Yep, that was me...driving around town last week with a snake in my purse, willingly I might add! The lengths I go to for my kids - I really hope they appreciate my motherly dedication!

There are days where I wish I could completely envelop these kids! I just want to wrap my arms around both of them and hold them as tightly as I can!

UGH!! My girl had another terrible fall from her bike today & BUSTED up her mouth good! One tooth is precariously hanging in there, but its fate looks pretty sealed...needless to say she had a rough day! As a matter of fact, it took it's toll on all of us - honestly, I just don't handle blood very well!! However, I'm quick to realize that we are so blessed with our health that a lost tooth is minor in comparison to the potential...

Tonight as I was putting her to bed I lingered a little longer than normal, tickling her back and staying with her until she fell asleep. Right before she dozed off she murmured this..."I think I have the greatest Mommy of all..." I'm not sure if my heart could have been any fuller! This must be what they mean when they say it's all worth it!

"Skyper thinks he is a 'super-cat' and that he can fly. Hmph...he can't...I try to help him...I hold him up and then drop him...and he can't fly!"

***for the life of us...we can't figure out why he keeps scratching her...

Eye Exam

Although it's a given that I love my children with all of my heart, all of the time...there are times when they do or say something that makes me fall in love with them all over again! Today was one of those days, as soon as I saw this, my heart dove a little deeper!

My boy was scheduled for an eye appointment, nothing serious, just an eye appointment. But, boy was he nervous - so nervous that he and his sister studied for the eye exam - complete with an eye chart and all - here they are with his sister administering the test. Although he passed, she concluded that he cheated since he was the one who developed the eye chart...she has a good point!
