I love going back and reading my blog. It reminds me of things I had long forgotten and while it is not all sunshine and roses, I am glad that the happier moments seem to outweigh the meltdowns. I hope one day my girls will read it and understand a bit more about their early lives and have a little compassion for their poor mother.
I will be the first to admit that I have been terrible this year about recording our family shenanigans. Life is busy and I seem to have zero time to do anything reflective during the day. By the time my children have passed out, I'm not good for much outside of a little sewing and a little more reality TV. Occasionally though something will happen like it did today and I think it must be recorded for posterity.
This is my exchange with Jude after dinner tonight:
Jude: Mama, can I have another popsicle?
Me: No. I think one is enough for tonight.
Jude: But Elie said that she got another popsicle.
Me: I think Elie is pulling your leg.
Jude: Well, can I pull her leg and have another popsicle?
That line was so good it almost worked.
