I love the summer but sometimes being a stay-at-home mom and therefore getting little break from being around the kids, yeah we have our bad days. The other day they were bickering, not listening and not taking no for an answer and I had to be firm with them, to which of course I got responses about how I am a mean mommy and I yell too much. I know it's normal but it doesn't make it anymore fun. The following morning, I was able to witness this:
Although obviously already awake, Jake will still a little groggy one morning and just kind of chillin on the couch. He was then joined by Jadyn, who obviously still a little groggy herself, snuggled up right next to him for some brother/sister cuddle time. It was just one of the sweetest moments for me as a mom to witness their love for each other - how much Jadyn looks up to her big brother and how much Jake wants to take care of his little sister. And I love that they still fight over who gets to snuggle with me sometimes too.
I guess my point is that the snuggles definitely outweigh the struggles.
