We have this little boy who loves to talk, I have no idea where he gets that from. He will drive for hours on end talking about everything he sees as we go on our way. But sometimes, he is just plain exhausted and can't make it 2 minutes down the road.

Today is that day. After a busy busy morning being a very cute salesman at the garage sale and playing at the park, he just could not last a moment longer.

Monster Good Time

Yesterday was a busy day. We had so much fun. Corbin was invited to take part of a toy council for creative kidstuff. We love that place. They have amazing toys, but are slightly expensive.

Corbin was asked to try out lots of different new toys over the evening. It was a bit of a challenge, he really wanted to play with every other toy except the ones he was asked to play with. Oh well, I guess that's what it's like when you are three. Thankfully, almost every other child was the same way.

I was able to get a few pictures of him playing with his favorite thing. It was so fun!

We had a roaring good time! And can hardly wait to do it again.

Sweeter Still

I have these three little boys. They love to snuggle. I love to snuggle them. Unless it's 80+ degrees like it has been the last two days.

Almost every morning I wake up to a little boy crawling into my bed. He sandwiches himself in between Casey and I. He flips and flops and almost never goes back to sleep. He talks and tickles and plays with cars in my hair. He is going a mile a minute from the moment he stumbles out of bed and down then hall. Moments like these can be sweet or tiring, depending on your mood and outlook. I am trying to see them as sweet, especially since they are fleeting moments.

So tonight, as I sit with my little boy watching Fireman Sam. He leans over, places his head on my shoulder, wraps his arms around my arm and says "I love you, honey." To which I reply "I love you too", only to be followed by his immediate response of "I love you too, honey."

All this is followed by a snotty nose being wiped down my arm.

These are the moments that make up a life of a mom. They make you forget or lessen the memory of the hard parts of your day, the screaming and crying and temper tantrum throwing, not to mention what attitudes the kids may have thrown in the mix. And now, we sleep because tomorrow we do it all over again.

Every day brings new joy amongst a sea of challenges. But this life of mine continues to be sweeter still.
