~ Crazy Momma ~

Well, I'm officially out of the running for the "Mother of the Year " awards, and its only 7 days into the new year!
Considering I was chasing my two boys around the kitchen like a raving lunatic with a hockey stick yesterday I might have a chance at the "Loony Bin" mom awards.
How did all this begin you might ask?
While the boys were having a short school break, I was doing laundry and changing the toddlers bum. I hear a loud crash from my family room and proceed to run to see what treasured decorative thing has been added to the list of things broken in my house!
It was a glass vase on the fireplace mantle, nothing expensive because well who owns expensive things when they have a houseful of boys?!
When I saw my two guilty boys holding hockey sticks yet again in my living room, I went ballistic!
I grabbed the hockey stick out of the younger boys hand and proceeded to chase my boys into the kitchen with it like a mad woman.
They were laughing at me. I'm not sure if it was the foaming at the mouth I was doing or the huge vein pooping out of my forehead that spurred them on.
Either way I was swinging and they were dodging! I obviously tired out quicker. The toddler thought it was a game probably because of the squeals of amusement out of his big brothers mouths.
Apparently I was the only one who was serious about the whole thing. After I calmed down I promptly dished out their discipline for playing hockey in the living room which had already been forbidden. I now am the proud, temporary owner of 2 beautiful hockey sticks and I have 2 very sparkly toilets.
Later on in the afternoon when I was cuddled up on the couch with them reading our history book , I humbly apologized for losing my temper. Being the very sweet boys that they are, they forgave me. My 9 yr. old looked at me and said "Momma remember those verses you told me the other day again from proverbs?" " Love covers over a multitude of sins, and a fool allows himself to get angry, but a wise person keeps themself under control."
Yes, ahem...I remember.
Good thing Jesus forgives mommas too.

So that poem I posted two days ago proved to be true yet again.
Humorously, I watched my two yr. old chasing my two girls through the kitchen with his mini-stick until he was promptly apprehended.
Um...er...not sure where he got that from...

Really enjoyed reading this one! hee hee! Isn't it fun to, when you are not "after those boys" for something they did wrong, to just run after them, inside or outside, just for the fun of it. They are usually pleasantly surprised when they see that "mommy" can also run quite fast! ;o) God bless you! ~ KASA ~

Very true Kathy! My kids absolutely love it when I chase them around! One of their favorite things in the summer outside is tag with a large,foam noodle. They tire out Daddy and I rather quickly!
