Mother's Day is a day in which we are to celebrate the most important women in our lives. The ones that have sacrificed for us over and over and over again. They loved us at our weakest, lowest points and were forever our biggest cheerleaders, and were the first ones we run to with our boo-boos. As I became a mother, I learned to appreciate my own mother that much more. What I never realized was all the expectations mothers have-and the ones they let go of. I expect my children to behave a certain way; to treat others with respect and to be decent little humans. That will not change. However, when it comes to other things, they are now negotiable. Like eating food off the ground. Sure-go for it. Just don't hit your brother in the face. Or throw dirt on him. Or sit on him. I attempted to take a picture of all three of these beings...alone...when it was close to bed time. Risky? Yup. Worth it? Nope! I expected apparently different children to magically appear and take a pinterest worthy photo that I could turn into a canvas for Mother's Day gifts. Instead I got...that. One kid running away. One kid chasing him and one just eating dirt. I mean, I brought a couch for them to sit on-I thought I was set. But, the more I look at this picture, the more I like it. It sums of life of 3 kids pretty well. It never goes as planned. Someone is almost always off on their own, someone is always mad about something. And that is okay. Now, please stop putting dirt on your brother's head!
