Sometimes, being a mum is just so easy.... Tonight was one of those nights. My kids were with their father for a few days (we have shared custody) and my fiance is overseas visiting his brother. After a full days work, I'm not normally very patient, but tonight was different. We got home, my boy wanted rugby on tv so he got it while my daughter and I did her homework inbetween cooking dinner. Then the kids got a bubblebath - they got to play for about 20mins before we bathed and they loved it. My daughter even commented: "Mum, if you were on the internet, everybody would say they wish they had a Mum like you". How sweet of her :) Then dinner and ice-cream after. Don't get me wrong, I love my kids, they are my everything, but with our busy lives, I some times forget how fast they grow and to appreciate the time with them I have at their ages. Tonight was a special night, so easy, no stress, no fights....just...lovely. So for all the mums out there, that at times wonder how they will survive the evening or day with their young ones, I get those days too, more often than not. But it take nights like tonight for me to reflect on the wonders of parenthood. I love you guys, you're little monsters at times, but you're my monsters and for that, I love you always.
