As I sit here at my computer, typing, my back covered in red heart stickers and green stickie notes (my five year old is not lighting fire to anything at the moment - I do what I can!) I am trying to meld the moments of my motherhood into something worth reading.
And I just can't do it.
She is chanting something in a high falsetto and giggling. . .honk honk, yes, that is my nose.
"Now I'll put one on your foooooooreeeeeeeheaaaaaaad! You look like the Heart Fairy."
I really wanted to take a shower today - I am sure the gang around here would appreciate it. "Baby, I am going to get a shower. Please get those off my back. . . "
OW! She rips one off of my nose.
"Ha, ha, Mom, now you look like the Heart Fairy of Doom! Here's your sword, Your Majesty. . . " she hands me a plastic ruler, then continues to rip the surprisingly adhesive hearts from places I didn't realize I had hair!
I hope that this behind-the-scenes view of my blog-writing gives you a better perspective of the sheer effort it takes some days to get it all in. . . as for the stuff she's put down the back of my shirt, now I have to go get it all out. . .
No, my arms do NOT go "doing!" when you do that!!!! Helllpppppppp meeeeeee!!!!!
