moments like these

this picture really puts into perspective the way you prioritize your time. everyone is so caught up trying to get this done, trying to get that done, crossing off all the to-dos from the list and trying to get that overtime in at work to look good for your boss. but if you have kids, spending time with them is so important.  interacting with them and really being a part of their development is the most important thing you can do.

i try to remember that when i get home and i’m tired but baby girl isn’t. i try to remember that when she’s spilled her spaghetti all over the floor, on purpose, and has made me upset that i now need to clean pasta sauce out of the tile grout. i try to remember that when she takes all the dvds off the shelf and has spread them all across the living room floor. i try to remember that even when she ripped the newspaper to shreds because she thought it was funny.

i really do love every minute i spend with her, and wish that i was able to spend more of my day with her. but bills. and errands. even when she makes me frustrated i adore her little face and try to hug her and kiss her as much as i can, because she’s mine and i love her and she’s perfect even if she is throwing a tantrum because she wants more cookies. i cherish every single moment i have with her because i am here to witness the beautiful growing girl that she is…
