My cup of tea this morning is piping hot. I’m nearly to impatient to let it cool. I feel like I have 3 minutes to chug it down before the kids need me. It seems that cabin fever is at an all time high. Gone are the days of playing puzzles, coloring and blocks for hours on the ground. They are so over every idea mom has to keep busy, and so is mom. Tomorrow it is supposed to be nearly 50* – so this family is definitely going to switch the beat and find something (anything) to do outside of the house!
Do you have anything on your list of things you want to do with your family right when the weather gets nice? My list seems to be growing with each snow pounding we get here. These boys are sure to have a fun filled summer!
On a more down to earth note, I have had a few mommy meltdowns this week. Just feeling overwhelmed with all that we left behind, and not being sure about where well be. And then toss in some extreme brotherly bickering and long lists of to do’s, I have had to make attempts to unwind lately. Even if it is 5 minutes sifting through a cookbook.
As much as they have been testing everyone’s patience on a day-to-day basis, I think everyone here deep down is loving the extra toddler TLC swirling around these rooms!
They bring quiet a zest of life into the hours of each day.
At the end of the day, when awaiting the minutes until bedtime feels like hours, I love when suddenly my wild boys turn into cuddly, bedtime story listeners. It is a constant reminder lately, that they too are going through all of these changes, and we need to be just as patient with them as well. No matter how crazy our days have been getting around here lately, I would prefer no other little ones by my side. I made these little boogers, I have shaped them into who they are. My corkiness is written all over their smirky little faces. They are exactly my cup of tea.
