"Am I talking to the wall?"
"Don't aim in that direction. You'll hit your brother with the puck."
"How can you be bored? We're drowning in toys!"
"You're hungry AGAIN???"
Talk about being a broken record. I feel like I'm always saying these things. Where are those nuggets of maternal wisdom? Gratefully, my wonderful Dad pops into my mind every once in a while when I'm having one of those "moments" with the boys.
This morning, there was a standoff between 2 of my sons. One son is making a face at the top of the stairs. One son is making not so nice comments at the bottom of the stairs.
Enter mother. "Grandpa John believed that we should live life always thinking of the other person who lives with us, around us, and shares this world." Even though they didn't know Dad, I hope his voice and wisdom resides in a comforting place within my kids.
My Dad told me to fight those inner dragons that hold me back. Dad, some days I need a bigger lance!! If he was here, he would have a good comeback for that one.
