So often it’s hard to capture the moments. To remember to note the moments that make me smile. So many days come to an end and I’m exhausted, dragging myself to bed and it’s the stressful parts, the overwhelming parts that are in my head as I drift off to sleep. But it’s the happy, heartwarming, uplifting moments that keep me going. Make me get out of bed each morning to do it again. As Momalom and Bad Mommy Moments have pegged them… the !!! moments in our days.
Finally I’ve captured some. To remember. And to share.
Early morning hugs. She grabbed him. He let her. I handed her my !!! (Thanks Sarah!) and it will now be remembered. And when she’s shoving him away from her project or he’s yanking out a handful of her hair, I will know, these happy moments DO exist.
Hannah received this medal (along with everyone else in her gymnastics program at school) but she placed it around my neck that night for being The Best Mommy. I refuse to remove it. Because dammit, I deserve it.
I didn’t have a chance to grab my !!! but this moment should be noted. Luke is afraid of going anywhere near our pool. But he was hot. And his water table would just have to do. One way or another, he was getting in there.
His and her drinks on date night. Enough said.
A full moon. A husband willing to take a picture as I held my !!! card in front of the beautiful glowing circle in the sky. A perfect summer night.
