we all win

It has been a crazy day, let me tell you! But at the end of the day they really are trying. Who knows what causes siblings to react like that one day and be fine the next. While I was driving around town today running errands I was reflecting on the morning and my reaction... I peaked into the rearview mirror to see my little guys passed out in their carseats. Snoring, drooling, the whole bit. It was the most peaceful moment we had had all day.

It is only natural to start wondering "why can't my kids be like this all the time? why don't my kids behave like those other kids!" I even caught myself earlier today asking "what is wrong with these guys!!". I stopped myself at this point, what a horrible mom I am being! Comparing my kids to other kids. There is absolutly nothing wrong with my kids. To be honest they are exceptionally well behaved most of the time. When they do act out they are behaving exactly like a 4 year old and a 3 year old should behave.

I think perhaps I am to tuff on them, expect to much. I have seen how smart they both are and sometimes want to treat them like they are older. What I should be doing is just letting them be kids. Pushing the limits and testing your boundaries are just part of the process of growing up. Wish me luck for more patience and understanding tomorrow!
