post bathtime sweetness/grey day






Sometimes these rowdy boys of mine are really really sweet. Like yesterday, when a receptionist at the doctors office made me cry, Benson sat on my lap and wiped my tears and told me I was a good mommy. Banks... well he's entered the "i'm going to do whatever I want" stage and although it is very tiring in public places, he is snuggly and sweet and hilarious at home.

I have to remind myself of all of this today, as the lady in the doctor's office somehow got into my soul and stole my sunshine. As doctor seuss says, grey day, everything is grey. I watch, but nothing moves today. So, we are working on finding my sparkle and I think we might be close to putting back where it belongs, and soon my day will be happy pink.

Now if only I was close to figuring out what we are going to eat for dinner....

i wish we could live by each other! i can so relate on so many levels and ambrose and banks must be in the very same stage and i feel like i complain about him a lot but really he has the sweetest moments ever too. just like you said.

and two days ago i cried really hard in my bedroom over a couple different things all at once and ambrose came over and kissed my cheeks and just sat on my lap hugging me for a good 5-7minutes.... these boys are so energetic but so so precious. i think you described it all perfectly!

Aw. I'm so sorry, Carrie. You are an incredible mother, a supportive wife, a talented artist, and a beautiful soul. I love you.

I love it!! Kids can be so tiring - but yet the sweetest thing. I feel the exact same way right now, especially with Ezra at his age. I hate when people make you feel bad - it makes me just want to be so mean back. I love your pictures you took.

it's always those DANG NURSES!!!! My doctor is always positive, even when I wasn't gaining enough weight but the nurse was soo eeeevil. I think they feel like they get so little input that they have to throw it in no matter good or bad whenever they can.
