There was this perfect moment today where I was completely and totally, blissfully happy. I know what you're all thinking...ON A SUNDAY?!?!?! Sundays are usually HARD because I am busy chasing Gav at church, fighting him to go to nursery, Max is usually not so cooperative, I have lessons to teach, then we get home and 9 times out of 10 we are running to visit family. Today, some of the usual happened but there was this absolutely perfect, surreal moment where I'm holding Max, he's being so sweet and calm and Gavin is trying to put himself and his church bag on the bench and instead of freaking out he lets me help him. I don't know what it was, but right then I felt so incredibly happy to be a mother. There was nothing miraculous that happened but I almost lost it right there in the middle of sacrament meeting. And the day just got better and better. The kids were great, they both took naps at the same time, we played outside on the swingset and went for a walk as a family. I think tonight it just finally hit me that I've acheived what I've always wanted. It might not always be perfect, but it's definitely worth it. Little moments like today are such a sweet reward for all the work we do as mothers/parents/family members.
