Do you ever have those?
I sure hope not.
But, unfortunately, I do.
And in my heart of hearts I know, of course, that it is not true because I see how amazing my kids are and I figure I have a little something to do with that but that doesn't mean we don't have our so-so or even bad days.
I recently read this post that Jennifer directed me to and it REALLY got me thinking about what is NOT in my pictures.
What if there was a photo of every moment with my kids?
Well, then I wouldn't always look that good, I assure you. For MANY reasons.
But we DO have good times and days and I know I need to focus on that, while doing my best to change the other stuff as much as I can.
And yes (!!) there ARE days when they eat all their lunch and brush their teeth without protesting and days with more smiles than frowns and plenty of hugs and laughter.
Those are the memories I cling to, here and now.
