Spring Break day 2- the quiet moments.

Today was just a relaxed day. not a ton on the agenda.

The girls had slept over at grandma Jones' and I took the boys over at 11 so they could all swim in her heated pool.

After we got home the kids played and i did exciting things like the dishes and laundry.

I looked out the window a little later and saw Hope, dancing outside with the umbrella. I had to sneak a picture.

she had on a white dress up dress on over her swimsuit, pink ballet flats and a fuchsia purse.

this is my baby girl. she's almost 8. i can't believe it.

later i made green chile chicken enchiladas for dinner and while people were still setting the table Patriot climbed up and got into the sour cream. we had to take a picture or two. All of us just had to smile and laugh.

Today while i was sitting there watching the kids fighting in the pool with my mom i asked her why she never told me being a mom was so hard. she made it look so easy.  she just laughed at me.

it's the quiet moments.

I love this post, and that photo of Hope should be in a magazine. It is fantastic! We are having a quiet spring break (week one). The girls are not off the same week *sadface*

What a sweet post! Adorable pictures :) Quiet moments are always the best (they are quiet! haha).

I wish my mom would have warned me how hard being a mom was.. She, too, made it look so easy.

My mom made it look easy too. Hope is darling and Riot is hilarious, we would have a good time laughing at that, as I can see that happening in the near future, lol.

It IS hard, isn't it?! I never imagined the struggles when I looked forward to being a mom. I love my children, but it sure is HARD. My little girl (not the littlest, but one I think of as little still) is turning 8 next week.
