Recharging my mommy battery!

29 Jan

I love my kiddos. No, really. I do. Despite the fact that I’ve had three eyeshadows, one eyeliner, a new mascara and fifteen tubes of lip gloss all destroyed. I love them.

Despite the bendaroos stuck to the bottom of my slippers. I love them.

Despite the rice crispies that are all over the kitchen table and floor right now. I love them.

Despite the messy room, the pee pee in my seat in the truck yesterday (oh, not something you want to find out about after you sit down) and the pee pee in the recliner last night. I love them.

And toughest of all — despite the fact that when I got the Oreo package off the top of the fridge and found there was no oreos inside the brand new package….I love them.

Because, sometimes. Every once in a while…….

They actually play nice. Together. That’s right….no fighting….no crying….no whining!

For at least fifteen minutes. But that fifteen minutes is all I need to recharge my mommy battery. And sneak into the kitchen to eat a rice crispie treat, which suprisingly is almost as good as an oreo.

And prepare myself for the next disaster!

    They look so sweet and innocent!

    There are days that it takes until mine are sleeping for me to get those recharging moments. I look at those sweet little sleeping faces and they look like angels.

    And then I say, forget the oreos or rice krispy treats and have a glass of wine!

    Stopping in from SITS.

    Ha! I know how you feel…despite the various body fluids all over the house, despite my favorite lipstick all over her cute little face, despite the marker all over the sofa…I love them.

    And when they act like they love each other? Even better! πŸ™‚

    Stopping by from SITS Sharefest! Stop by if you get a moment!
    Have a good weekend!

    Ahhh, that’s so cute. Haha, I think every mom can relate. Oh the things we go through on a day to day basis. Good to know that we’re getting more patient each day, that’s what they’re supposed to be teaching us right ?
    What cute little girls you have πŸ™‚
    Loved the cardboard sled comment you left on SITS πŸ™‚ that’s cute!

    I can relate. My two are constantly getting into trouble but there are those few times when they sit nicely together, play together, love each other.

    I really hope that they become each other’s best friend when they are older

    Happy SITS Sharefest!
