Keeping it real

I realize that my kids will probably read all this stuff that I write about them one day and after that last post I feel like I should do some clarification so they don't get the wrong idea. Gus does cry sometimes. Ford has worked hard to earn the nickname "The Hornet" and Claire is sometimes so whiny that I want to dunk my head in a bucket of cold water to escape having to endure one more whiny sentence. So there, kids, you are sweet and smart and funny but you are also real kids and some days you wear me out. But I wouldn't trade it for the world and I love you.

Thank you for your transparency!!! Although I have to tell you that you have encouraged me over the years to focus on the positive things about my children instead of my constant focus on how the boys drive me crazy. So, keep it up - all the while showing us that we share common frustrations as moms.
