It's the Little Things | Our Afternoons Outside

Wednesday, April 1, 2015

The weather is finally beautiful around here. We've finally had a break from the rain and the sun has been shining since the weekend! The kids and I have been spending our time outside after their afternoon naps.
I have been struggling a bit with Wyatt during the day. He's testing me in ways I never thought I'd be tested. He gets mad about everything. EVERYTHING. And of course it doesn't make things any better when he can't actually verbalize what he wants or what's wrong. I'm worn out by the end of the day and usually feeling bad about how our day has gone.
 We have been spending a lot of time outside. That's where he's usually at his happiest. He eats popsicles, drives his gator, blows bubbles, and swings. I don't have to spend time telling him "no" or to "stop doing that". He can just be. We laugh and run and play.
 Of course he also has to give Sissy some attention. She really just demands it. I love seeing her smile at him and just sit and watch him. She loves him so much.
I'm thankful for the fun that we are able to have together. I cherish these moments with them and I use them as reminders when those bad moments have me down.
