Tonight, I am rushing to participate in my Twitter Chat class, working, eating dinner, thinking about this blog and washing some clothes. All of which is occurring after 8 pm. There was no time after work to get any of that done before basketball practices. But it has to get done, otherwise, I wont get credit for my classes, I will be starving and cranky, I will have more work tomorrow and there will be no clean clothes for my children - who seem to wear more clothes in a day than I do!
With all of this going on, my oldest son offers to make me Spagettios for dinner. How kind is it that he knows I can't veer my eyes away from the twitter chat for a second or I will be lost! Then as I tuck them in for the night, I stop in between rooms to sort the laundry. My youngest asks if he could help me and can I give him some chores. He is asking me while he is filling my diffuser with the perfect mixture of oils to help me sleep. I's sure he would like to be paid for his chores, but I will just relish in that he helped me sort the laundry and started it. These two are never lacking with love and support for this busy Mommy.
Of course I am biased with my opinion of my boys, but I am just so proud of them. I know that they are not perfect and I am far from perfect. But this mom is working hard at raising someone else's future husbands, which is an important job. I love doing it!
