my boys and i

this is week 3 of the hubby being back to work
after a 2.5 month hiatus.

although sometimes i'd like to tear my hair out
and cry myself over tantrums, spilled milk,
a hungry crying baby and a dirty diaper
or to even put myself in the corner for two minutes
for feeling badly about having to put my dylan in time out,
i still try to remember that the good days always outweigh the bad.

like dylan apologizing before i even lose my temper
for something he has done and he knows he shouldn't.
or kaelan cooing and babbling when his kuya (older brother)
is trying to talk to him.
or waking up after a long nap
to find dylan has moved to kaelan's side of the bed
so that he can hug his baby brother and seeing them both fast asleep.

yes, good days definitely outweigh the bad.

and though the three of us are missing their daddy.
i find that sometimes, it's great to have one less boy in the house.
it's one less gray hair on this mommy's head!

It's ok love, you reminded me of Charlotte from sex and the city the last movie when she cries because of the frustration she feels and because she feels like a bad mother for feeling that way, but God in no way are we evil. I cried so much in the beginning it's not even funny and I would feel bad because I would think omg I'm bad, but we it happens and yes the happy days always outweigh the bad ones :)
Especially with your two cuties :)

xo Kary xo Love you heaps!!

Your boys are ADORABLE! I'm not a momma yet but I can only imagine...I'm sure you're doing much better at not pulling your hair out than you realize! :)

I love this picture. And the boys look adorable. Big brother hugs sounds just so cute and its great that they are so close. I imagine some days are very difficult but as long as you remember the good days it'll be okay.

They really are so cute! xx
