of days can really get to us, but stopping to breathe and reflect is always a good thing to do. I hope that today will be a much better day. Remember that the crawling into pee will be a very funny story in the future! Ha! Thank you for your comment today about teaching! Have a great weekend my friend!

Hope you had fun swimming! I know exactly what you are saying though! My boys were doing some pretty crazy things today and I felt a little overwhelmed, but have to just laugh sometimes when I think about what they are doing. Hey, they are always giving us something to blog about, right? he he :)

I so feel you on "those days"! But you are right, it is important to stop and look around and remind yourself of what is really important, that really will help you get through the rest of the day! I hope tomorrow is easier for you! Did you have any luck with those teething tablets?
