Stop and smell the...lunchable?

Sometimes, motherhood can prove an monotanous task. Coffee, cheerios, wipe, change, bathe, laundry, Yooooo Gabba Gabba, snack, repeat...I love my job as a stay at home mom and would'nt change it for the world. Looking down at the shaggy haired boy attached to my leg while I attempt to load the dishwasher, I'm a lucky girl. A bigger boy's voice from the top of the stairs calling "I need to you wipe my booty!!" Yep, lucky again.

But even I'm not superwoman. Sometimes, this task gets wearisome. It's a heavy load raising these precious gifts(heck, it's tiring just to take them to Aldi by myself!). And yet, I'm happy to say I caught small, bright break in the clouds today over this little one's lunchable. Small wonders.

 Just take it in-look at that face! In the business of the mundane, underneath the whining and mess of the morning, look at what I was missing.

 Cheese?! Literally, I asked him to say cheese and he shows off the real thing. Ha!
 How sweet this boy is, and how blessed I am to be his mommy.
Today I'm thankful for this tiny moment to blur the business around me and stop and smell the...lunchable.
