|Me and newborn baby Stinky in the NICU|
I know I don't talk much about my kids and being a mommy on my blog but, seeing as it's November, I'm trying to focus on the things I'm thankful for.
Being a mommy can be a hard, thankless job sometimes. There is sass and poop and flooded kitchens and your shoes sometimes go missing and then turn up half buried in the backyard three weeks later. There have been a lot of days where my nighttime prayer has been, "God, I am thankful that today is over."

But there are also days when my babies wrap themselves around my legs and say, "MOMMY!" (or "MIMMY!" in Baby 2's case) like I'm the best present they've ever gotten. There are times when they are so grateful for some small thing I've done and I feel like supermom. And every day there are snuggles and board books and giggly bubble baths. There are kisses and tickles and belly laughs. Sometimes, in the few Big Bad Things it's hard to remember the million small, wonderful things that make motherhood worth the mess and snot and lack of sleep.
I sure do love those crazy boys of mine.
