not a super mom, but a blessed one

(Probably my favorite picture of these two, because it is just so them.)


Almost once a week I hear the question which, let's face it, really isn't a question, but more of a statement that the asker feels safer saying then, well, "Woman, you crazy!" That is, about once a week, I hear, "My, you have your hands full!" or "How do you do it?" or something similar. I smile and laugh and agree that it's crazy.


Because it is crazy. We're a ragamuffin crew. Char's crazy curls and her 10 steps ahead of us attitude. Cooper's pokey-little-puppy-pokiness that usually has him 10 steps behind us, just taking his time. And Callum's, well, Callum's chunky not-so-little chunkiness or his desire to stuff anything in his mouth at all times, usually requiring me to be in the middle of unstuffing his face. We're crazy.

But it's so good. I love this crazy. I love finally getting a spare moment to upload some pictures, look back through the past week and come upon these. I love their giggles, their shared jokes and crazy games of make-believe. I love their ragamuffiness. They are super. I am blessed.

Great post! Great photos! Great kids! Great mom! I want three.... Just don't have the balls to go through a c- section and post partum another two times. I'll pray about it, maybe that courage will come.:-)

Love, love, love all three. It doesn't take a super mom to care for God's gifts to you and Dan.
