C'est la Vie: More Reasons To Love My Kids

I wasn't excited to make dinner tonight, so I looked into the refrigerator and prayed for a vision. I spotted a bag of English Muffins, spaghetti sauce, shredded cheese, pepperoni - BINGO! Mini pizzas it is. The best part? My kids were totally excited! Just one more reason to love my kids: dinner can be boxed mac and cheese, PB&J, rolled up lunch meat and cheese, even scrambled eggs and toast and they are happy.

You've heard me say we had a rough start to the week, so I thought I'd take a few moments to remember this and other reasons to love my kids.
They sometimes play in their room in the morning instead of getting me up at the crack of dawn.
They like to help in the kitchen.
They will go out to get the paper in the morning when I'm still in my PJ's and don't want the neighbors to see.
They know how to unload the dishwasher.
They remind me of places I've told them we need to go (meanwhile, I've forgotten).
They keep me entertained everyday with their singing, dancing, and artwork.
They tell me I'm good at sports even though I'm really not.
They love me... even when I'm not the mom I'd like to be.

Moms, let's never forget what a blessing it is to be called "mommy." What are the things you love most about your kids?

Mom Spot: Progressive Pioneer

Here is another blog I've come across in recent weeks. She has gorgeous pictures and her post yesterday was truly fantastic.

"Maine is pretty rainy in the spring.  And I lived in Oregon for awhile and it defines rainy.  So, a little rain rarely puts me in a gray mood.  In fact, this rainy, rainy spring we've been having here in Utah has actually made me feel quite cheerful!  Each rainy day has felt like something of a celebration."

Butterfly Pavilion

Of all the child-focused exhibits I wish I could visit weekly, Butterfly Pavilion is number one. I could spend hours in the rainforest-like room where butterflies dance through the air, lush vegetation sprawls from every corner, and a delightful assortment of other tropical animals make their home. You can meet Rosie, the resident tarantula and stroke a horseshoe crab as a wonderful side-light to your Pavilion trip. (Is there a child's birthday in your future? The Butterfly Pavilion is available for parties!)


The Sunset Stroll, a monthly event, gives you a more exclusive tour where you will see activities not seen during the daylight hours. A reservation is necessary. The Butterfly Pavilion is open seven days a week and summer is a great time to go! Schools are mostly finished with their field trips and you can walk the outdoor nature trail. Everyday, new butterflies are released between 12:30 and 3:30pm, and there are great spots to have lunch, so plan to make a day of it!
