I thought it was having my kids...and tha tis big, relaly big...but then there are things that seem small, but aren't.

The other day my 5 yr old got pinched by another kid & he got REALLY angry & he said with gritted teeth "HEY!" and I almost steppe din thinking it might get ugly & instead (with gritted teeth) he said "Hands are for clapping & hands are for tickling & hands are for holding & hands are for high 5's - they are NEVER for hurting"..." So you want to give me a high 5 or something?" I wanted to laugh & & bust at the seems with pride. I could tell he really wanted to react, but instead he chose to do what he knew was right. I finally found out I am not ignored...even when it feels like it. I think having these boys will prove to me I might just be more proud of their accomplishments than I will ever be of my own. Is that even healthy? LOL
