When my oldest finished his homework he took the fussbucket upstairs to play and for the first time all day a calm settled over me. I wanted to sit and relax with my feet up, but somehow I mustered the strength to do dishes and bake banana muffins. I have no clue where this energy came from, but it was one of those moments in life where I thanked God that I have kids ten years apart. Because yesterday I needed the sanity of a clean kitchen and my sweet boy gave me that gift. (I'm pretty sure my husband appreciates it too!)
|The fruit of my labor!|
What's even better is that when the Gunny did get home from work as I was wrapping up feeding the fussbucket he noticed how tired I was and kindly offered to make dinner! So I did get a little time to relax with a glass of wine to finish off the evening. Living in a house full of boys is exhausting, but it definitely has it's perks! I am blessed by each of my boys and their love for me.
