My children always eat the healthiest things and we never condone DISGUSTING behavior.
Our children have perfect table manners and would never act unruly in a restaurant.
Our house is always immaculate. The laundry is always folded and put away neatly. Our motto is you always finish ALLLLL the house work before you dance!
Our family never fights- it's like a love fest around here.
We have trained our children to be very gentle and careful with our fancy household furnishings.
We won't stand for any nasty table manners...
My husband make sure that his interactions with the children are always educational.
We never have to tell our children to be quiet because they are naturally so calm natured.
Ok well.... maybe our family isn't perfect after all. There are sometimes piles of laundry and a messy kitchen while we dance. My kiddos are sometimes unruly and almost always at least a little bit noisy. They aren't famous dancers or ready for American Idol. Chips and candy pretty much make it into the diet weekly and Kaiya sometimes eats her toes. Russ makes our toddler do funny trick for marshmallows and she often looks like a meatball at the dinner table. Not to mention this morning when I walked into her room and her diaper was off with nastiness I won't begin to delve into all over her bed. It's not a perfect picture- we don't have the beaver cleaver thing going on around here. Still when the view in my review mirror is this..... how can I complain?
My days are spent watching miracles happen...
Like a little girl who couldn't sit up alone on a couch 4 months ago running, climbing and sliding at Chik-Fil-A. That's a miracle.
Like a little girl from Guatemala who was afraid of her own shadow asking to do competitive swimming....
Like a 5 year old diva crying because she loves her family so much that she never wants to grow up and leave...
and a husband who says his favorite part of the day was coming home ALMOST every day... and forbids me to worry about making dinner so I can focus on my girls.
I guess some people might think my life is simple and I am missing out on something. In my mind this is everything that matters at all.
