We live in a quiet little town with our two children, one dog and 1.75 jobs. We lead a fairly simple life. With that said, I’m not sure why I can’t find time to document our existence here. We’re no busier than the average family. I think I just manage my time poorly because I somehow feel like I meet myself coming and going. Someday I’ll get better at this. In the meantime, I’ve made this my screensaver at work. It reminds me that at the end of each day my kids look peaceful and relatively happy.

This was taken on our summer vacation to Dallas. The boys shared a bed and, quite frankly, it didn’t go that well. At some point during each night we were in our hotel room I was awakened by them YELLING at one another about who had more blankets and who was hogging mattress space. Yet, early one morning, mere hours after a 3 a.m. tussle that could have woken the neighbors, we found this.

It makes me happy.

Precious! Don't they look like angels when they're sleeping???? And you really will look back on this time at some point as the "good old days." So don't beat yourself up over what you feel is not always time well spent--just enjoy the ride!

So funny that I read this blog after posting a picture on Facebook of Connor and Cooper in a similar situation last night! I feel the same way, there is just never enough time which I have had to learn the hard way these past couple of years :-(
