One of those days...

Today was one of those days where nothing goes right, everyone is cranky and tired and everything happens at the exact wrong time.  I finally broke down into tears tonight at dinner (while Katelynn was rubbing her dinner in her hair, throwing her food everywhere and Andee just peed her pants all over the chair and rug) and of course Damon was really the only one to notice (Tyler wasn't home).  He looked at me and said, "What's wrong Mommy, don't cry.  Do you miss your mommy and daddy?  Do you want to call your mommy and daddy?" That totally wasn't the problem (even though I do miss you dad and mom), so I was trying to think of a way to answer, to appease to him I just said, ya I miss my mommy and daddy.  He said, "You meed to call them (that was not a typo, that's how he says need), here, I'll find your phone and you can call your mommy.  Do you want to go see them over at the desert? (that's what he calls the west) Let's fly in the airplane and go see your mommy and daddy."  Talk about turning the whole night around with a sweet innocent boy who is so worried about his mom.  I no longer felt awful but wanted to hug all my kids and tell them how much I love them.  That moment was worth "one of those days".

I totally understand you on this post. Sometimes the Lord sends angels to give us strength, and sometime those angels are our children. This post made me smile and get all choked up at the same time! :)

Damon sounds like he's becoming more of a lifesaver these days rather than a menace! What a sweet moment to remember, although not so sweet when you think of the day you just had.

Shae, you are a rock star and you keep your family going. It's days like these we all want to give up, but somehow we push through. I hope we all look back and laugh at these moments because otherwise, why would we have any more children. Keep strong, you'll be blessed.

Damon you are such a good boy--I am so proud of you. You know you are the man in the house when your daddy is working so hard, don't you? You take good care of Andee and Kaitlin and your mommy. We love you all and pray for you each night and day. Love Grandpa Scott
