Blissful and Domestic - Creating a Beautiful Life on Less: Cherish...

Blissful and Domestic

Today was a day spent running around, feeling like I was almost catching up, and then realizing I was sadly mistaken. Today was full of threatening to take video games away, urging children to focus on studies, and a last minute run to the store...where my red heads were bound and determined to drive their mama crazy. The "I'm not touching you" game is getting very old ladies....old I tell ya....oh how my brother and I tormented my own mother with that one. Sorry Mom...I'm sure we gave you a few gray hairs with that game play...Today was full of tears of frustration, woes for the future, and big sighs from failed attempts at the same old recipe (I'll have to explain this one in another post). Then I sat down to the computer and found this picture of my two red heads. It was taken two years ago, when they were 5 and 7. Oh how they are growing. This sweet picture was a reminder that days like these happen. I am not alone. Frustrated mama days are here and one day I will look back and think how time has flown by and how those chickadees are no longer those buggy munchkins who argue the whole time we are at the store. They will be grown, with families of their own, and I will miss this. I am thankful for that little reminder today....the reminder to cherish today...even if it is full of frustarted tears.

  1. Danielle, I know what you mean. My children are teenagers. They still do the "I'm not touching you" game and they get on each others nerves at times. But then it is the little things that they do, like the real laughter when they are having a good time or the times they actually talk without some silly game of I'm not touching you. That I cherish the most. As they get older I cherish more and more of the sweet moments that I see.

  2. My kids haven't done that one... yet. They have just done the "copying" and "jinx" stuff lately. Drives me insane! I love this picture of your sweet kiddos. It's those little moments when it all works out, that carry us through and make us know that it's worth it! Hugs!

  3. i luv that pix - so sweet and those frustrated momma days are ok. I have em with one (our other is almost 26), hugs and hope today goes better!
