Last night as I am laying in bed -wide awake at around 1AM because I am a total insomniac- I came to a serious realization about my next 18 or so years as a mother.
What is this deep realization you ask? Let's go back to me laying in bed at 1AM, I am listening to, not one or two of my boys snoring, but ALL THREE (that's two little boys and one really big one). As I am thinking, "No wonder I can't sleep", rrrrrrriiiippp! One of them (I'm pretty sure the smallest one) rips the SMELLIEST fart I have ever had the privilege of being "dutch-ovened" by.
Oh yeah! It was rank!
So, this is my realization... This little five minutes in bed is just a snapshot of my next 18 years as the only girl in the house isn't it??? I am living with the noisiest, smelliest creatures on this planet!
You know what else I realized at that moment? That I was smiling through all of this. That I loved it! I loved the chaos, the stink, and the mess that is goes hand in hand with raising two crazy little boys (and having a husband who might as well be 5 when he gets going with the two of them!).

I wouldn't trade this loud, stinky crew for anything in the world!
