~It's The Other Way Around~





You see, I thought it was the kids that drove us parents to the edge most of them time.

I think not.

This is how The Little Man feels about:




Eating his breakfast...


Cleaning up his toys....


and feeding the dog.






However, when I asked him how much he loves his mama...
he said......

THIS MUCH!!!


The moral to the story is this...
We drive them just as crazy as they drive us.
We want some slack....give them some slack.
We want them to be patient with us.....be patient with them.
We want them to feel sympathy for us....feel sympathy for them.
We don't want them to think we are perfect....don't expect them to be perfect.
We want lots of hugs....give them lots of hugs.
We want their love.....GIVE THEM DOUBLE LOVE!!!

That is not how this post was suppose to be.
It was suppose to be about how much I can drive Bradley crazy.
Then somewhere in the middle of it all that came out.

Oh well, sorry!!

Now I must go.
I have lots of slack, patience, sympathy, hugs and love to give.

HAPPY WEEKEND!!!!

Anne Marie said...

super cute post.

I read once, that when your child hugs you, don't let go until they do....it's surprising how right that is!

Christina said...

Awww, what a sweet boy. They do love us so much don't they.

Hope he enjoys camp this summer---wow 7 weeks!

Your cabinets are coming along. They are going to look just fabulous.

I LOVE how the things on your heart are poured out in the posts. Love how you intended to write about one thing - and then your fingers just typed away what is truly important.

What a great reminder!

Just be happy! said...

Oh so cute!
I am having the time of my life hugging and kissing baby Lucas, life couldn't be any better!
He is a good baby, when I take him shopping with me he sleeps most of the time, so I can't complain.
:o)

Have a wonderful weekend!

So very true! I can nag my kids at times too much. Ask them how many times I told them to clean up their stuff today (we had company coming). Good reminder to give them a break because everything doesn't always have to be perfect!
