I'm so thankful to be home with my boys.  And they are a delight.  Abe loves his little brother.  And Joel is becoming quite the little cutie.  But I will admit yesterday evening the thoughts "Is this my initiation into motherhood?"  and "Grandma can't get here soon enough" ran through my head.  You see I've had a very clinging, moody toddler all week.  I am not sure what exactly it is, but I have an inkling it is related to daddy being back at work for 12 hours a day.  And not having any friends over to play for a whole week.  And being two.  And having a new little brother that can't quit play with him yet. And still being stuck inside most of the day.

But you know what, even though it was nearly 6 pm yesterday and I was hungry, and my supper plan wasn't going to happen because I'd spent the last hour dealing with kiddos instead of getting it started, and the house still had toys strewn about, I am so glad that I get to be the one to do this.  That I get to be the one to hug and to discipline and see what is going on with my family.

I'm just going to say I completely understand and agree. :)

When's Grandma coming to town? Did she finally have to book something without Grandpa?
