There was a night a while back at the end of a long day, my husband got home late, and after dinner I stole away to the couch to rest a bit while my husband started the bedtime process for our 3 kids. The following are 13 things I heard shouted down from the upstairs in the 10 minutes I attempted to take a break downstairs on the couch:
Mom, where's Jack? (my oldest son's stuffed dog)
Go see if Mommy can get your hair bands out.
Mommy, come read me a story!
Where are his regular jammies? All I can find are the warm jammies!
I want Mommy!
Mom, come up here!
Mommy will brush my teeth.
Are you going to lay out his clothes for tomorrow?
But I love Mommy!
Daddy, you did it the wrong way, I fixed it.
Mommy, will you still say prayers with me?
I need Mommy!
Although tiring at times and lacking in breaks or overtime pay, I am ever so thankful for my mommy job!
