Life with kids is a different one each day. Now I know you day DUH. but it is nuts how a day can be so different.
My household is usually calm…wait no it is not. We have our moments of doing what your suppose to – being where your suppose to …but we also have our all out fighting. It is crazy at times. The noise – the stupid stuff they fight about. THE amount my kids fight. It can feel endless.
BUT it is amazing. When something happens how we all come together. Really together.
My youngest had shelving fall on him – part of a closet system. And really cracked his noggin. We had to call the ambulance due to blood, kids, snow, and his lack of being him (sleepiness)…the other kids not only ROSE to the occasion – they went beyond. Quickly finished making their lunches for the day (that when I heard the crashed I dropped completely and ran) got completely ready for the school bus all without a single direction. They were scared but kept going…amazing. truly. I am so proud of them today. I had the most stress and the most pride all in one day. A day after I thought they would never get along and never would our house not have fighting…I was wrong. What a difference a day makes.
They saw their brother go out the door on a “bed” and remained calm. Tonight we talked about it and they were so understanding and caring it was truly amazing.
life with kids. it is different each day. no doubt we will be eating one another again tomorrow now that the littlest is going to be fine. bring on the thunder-dome.
