I’m not a saver of things (you might have figured that out about me by now) but a stumbled across a random note to myself about the wonderful variety of the tasks/joys of motherhood. On 8/19/2007 I did the following mom things:
~sewed an antler back on Larry the stuffed moose
~shampooed for head lice (as I recall, that was the horrible summer of head lice)
~did three loads of laundry
~hugged for the first time the woman who became my daughter in law last summer (XOXOXXO, Brittany)
~gave a son $14 worth or chores to do so he could buy something that he really wanted.
Just an average, wonderful, challenging day.
