I'm not sure why I chose today to be the day we make and decorate a few gingerbread cookies; The day I got little to no sleep and running on empty with a husband not around to help.. but I did.
I had to remind myself a few times to keep my cool.. just let it go, stop freaking out, just let them have fun..
admittedly it was not a good idea to do it tonight but it passed the time and most importantly the kids loved it, so I guess that's all that matters. Next time I hope to enjoy it with them, but now that it's over I realize it wasn't so bad.
with the exception of those tiny sprinkles that have managed to get everywhere and I still feel them on the bottom of my feet even though I swept the floor 5 times.
My kids can drive me crazy at times but man, they warm my heart more then I ever realized was possible.
I'm so lucky.
