Yesterday I was talking to my sister on the phone and we got on the conversation of "perfect blogs." You know the ones where everything is picture perfect? Kids always look adorable with cute clothes and hair combed, house looks perfect, blog writer is perfectly upbeat. I don't want to be a downer, but REALLY? Then I proceeded to joke about my blog and how my kids break windows, eat deodorant, drink loads of chocolate syrup, and run around shirtless. Don't get me wrong, we have our moments where the boys look cute, the house is clean (that doesn't happen too often :) ), and everything is running smoothly. But those aren't really the moments that I am going to remember, and they often seem far and few between.
I swear my boys have 200% more energy than most other kids their age. They are constantly on the go. Anyone who is around us often enough can attest to this. Sometimes I envy those moms whose kids will stay close and they don't have to chase them all over.
Today I had one of those good mom moments. I was talking to my mom on the phone and had undressed Rowan to get him ready for the bath. Yes, it's after noon and he's just having a bath. I kept his diaper on and talked to my mom for about 10 minutes. In that time, Rowan proceeded to find a marker and color on his chest, take his diaper off, find this sweet red beaded necklace, and a cookie dough poptart. He was downstairs jumping on the couch in his new attire. Yep, one of those good mom moments.
