Lately Judah has been turning into a super-whiny and irritating guy.
He is really into changing his mind a thousand times--I want juice, no I don't want juice, no I WANT juice, no I DON'T want juice, etc.
And anytime things don't go his way (which is a lot--no lunch! no dinner! no nap! no bedtime! no leaving the park! no going inside! no going outside!) this demon face is sure to rear its ugly head:
So let's just say Mother's Day was no picnic for me. Or, as my friend put it--every day is mother's day! Ha ha ha ha.
But there was one shining moment today that I will hold on to forever in my memory bank of treasures. I was getting ready for church in the morning, wearing a dress (which is rare for me), and had just pulled my hair back in a pony-tail (also rare), when I hear Judah's little voice behind me saying,
"Mommy, you look like a princess!"
What? Wow, I never hear that word. All day, every day I only hear about policemen, robbers, batman, robin, jokerman, and the occasional fireman. So of course it made me feel...like a princess.
And I can think of no better mother's day gift than that.
