My Kids are Dorks

As I struggle to survive the summer with three brats at home, I am trying my hardest to appreciate the small things.
Even when the boys call their sister to the kitchen so they can run and take her seat on the sofa.
Even when my daughter calls her brothers "ball sac" just because they giggle.
The easy going routines.
The day trips.
The laughter.
The fights.
The silliness.
The attitudes.
The things they say/do as each child tries to figure out who they are in this huge, unpredictable world.

I am trying.
Struggling.
Enjoying

Because I know all of these little moments will be big moments as I remember them in the years to come.

I love that even though my boys fight every flippin' minute of the day, they are still the best of friends.

I love that they love to be silly and their funny personalities are noticed by everyone around them.

I love being the Mom to these two goofs.

But I could do without the attitudes.
Hold me as I try to survive the next 10 years.

I can totally relate. I have two boys, age 13 and 14, who make it a point to get on each other's nerves. But if anyone so much as looks at them wrong, they've got each other's backs.

Oh I love this! And I was giggling reading that they call their sister to the kitchen to take her seat on the sofa - Princess Nagger does that to Little Dude. ;) LOVE all the shots! :)

It will be so interesting to watch their relationship progress as they get older.

Hahah! I totally read this because of the title. They sound like a ton of fun! What is the age difference? They look like they'll be best friends for life.

Boys... But I've learned that they give the best hugs.
