Today I had a wiser older woman say to me, "Enjoy your kids". The way she said it and the way she looked at me pierced through right to the core. She is a smart and wonderful woman and I felt like she was looking right through me and knew that I was most definitely not enjoying them at this particular time.
It seems like no matter how many times I hear things like this, it just doesn't stick. I really try to enjoy them and live in the now. But then I get selfish and life happens and then blah. I wish "Future Brianna" could visit me and say something to make me understand.
For now it's 9:00 and kids keep getting out of bed. And I'm trying to enjoy them while they test my patience.
