Mom is an Annoying Word

Asleep at last... ;)
Just put together this present from Grandma & Grandpa
Aiden LOVES it!!

Usually, I write about how wonderful life is and how fast the time is passing by. This week has been a little rough though. I never realized how annoying the word "mom" can be and how my adorable little child can drive me totally up the wall repeating it over and over again. It would be one thing, if I was not acknowledging him and he was trying to get my attention. However, he just says "mom" repeatedly even when I answer him. I think he likes trying to get under my skin because when it gets to a point where I think that I am going to burst from annoyance, he cracks up laughing and runs down the hall. Every time I face a parenting hurdle like this, I gain even more respect for all those extremely patient moms out there. I consider myself to be a pretty patient person, but even my patience wears thin and I long for the moment where he goes down for a nap and I get to enjoy my hour of silence. Does this make me a terrible person? Maybe, but I made a resolution to be more honest about all aspects of my life and not just always paint a picture of perfection. I think it is okay to get annoyed with your kids, it does not mean you love them any less. It just means your human. I did not realize until recently, how important it is to take a few minutes every day for yourself. I used to think that people who did that were selfish and self-centered, now I realize it is a necessary measure to keep your sanity.  Right now I am trying to plain Aiden's birthday despite obstacle after obstacle, hopefully I will see many of you there in just a couple weeks!
