good thing they’re cute

Some days are rough, really, really rough.  On those days it’s a good thing they’re cute, really, really cute.  On those days I’m reminded how great all those other days are.  There were tests before.  Tests to see if mama will still love even my most miserable me.  Now those tests seem like friendly and easy there’s-no-wrong-answer-here kinds of tests.  They seem like normal toddler tests that most (all?) kiddos use to see how much they can trust the stability, structure and consistency of the whole family set up.  I guess I’m glad that both of my kiddos feel secure enough to conduct the next round of tests, the sort of tests that kind of defy description.  They trust that I’m still going to love them and hug them and rock them and kiss them on the forehead.  I get that it’s important, essential even, for them to make sure.  Still though, on those days, it’s a good thing they’re cute.

    Thank God you have always been a great test taker! And, you are right, they are SO cute. They are definitely my favorite “cowboys”.
