Yesterday I sat down on the couch for a few minutes before starting dinner with Ainsley & Addison, who were watching a movie & began to read. About 5 minutes after I had started to read Ainsley said, "Mom, why are you reading?" I turned to her & said, "Because I like to read. One day when you are big you will like it too." She just looked at me for a minute then said, "Well, when I'm big I will play with my kids more so they don't bother me while I'm trying to read!"

Can't a Mom have just 15 minutes to escape into some other world? That's all I ask, 15 minutes!!



Do you ever wonder when life is going to start slowing down, just a little bit?

Do you ever wonder how your kids can be the most adorable, silly, funny little things one second & the next be the most terrible, whiny little stinkers ever?

Do you ever wonder why there are ALWAYS 3 batches of laundry waiting to be washed by you & only you every single day?

Do you ever wonder what you're going to make for dinner?

Do you ever wonder how the whole house can be destroyed in a matter of minutes?

Do you ever wonder if having a full time job is easier than being a full time Mom?

Do you ever wonder if the things you say to the people who mean the most really sink in?

Do you ever wonder what our little ones will have to face when they are 14 years old?

Do you ever wonder what your dog is thinking as he watches you through the window?

Do you ever wonder what it's like in Italy right now?

I do!
