There are rare moments in motherhood that seem perfect. It is a very rare occurrence when there are no kids crying or fighting through lunch battles or nursing or throwing something or sneaking out of there cribs when I can actually enjoy the day with my kids. I'm in that moment right now.
Owen and Eli just opened their Christmas presents last night since we travelled for the last 2+ weeks. They are putting together jigsaw puzzles with the skill of a five year old even though they aren't much more than two. They just assembled four twelve piece puzzles on their own, stopping after every matched piece to give me a high five. How cute is that?! They are talking to each other about what they are creating (a bus, a train, a race car and a fire engine) and they are helping each other find the right piece. Garrett is sitting in his bouncy seat watching all the action just smiling away and kicking his legs.
I was actually able to read the whole MOPS magazine and drink a whole cup of tea without reheating it while watching them!
I know that soon it will be lunchtime, they'll get bored with their puzzles, they'll escape like daredevils from their cribs and someone will start crying, but for now, I'm in heaven.
