Eli hasn't been feeling well, which means he has been my cling-on for a few days. When he hasn't been stuck to me like glue, inevitably he is getting into things he shouldn't.
I had a lot to do this morning. After aerobics I had a half hour to get in shower and get back out the door with the boys. I took a quick shower and was relieved when I got out because the boys weren't yelling, screaming, or banging on anything.
"Maybe they behaved themselves for the three minutes I was in the shower!" I thought.
I should have known that silence is rarely a good thing. Next thing I know, Jonah comes in and says to me "Mommy, come see what Eli is doing!"
I found Eli sitting on the couch, surrounded by a pile of sidewalk chalk. And where there is chalk, there is chalk dust... everywhere! Of course he had to go to time out and then help clean up.
It wasn't until later that I thought, "Hey! I should have taken a picture of that!" I can't believe I didn't think of it. I guess in this case the Mommy superceded the blogger. :o)
On our way home later in the day I saw this sidewalk chalk heart on a house and it made me think of this morning.
I hope that even when I am frustrated with my boys, I can still show love for them. No matter what kind of trouble they get into, they are still my boys and I love them tons and bunches!
Happy Valentine's Day to you and those you love!
