I am officially 39 weeks pregnant with little Naomi. I am usually a stickler about an hour a day tops for screen time. That includes anything with a screen whatsoever. The boys usually switch off screens...Ipad, XBox, my phone, PBS Kids on the computer, etc. They get 20 minutes each (Josiah just watches), switching until the hour is up.
This week, though? I'm loosening my grip and setting my rules aside. I am propping up my feet and grabbing my own fill of screen time (Facebook, Pinterest, blogs, and my new hobby: Flickr!) I'm trying to take a photo a day, per my friend's challenge to capture the everyday moments. Here is today's photo!!
I can't help but think of future days when these two and their brothers will come home from dirt biking or mudding in their dad's passed-down FJ Cruiser or from a good old fashioned game of mud ball....all covered in filth and stinking up my house like they already do.
I can't believe that on those days, I will think back to THESE days...
when they were so cute and little and all they had to get messy in was a little puddle of mud in our backyard after a good rain.
I'm sure, like I did today, I will hose them down, send them to the shower, and kiss their wet, CLEAN heads of hair while taking even larger loads of clothes to the washer to soak.
I am blessed to be the mom and wife in this family of six :) I am so thankful that this is where God has me right now. I am not perfect (I am NOT supermom!), but I pray that I represent Christ well and glorify His name in all things!!
