We’ve all been there–Mama has errands to run and the crew has to tag along. I’m told that I’m blessed that I’m able to bring my children with me when we need to get out.
But yesterday my children really impressed me.
We’ve had company all week, our schedule was thrown off, plus the end of the week is always a little nuts, so yes, the day was insane.
We started off with an appointment at the chiropractor.
Then we drove about an hour to our favorite shop to trade in some cloth diapers for new ones that will fit my growing boy.
Somewhere we squeezed in lunch.
Then we rushed back to our neck of the woods for another appointment.
Around this time the children were getting restless and forgetting their manners.
An hour later, we were back in the van where we had to have a little chat about behavior in public places.
After everyone pulled themselves together (including mama), we came back to town where we had to take the van in for service. The children waited patiently for about 30 minutes in the seating area.
Immediately following, we had to drive to a 2nd service station to get a tire patched and waited another 45 minutes.
The day was busy but as I took a moment to breathe, I looked up at my children and realized that I am truly blessed.
It had been a long day, I was exhausted, the baby wanted to settle down for a nap, but my children were all busy with some kind of activity without complaint.
I even snapped a picture.
It doesn’t always go this smoothly, so I’m eager to know…
