A friend posted this on facebook and it absolutely resonated with me. I am so incredibly thank*full to be able to spend each day with my children and great*full to J for providing that opportunity. I know to some it seems dull or unchallenging (of which it is neither!) but even on the most stress*full and chaotic days I close my eyes at the end of the day and feel so incredibly blessed.
This week I am experiencing the beach with the Bugs. We are spending the time with my dad (their G), my grandmother (their “old” Mom Mom.) J is home taking care of Laila and working before his “guys vacation” in a few weeks. It’s been two days so far and it has been fantastic! Sunny sky, warm(ish) ocean, LAUGHS, ice cream, hugs and LOVE. These are the moments I cherish. Of course there has also been multiple trips to CVS (at least it wasn’t urgent care!), bathing suit rash for Bug, arguing, nonstop talking, and yes the LoveBug sass. And I wouldn’t trade it for the world because when it was time to put the Bugs to bed tonight I got hugs and kisses and snuggles and smiles…I can’t wait to spend tomorrow with them ❤
