A Lovely Life

There are days when I cannot keep up with my 3 year old. Ok, make that most days.  He is full of energy and always getting into something he shouldn't be. That can be frustrating at times. But what the Lord has shown me through this adventure of parenting is to love each child for who they are. To really know them and rejoice in the  qualities they were created with. While I have at times cried {can I get an amen?} this kid makes me laugh harder than I ever have. These are just some of the lovely moments I get to experience on a daily basis with N.

He can play for hours with his head in a box...

with one shoe...

this is how he eats a cupcake{& pretty much everything else}

he somehow gets the dog to stand still long enough to do this...

and I sometimes walk in to find scenes like this...

He is one of the great gifts in my life. Wouldn't change a thing.

lol!! You DO have your hands full, but I love it! Remember to focus on all the blessings and smiles during those times that you feel overwhelmed and frustrated :)

i can totally get where you are coming from since my boy is currently 3. some days i just look at him and shake my head. and other days he has me laughing so hard i can't even see straight! i think God gives us three year old boys so that we'll make sure and pray. alot. ;)
