motherhood has taught me...

~There will always, always be more crumbs.

~It is unwise to trust a toddler alone in the bathroom.

~The sight of a toddler and baby playing "together" is precious.

~It may not be worth it to change clothes, even after being baptized in baby spit-up.

~One can never be truly caught up on laundry.

~A cranky expression on a two-year-old's face can be downright adorable.

~It can be very pleasant to cook with one's son.

~It can be very unpleasant to toilet train.

~Three boys + four days of camping = a whole stinking lot of little boy laundry.

~Two boys + soccer season = a whole stinking lot of soccer-related activities.

~Love makes it possible to cuddle your baby in the middle of the night, even when her pajamas are coated in vomit.

~There's a lot to be said for lists.

~Because mine can truly be a thankless job,
I must do my work for Him alone.

~That is enough.

"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving."

-Colossians 3:23-24
