A quiet moment

It's easy to talk about the struggles of parenthood; the stresses, the catastrophes, and the challenges. It's particularly easy for me to do that with humor and sarcasm. What can I say? It's how I handle most things. However, I just want to be clear that I would not change this journey for the world. There isn't a single more important thing to me than being a mom. I normally don't write about sappy and mushy things (reference again the humor and sarcasm), but this morning I captured Kate in a moment of quiet that just warmed my heart.



I look at this face and I can totally understand how I suddenly lost my ability to say "no". This face reminds me why I allow my house to be infested with Polly Pockets and Princesses. This face makes all of the hard times so very worth it.
