I'm glad I'm not the only one.
Especially on days when I need to take the kids to Kohl's in an effort to buy Abby a new Christmas dress and attempt to get the kids some new shoes for church. There is something about Kohl's that turns my children into crazy, hyper, wild animals. Every.single.time. You would think that I would have learned my lesson by now. Even using the double stroller/buggy thing does me absolutely no good. They won't stay in the thing for more than two minutes, and while they are seated, Noah is pulling at Abby's hair or trying to climb from the front of the buggy to the back basket and hide inside. Abby is whining incessantly about Noah bothering her, of course, and she usually says she has to go to the bathroom about four minutes after we walk into the store. Oh, how I love going into public bathrooms with both of the kids at the same time....ugh!
So yes, I can totally see why 85% of moms surveyed feel that way.
Of course, I also completely understand why 94% of moms surveyed say that being a mom is also the BEST job they've ever had.
I'm one of those too.
Especially when my little boy runs up to me (out of the blue), throws his arms around my neck, and says, "Mama, I love you for-evuh. You ah my favorite mama in the whole wool-d."
I always reply that I'll love him forever too and that he's my favorite little boy in the whole world.
When we make our Holiday Treasure Box next week, the very first thing I will add is a picture of my sweet boy and my precious girl.
