I am in a chaotic stage of parenting right now. It seems we are in a new stage that is not responding to my normal “go-to” disciplines. Out in public, I have recently been told multiple times, “Wow, you’ve got your hands full”. Translation: “Wow, your kids are totally out of control”.
So we will take the good with the bad, rejoicing in the blessed moments that are inexplicably sweet.
Setting the scene: We walked down the path, through the woods to watch the tractors in the field. The Little’s obsession with long hair has continued and they commonly ask me to “braid” their “hair”. You need to know that the whole time this was happening, they were singing “Beauty and the Beast”.
They forgot to watch the tractors as excitement over the field of “flowers” overcame them.
“Tale as old as time…
Both a little scared, neither one prepared…
Beauty and the Beast.”
Yes, this is a moment we can do again. :)
