Happiness is realizing your child is growing up to be an amazing person!! I won’t be modest, I think hands down I have awesome kids! Seriously, I know every mom says that but I think they are the real deal! So, that said we still have our moments and I always wonder if I am doing a good job on my part.
Well last night I was really tired, even more than usual because I had to take my migraine medicine earlier in the day and it seems to take a lot out of me usually. So, I thought I was on top of my game, it was 8:30pm and I was getting my girls to bed when my oldest daughter said, oh mom I forgot to empty my other bag, I have my smelly gym clothes in there and I need them clean for tomorrow. Trying not to let her see my disappointment I said ok, no problem I will get them done before I go to bed. So, I threw them into the washer and she yelled thanks, just fold them and put them on my computer for morning. The washer finished and I got the load into the dryer, got things ready for bed, but the dryer still wasn’t done. I told my son (my oldest kiddo) I am heading to bed a little early and he could stay up to his usual time, but then head to bed. So, all goodnight hugs were given and I was fast asleep.
The next thing I knew it was 3:30 am and my alarm was going off, this is my first time I get up in the day to give my daughter her first round of am meds (she takes multiple medications for her thyroid and parathyroid disease and they require specific spacing between making our schedule less than desirable most days). So, I got up gave meds and then headed to the dryer, I thought I would make sure gym clothes were dry, fold them and put them on her computer. Well, that is when I thought I was losing my mind! I could not find her gym clothes in the load-like anywhere! I thought wow you must be losing it, they cant just disappear!
Then I walked back into the kitchen to think for a minute and that is when I saw them, folded nicely on top of her computer?! I thought what, I know I was tired but I know I did not do this. I also knew it could not of been my husband who was currently down and out with stomach flu! So, I smiled for a minute and thought it had to be my son, how nice of him to this! I headed to lay down for a precise 1 more hour and 45 minutes of sleep before my alarm sounded again to get up and stay up for the day. As I laid back down I realized you know he has really grown up into an amazing, caring, wonderful person and I couldn’t be happier with that! Sometimes in a world full of chaos moments like this make you realize you did do something right, and he was listening and watching all along!
