You know the days when you just want to throw in the towel and call it quits? Well, today was almost one of those days. I had piles of laundry to do, my kids would not stop fighting and then my daughter decided it was a good idea to draw on her face... twice!
Amidst all the craziness, I took a deep breath (more than once!), stayed positive, and looked for those special moments during the day, that make being a mom totally worth it. When I cling to the things that matter most, like the precious moments I have with my children, it's easier to get through the tough days.
Although there was plenty of fighting, seeing my kids sitting and reading books together just made my heart burst today, and made cleaning up my daughter's artistically painted face with WaterWipes chemical free wipes completely worth it!
I actually enjoyed our time together as I washed the marker off her face. I asked her why she colored all over her cheek and she just said "eh eh eh" and pointed to the WaterWipes on the bed.
She is only 1 1/2 years old and if she could talk I know what she would say! She would say thank you for loving her no matter what mistakes she makes, and for helping her get the marker off her sweet little cheeks. She would tell me how much she loved me and that she loves when I read and play with her. She would say thank you for being her mom!
Being a mom can be hard, but these sweet moments, the moments that matter the most for us and our kids is what makes being a parent the most rewarding job!
