Sometimes I cave when things are asked of my by my kids, and sometimes I fight. Motherhood is a battle in Choosing Your Battles. It was chilly outside today, but that didn't stop me from saying yes when Sam felt like Jacob should wear his new batman shirt he received from Mike and Kathleen on his birthday last weekend. So I put him in it. He was actually stinky adorable. Turns out this child fits better in 18 month clothes than I thought he would.
This kid is off and running. He makes me treasure being a mother of 3.
I took all 3 yahoos to the dentist today.
I was amazed at how well they behaved...in the dentist's office. Even Jacob. I pumped him full of puffs. And even with Chris's sensory issues, I didn't have to be in the room while they did his x-rays, I love our dentist, his whole staff is wonderful. Dr. Brad Stutler in case you were wondering. But before we arrived, and as we left, they all lost their minds. It was like they were on best behavior for the staff, which I suppose is as it should be, then for me, they lost it completely. By the time we got home, I was Fried.
Not relaxing at all
However, we all have clean teeth, and no one (not even me, and I hadn't been in 2 years!) had any cavities, which is amazing considering how much sugary crap I'd been eating lately. And Sam's problem with fruit snacks, I was amazed his teeth were intact too. Pretty impressive. Still, whether you're a supermom or an active kid, getting out in public can be exhausted. Jake and I plopped ourselves on the couch and just vegged out for a while.
Even Batman gets exhausted.
