Captain Jack Sparrow

My little S sure keeps me on my toes. I never know what he's going to say or do next. I love the boy to death but he is a handful. He has been especially ornery lately. I don't know if it's because school is out and he's been staying up late and we don't really have a routine right now therefore he's extra tired and extra grumpy. Or if it's because he's a boy and just extra active ALL the time. I hate getting after him, and yet I want him to know his limits. Motherhood is a very difficult thing, the most difficult thing I've ever done. However it's also the most rewarding too. If only there were a handbook with solutions to problems such as this. And then here's the big problem: he's calling names, or jumping off the furniture, or spilling things, or hitting, or, or, or, and then I look at him and he's just so dang cute. How can I be mad at a face like that for too long. Oh, how he drives me crazy but still I love him.

Motherhood really is difficult; yet rewarding. He's a good lookin kid!

I know what yo mean. I have three little boys just like that! Motherhood is extremely difficult and not for the faint hearted. My sister-in-law works out of the home and that has become her rest time. Homemaking is the hardest job in the world, but the best and the pay comes all at once, several years from now, when we look at our grown children and know we did all we could to help them have good lives.

I've got a boy that sound a lot like him! Lots of work, but well worth it.
