Mama said there’d be days like this, then again, Mama or in this case GiGi, thinks these little angels do no wrong!
I often gave my parents a tough time about being an only child. Now I can see why they decided to go this route. KIDS ARE EXHAUSTING! Holy Moly! These two are tag teaming me left and right lately! Thank God they are adorable. I knew that having two babies only 18 months apart would be a handful, rewarding, but a handful. I enjoy watching Molly (age 2) and Madeline (9 1/2 months) interact and play with each other, BUT I swear they are secretly communicating to take me out. I see them scheming in the corner when they are “playing” with their princess dolls. “LET’S DRIVE MOMMY NUTS IN 5,4,3,2,……” I try so hard to keep my cool. Actually, I often have to turn my head so they don’t see me laughing at them being naughty because it is hysterical. BUT I do see myself turning into Maleficent’s dragon form in Sleeping Beauty and I have to hold my breath to keep the fire from steaming out! I don’t want to be “that Mom” you know “old yeller”, but I don’t want to be the mom who’s like “look at my babies, they are so cute, they do no wrong, la la la la, ohhh look a unicorn”!
So for now, I pray that I can “just keep swimming” and remember “you’re never fully dressed without a smile”! Your living your dream, Mama! Enjoy it because before long these beauties are going to be running out the door, not needing you anymore, and then you are really going to have something to worry about!
**Disclaimers** I am blessed and I know that so please don’t take this as complaining! Also I know I have horrible grammar so please look past that… I went to Bangor after all!
