I'm Grateful for My Kids...Really...I am. Wha?!

So I was charged with the task of creating a video post talking about what I am grateful for in my life. Yesterday was crazy. I woke up late and rushed around the rest of the day trying to make up for it. I don't have video skills. I knew there was no way I was going to edit up some fantastic piece in one day and properly give tribute to all of the things I'm grateful for.

But I had a video camera.

And of course I had my kids (they're always hanging around).

What a brilliant idea! I'll film my kids being sweet and loving and talk about how much they've changed my life...enriched it.

They were more interested in the cat.*

I've developed an enhanced sense of humor since having kids (I had to). I think that's pretty cool.

And yes that was my underwear you saw flying behind my head. So much for the folded clothes--and my dignity.

*No children were seriously injured in the making of this video and the cat had already hidden herself far away from the crazies. Though head-butted by his younger brother, my middle son has his mother's hard head and popped up unscathed just moments later.

You're lucky you didn't get a broken nose in the process. Well done!

I just kept laughing at the heaping pile of laundry you were using as a backrest. My hero.

Oh, and I'm DC bound the weekend of October 10th. Mark your calendar and tell your tots you need an hour away from little league/soccer/etc to hang with the girls.

That made me smile and laugh.

And I so get it.
