I wouldn't change a thing

I always see the sunrise.
I usually eat standing up.
I take quick showers while my kids watch tv.
I plan my days around nap time.
I order from the menu at restaurants based on what I think my kids will eat off of my plate.
I wear sweats most days at home.
I bribe my kids while grocery shopping in Walmart.

When things seem out of control, I try to savor the moment.
My laundry is never done.
At 6PM I start a countdown to bed time.
My heart leaps when my kids say something innocent and meaningful.
I am a stay at home mom.
I wouldn't change a thing.
