The View

Do you ever catch yourself in the kitchen, hustling like a crazy person to finish supper before the evening activities begin, then turn around and see a counter-full of kids and think to yourself,

"Woah, I have four kids."

Ok, so maybe not four, but the number doesn't really matter, does it?

I know, I know. I see this view every single day. Multiple times a day. Actually, the whole herd follows me wherever I go... in one room and out the other. To the toilet, and beyond. And in case you were slightly concerned, yes, I know, I've had four kids for quite a while now. I haven't completely lost it. Yet.

But this time, no one was fighting, whining or throwing food.

Not that my kids do that or anything.

In fact, they were being so cordial that I almost forgot they were sitting there. Miracles do happen. About 10 seconds went by before someone actually spotted me staring at them. It was a rare moment and definitely worth taking in.

I giggled inside, wondering if Tyler really knew what he was in for all those years ago.

I watched them interact, and couldn't imagine my life with one less.

I witnessed love shown with each Veggie Straw Tess shared Lady and the Tramp style.

And I decided that I need to stop more often, and take in...

the view.
