It's the little things

It's been a chaotic weekend, and it's only Saturday afternoon. Today has been a flurry of laundry, sorting, whining, kids running, baths, drama because the planned sleepover friend now cannot come tonight, toys scattered, gloomy weather, headache, Wii supplies everywhere, torn books, what are we having for dinner worries.

In the midst of all of this I wiped my baby's hands and face after he had yogurt. I usually just do the quick scrub and wipe around the face without really noticing. Today I really looked. Looked at his big blue eyes, the long eyelashes, the smooth skin, the smile looking back at me.

I'm glad that I did. I really needed that.

Maybe I should try looking at my kids. Lately all I've seen is pink eye. It would be nice to remember there are sweet kids behind their infections!

Aw, they are so sweet. I'm glad that your sweet baby helped you to smile. I still think you are so tough, and I wish I lived closer to you so that I could help you right now. You and your sweet family are in my prayers. ((((HUGS)))))
