Oh these boys.


Words with Friends is the only game I have on my iPad, so when the boys get ahold of it, the only thing that entertains them is the photobooth app. These are the pictures I found today.

Also from today, Jack and I were running up the stairs and Jack was winning. He looked back and said "Is that all you've got"?

It made me laugh.

I am so grateful for Jackson and Thomas; they are awesome boys. It has just been the last little while that both of them are in a place where they need me a lot less. It has made life so much better, and it is easier for me to find joy in motherhood. A LOT easier. I know there are people who gush about motherhood and how awesome it is from the very first moment, but it has not been like that for me. But it is becoming that way, slow and steady.

I am grateful to be a mom, and ALL of the lessons I am learning. I know I am a better person because I am a mother. But I am not going to lie, it is the hardest thing I have ever done. I think that I thought being a perfect mom would be a lot easier. Imagine my surprise when it has not been easy at all. One of the lessons in life, I guess. ;)


Another week is about to begin. I hope wherever you are, it is a fantastic week.

Your boys are adorable! I am glad for you that they are becoming more and more independent. Being a mom is hard. There are a lot of bad days, thankfully there are a lot of good moments that for the most part make up for the bad. Emily, just by admitting you aren't perfect, is showing everyone, especially your boys, what an amazing mom you are.

I love it when I find these kind of gems on the ipad. Kids are so weird. :)
