There are some days where I feel like I am nailing this whole parenting thing
and then there are other days that are a little, well, longer.
Our daily battles over the jar of vasoline
(z rubs it on her cheeks to keep them from getting chapped…
the only problem is that she takes ping-pong sized dollops and leaves smears of vasoline on every surface she touches. It is not cute - it is a mess.)
Our morning wrestle over dental hygiene
(She rather likes brushing her teeth…but just the back ones.
Getting her to hold the toothbrush to her front few chompers requires parental demonstration, negotiation and brute strength)
Our unending game of keep-away with the iphone
(and my nagging fear…realization…that my phone use has set a bad example)
There is a reason they say motherhood isn’t easy.
But it is better than I ever could have imagined
I love these two little people with everything that I’ve got.
And what’s more, I like them with all of my heart.
