The small and simple pleasure of motherhood.

Yesterday was a rough day with 3 little ones.  I was one tired mom with an independent 2 year old who wouldn’t cooperate all day and a 5 year old and 8 year old who fought all afternoon.  I had a few moments throughout the day where I wished I was not a “stay at home mom”.  I’m sure you can all relate to those types of days where you wonder why you even have kids.  So this morning I was reminded why I love my little ones so much.  As I dropped my 8 year old son off at school this morning I had the smallest glimpse of how truly sweet he is.  He got out of the van and told me that there was a worm on the sidewalk and it looked like it was about to be dried up.  I didn’t think anything of it, ’cause it was just a worm.  After he said goodbye, he closed the van door, picked up the worm and set it gently in the grass, then ran off into the school.  These little experiences make it all worth it and also make me feel like I’m doing something right :)

    You have quite a son! Most little boys would be more likely to stomp on it than save it. Either that or they would pull out a magnifying glass and have a worm fry. Sweet boy!

  • I must have done something wrong when I posted because I somehow posted without finishing and without my editing. Anyway, I wanted to add that, these little experiences make it all worth it and also make me feel like I’m doing something right 🙂

    I made the change for you. Do you not see an option to edit your posts? I am still figuring all these settings out so there may be something I need to change so that you can.

  • Thanks. I’ve never used wordpress, so I’m not sure what I’m doing. There’s an edit button, but it only takes me to “Bulk Edit Posts”. Not sure what that is.
