Circus Morning Thoughts and Things: This mornings activities brought back a flood of memories. Jack has been waiting his turn to sleep over. Even thought it was a school night his mother agreed, so he and his sister stayed the night.
I forgot how hard it is to pull them away from cartoons to get them dressed. Then finally helping put each pant leg on as they stare at the T.V.
I forgot how many variety of breakfast foods you prepare just to get something in their bellies,
and how many times you tell them that eating a good breakfast is important to their learning.
I forgot how picky girls are about their hair. Since when do they not like ribbons?
I forgot that it is important to teach them to make their beds...who has time for that?
I forgot the sense of accomplishment and gladness as you send them out the door.
I forgot to brush Jacks teeth!
