I don't know about you other moms out there, but I have my hands full with these 2 kids of mine!
This week has been especially difficult, but Grayden and Sadler have always kept me very busy and always on my toes.
Sadler is so super busy and can find trouble like its his job. And Gray can go from sweet to sour at the drop of a hat.
We had a play date last week and Gray held on to a toy train, tucked firmly under his arm while he watched TV, just so the little boy we had over couldn't play with it.
Just a couple days ago Sadler made this beautiful work of art on the playroom wall while I was cleaning up after lunch
He also learned to climb out of his crib, so we had him knocking at our bedroom door one morning at 6:30 am. Thankfully, we've been able to buy a little more time by turning his crib around...but that will only work for so long until he realizes he can get out the sides.
I am not ready for him to have the free reign that comes with a big boy bed yet!
After 3school and music class yesterday we grabbed lunch through the McDonald's drive through, the lady at the first window had a little acne that Gray noticed and he shouts from the back "DOES THAT GIRL HAVE CHICKEN POX?" when the window was down. I've never been more embarrassed! I grabbed my debit card from her and drove away as fast as I could!
I don't even know how he knows what chicken pox are!
Also this week, Grayden came upstairs where I was and left Sadler alone downstairs so I asked him what Sadler was doing and he replied "um, I think he's playing with knives" Panicked, because that is something Sadler would do, I ran downstairs to find him sitting on the couch playing with pillows! Good one, Gray. You got me good!
Now, I what you're thinking, 'she DOES have her hands full'! And you couldn't be more right, I'll be the first to admit I do have my hands full, BUT my heart is even fuller than my hands.
No matter what kind of trouble my boys cause, or how many walls I have to scrub, or how many time-outs I give, or speeches I give on manners and politeness, I couldn't love these boys more!
When I overhear Gray reciting Psalm 100 that he learned at Rev Kids this week, or when Sadler wants to hold my hand when we snuggle, I forget all about the troubles of the week and become overcome with gratitude for these precious gifts from God.
They are the biggest blessings to Robb and I and we couldn't imagine life without their sweet faces.
My heart overflows
