i’ve been feeling like a sucky mom. today it hit me as we were getting ready for school. one daughter said, “MOM! i don’t have any jeans to wear.” they were in the wash…hadn’t made it to the dryer yet. yes, she washed them and forgot to put them in the dryer yesterday. it’s my job, as a mom, to train and remind. but sometimes i get tired of doing it and check out. i checked out this weekend…and this morning paid the price with my other daughter whining at every chance she got. it goes like this…she whines, i get more and more impatient and then realize i’ve been checked out and she is just wanting some attention and snuggles. when will i learn? so today when they come home from school…our cubbards won’t look like old mother hubbard and they will walk into the house smelling some baked yummy goodness. it always makes them happy. thank goodness we can change and they give us so many chances. tonight i will be engaged and we will snuggle.
