I have the best kids on the planet, I am pretty certain of that. While the little one screams a lot, I don't know what I would do without her, or how about that middle child who LOVES to talk and talk and talk, or my boy who is all boy, and yet so sweet and caring and wants to always make everyone around him happy and find joy as he does. They are all so very smart and FUNNY. I think they get the funny from me. See? Another reminder that life is good. I am funny sometimes.
These people have been trying to help me stop saying bad words. They have me on a bad habit 'sticker chart'. I have been trying for 2 months, I only have one sticker which means I only went ONE day without saying a bad word. I struggle. However, I discovered that most of the bad words happen around bedtime. The jury is still out as to why on Earth the bad words start exploding at that time of day. (-Insert sarcastic grin.-)
These are the people getting me through, making me crazy, helping me to reach to be better.
These are my Friday afternoon thoughts.
My last thought? I hope you have a beautiful weekend. Truly.
Soak in some sunshine, kiss on the ones you love, hug on them just a little bit more, just a little longer. Serve someone. Eat something delicious, take a walk, forgive the dog when he poops on your floor or eats your new Merida doll. Run through a sprinkler, blow on a dandelion without the fear of spreading the seeds all over your lawn. Grab some sidewalk chalk. Spend too much money on a new charger for the Power Wheels and go nuts. I plan on doing it all.
I hope you do it too.
