five saving graces :: parenting

one of the redeeming features of having children is that they are constantly loving & amusing.  no matter how many loads of laundry, how many times i've counted to 3 in an hour, how many times i've read the same book, or how many moments i've wished myself, well, elsewhere, one of my boys does something that makes it all worthwhile.

5 saving graces of having children:

  1. dressing them up in ridiculous costumes is totally acceptable and considered adorable by some.  it doesn't even have to be halloween.
  2. my 5-year-old son wants to marry me and thinks i'm beautiful. 
  3. their warm snuggle and intoxicating smell as babies.
  4. brilliant statements that make me laugh.  "mommy, a garage is like a house's mouth".
  5. the sound of them giggling.
