It has been a long day and a long week and I am sure it will be a long weekend.
Sometimes I just stop and question myself as a parent. Like when my kids make poor decisions, I just wonder if it is my fault? If I failed to teach them some important thing that would have helped them to make a better decision? As my kids get older, I am just confronted more often with their flaws... like when Laina was a baby and a toddler, it was all new to me, and I thought everything she did and said was adorable (even if she was being a stinker). But as I become more seasoned as a parent, their foibles are less "cute" to me and more of a concern. I don't love them any less, just get disappointed when they aren't all that I had hoped I would teach them to be.
For my pictures tonight, here is Evelyn watering some plants with me. She really enjoyed helping me :)
Tomorrow is Laina's dance recital day, should be a busy and stressful day, but hopefully an enjoyable one too.
