There is opposition in all things.
If there wasn’t we wouldn’t know what joy is for we would never would have pain or sorrow to compare it with.
I so wanted to write a wonderful post about all the joys of motherhood – for there are many.
But I was too busy cleaning up after an 18-month old who threw up many, many times. All over the living room carpet and the kitchen floor. She had to have several baths. Now after a couple of popsicles she is sleeping peacefully. She was asking for candy and chocolate milk before falling asleep so I think her little bout of stomach ache is over. It may have something to do with the yucky cup of milk (think thick and curdled) she found and drank. Or maybe the raw egg we found her sucking on has something to do with it. Special Dark left the fresh chicken egg on the table instead of washing it and putting it in the fridge. Somehow Hershey poked a little hole in it and was sucking the contents out.
Yeah, makes me gag just typing it.
Well, little Hershey had no problems all night long or today. YAY!!! I had a wonderful Mother’s Day spending it with my husband and my children. We’ve laughed at the stories the kids have told. Hah, I sure haven’t changed my mothering strategies very much over these last 15 years. 🙂
We all wore our matching “Pride and Prejudice” dresses today, even the big girls who weren’t here at Easter, while the two boy wore their matching ties. I wanted to take a family picture after church but couldn’t for two big reasons. I left my camera in Utah. And the weather is very cold, rainy, and windy.
I still wanted to try writing a nice insightful motherhood post but am enjoying my time with my family too much so instead will direct you to this past Wednesday’s post on Lessons from Motherhood. There are many great links to other posts there as well. And it’s not too late to link up either there or on today’s Society Sunday which is also about motherhood.
