The end of a long day....

It's been that kinda week, what can you say? I can say that something has gotten into Stephen this week -
There have been moments all week were I wondered if Stephen was sick - I've taken his temperture so much he now thinks it's a game, why have I done that? b/c if he's acting like this b/c he's 2 then I have to discipline, get frustrated, walk away, put him to bed a little early and open that funny little labeled wine my mom got me for a good laugh - if he's sick, then there's a reason for this sudden change of mood, and I can turn on the tv, snuggle with him, hold him, give him all sorts of special attention
So at the end of this week, after taking his temperature a few times, I know he's not sick (thank God b/c I really don't want him to be sick). But I did have to put him to bed early last night...
But with all of this I wouldn't give up a minute with either one of my amazing gifts from God! I am truly privileged to be able to be with them during the day - b/c I get to witness them growing together, playing together, Abby crawling on all fours (she has been an huge fan of the army crawl for a long time now!) and pulling up on her own! I do love this job! :)

It's a two-year old thing! Believe me. Everything that you have described, we go through too. Just add the stress of selling your house (or is it sold?), the holidays, a mobile Abby, and everything else! You are such a wonderful mommy and it is so easy to tell that you love your children!

Great pics! Is that good wine? I need a couple of bottles after taking Lucy on the road with me . Two year olds are a breed of their own. God help us to make it another terrific day with them!
