It’s One of THOSE Days…

no really! It’s one of THOSE days.  Not in a bad way.  Not in a ‘counting the hours until naptime’ kind of day.   it’s one of those ‘i am SO honored to have this mothering gig, and smart enough to realize it today’ kind of day.

Ethan-8yr just gave me a hug and smiled and said, “Mmmm.  You smell just like syrup.  In a good way!” I hate syrup, and the stickiness it creates, which is why he tacked on the disclaimer.   And he has been creating high quality paper airplanes for his little brothers ever since the Syrup Hug.

Seth-2yr is still looking down my shirt and asking if i have a ‘beebee’ [baby] in there. This query usually leads me to question all sorts of things, including what i last ate and if I’m retaining water, but not today. When I told him that no, there was not a beebee in there, Seth-2yr pointed to himself. He smiled with all his dimples, and said, “Me. Me a beebee. You a momMAY, and me a beebee.” Then he hugged me, and inhaled deeply, just as he’d seen Ethan-8yr do.

I have no idea why I smell like pancake syrup. In a good way. Or any way at all.

Three little boys are playing with paper airplanes, and I’m just happy to be here with them. It’s one of THOSE days.

I had one of those days yesterday when we went to pick up a rental car and it was raining. Hubby wanted me to sit in our car as he got everything arranged, ran out into the rain and drove the car around for me. I felt so honored…still do.

Your boys are a hoot! Blessings friend.
