I am exhausted. It is the first day of Spring Break and I already have sleep deprivation! It has been a constant revolving door of boys at my house and I wouldn't have it any other way! Friday night sleepovers lead to Saturday at the indoor pool; throw in a few games of bowling and a day out at the movies followed by yet another sleepover.
I woke last night to my oldest Expat and his friend trying ever so quietly to take a mattress up two flights of stairs. I woke up early this morning to make pancakes and bacon, and I sit now and listen to hoops being played and laughter filling my house. I wouldn't change this for the world!
I want to be the house that the kids come to! I will cook for them, listen to them and cart them around to where they need to go. For, far too quickly it is over and all I will be left with is the quiet and my memories of these days.
This video is an oldie but a goodie. I watched and tears rolled down my face, for I realized that these days are truly "gifts" that I wouldn't change for the world!
