I Pray That Some Day You Will Understand

When you have kids hanging on you and bored all summer, when they come up and read over your shoulder, when your belly is tight and you can't bend over because your pregnant, when your two year old is grunting and crying at you all the time because he can't talk yet, when your hormones are all over the place and your spouse is out of work. I hope you understand how much I have always truly loved you. And, even when I snap and get angry at you for silly reasons, like making the spaghetti wrong, I still think you are the most wonderful daughter I could ever have. I hope you will know that you are such a fantastic kid that when you do something wrong it totally throws me off but it doesn't mean I don't still think you're amazing. I hope you understand and appreciate making kids do chores and you know why we do this. Most of all I hope you have wonderful kiddos like I've been blessed with because you guys are great and, even though I'm moody and snappy right now, I still think that all the time and brag about it to everyone who will listen.

That's exactly what I was saying to my kids today, and yesterday, and a week ago...

You are blessed with great kids.

It's always nice to really tell your kids how much they mean to you. And be completely honest! They will appreciate it later.

I think I may need to copy and paste this and give it to my kids someday. I know just what you mean!

so well written. I feel the same way all the time and i'm sure it will just intensify as they get older.
