Being a mom of four is a life full of adventure and enjoyment for me. Yes, I have my ups and downs, but I've learned to laugh at myself and have patience among other things. I'm reminded frequently not take things so serious all the time and often catch a glimpse of how the world looks through the eyes of my children. Being able to enjoy those little moments as they come at me, is what makes being a mom so worth it. I've been feeling truly blessed this way over these 3 past years that I've been able to work from home around them. I've realized how much I enjoy being with them more and that I don't want to let so many of those little moments slip through my fingers anymore. Those moments do pass all too quickly and I know I can never get them back.
I love knowing that I'm able to enjoy more special family time and giggles with my kiddos and have more memories of it. I'm there for my older two girls when they really need me most as they start to go through all those changes and near closer to the tweens and teen years. Yes, those years are coming and I'm wondering If I'll be prepared. For my three year old boy/girl twins, it's been so enjoyable for me to watch them grow and learn, and to teach them fun things. Enjoying the simple things with them like a funny little nursery rhyme. Here's one I always liked:
|What are little girls made of? |
Sugar and spice
and everything nice,
That's what little girls are made of.
Slugs and snails
That's what little boys are made of.
