I have not failed, I have just found 10,000 ways that don't work.

This little girl has got me stumped. It was a hard day...or two. I feel like I have lost my mommy mojo. I am just out of touch with her needs....at least today. Does she have a cold? Is she teething? What are those tears and cries trying to tell me? As much as I try and fight it, today it seems as though my happiness is connected to the quality and quantity of my kids naps. I love you little Baylie girl. As hard as it was today, I'm sad that it feels like the last few months of babiness is almost gone before she is a toddler. Sorry for venting my motherhoodness today. I try to pretend that there is a whole lot more to me than my kids, but thats not really true. Cause I am a mom. When Luke told me he would rather not eat the leftover shepard's pie that I was reheating, he asked if he could have a sandwich. To which I replied, "If you want to make it, you can have it." And then he asked me, "Can I have a whole one?" And I said, "Of course." He decided on peanut butter and honey. I told him I would give him help if he needed it. He asked me to get the bread and he did the rest. And I caught him crouched on the counter like this. I think he was washing the knife?
