Adventures of Motherhood

I am a harried mother of three kids who move at light speed and a husband who lives in a world of words. If that isn't enough, I teach in an elementary school as I slowly watch my hair turn gray.

I love my kids!

I love my kids (my hubby, too)! This morning we were providing the breakfast for the Shiva after morning services. We were out of the house by 7 this morning. (Later than we wanted, but that is a story for another time.) Our kids had to get up on their own, get dressed and washed, have breakfast and even pack their lunches.

When we got home at 8:45, Zach had already left and Dahlia and Noah had their coats on waiting for us. "There was no fighting Mommy". They did everything we asked and more.

It would be nice if they were like this every morning, but when we really need them to do what's expected, they really come through for us. I guess Carmi and I are doing something right.

I am having difficulty dealing with this loss, but having three such wonderful, kind and loving children really helps. Mommy is very proud of you.

I hope you have a happy Tuesday!

Feeling Sad

We lost a friend on Wednesday. The funeral was today and we are feeling very sad.

Hug those you love and even those you just like. Call a friend you haven't spoken to in a while.

Life is too short and you never know what will happen tomorrow.

Have a good night my friends.
