Shattered Realities

I don't know how I've made it 2 years and 10 months without anything I truly love being ruined by my children, but it happened tonight. I didn't even know I loved this stupid bowl until it shattered on the floor. I wanted to yell, but that's not my style, so I just started crying. I no longer have an adorable, perfect for holding dip, red polka dot bowl. Oh well. Things are just things, right?

What beloved things have you lost to your children?

To My Beautiful Wife - A Post by Spencer

Lately I know a lot of attention has been on me because the things that I do are so visible. Your always saying how awesome I am for all the things that I do. Well, I think the whole world should know how awesome you are. How you have the energy to do all the incredible things you do I can't figure out. To go to school full time, mother full time, and still have all the energy in the world to scrapbook, and take the girls on bike rides, and clean and cook, and do the shopping, and get the garden ready... and a million other things. You are truly amazing. I could never hope for a better mother for my sweet angels than you. You're awesome because you do everything you do and never ask for anything in return, except for the occasional "medium sized" back rub. One day is hardly enough to show you how amazing you are, or to tell you all the ways you think that I am awesome are only because you are there cheering me on, encouraging me. I hope that someday Aliah and Inara understand what an incredible mother you truly are. I think they already suspect it. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! for all that you do! You...Are...Awesome. Happy Mothers Day Sweetheart.

Love, Spencer

I better go get started on breakfast.
