A Day is a Bunch of Moments

Have you ever stopped and thought about how a day is really just a bunch of moments? For some reason, this thought occurred  to me this afternoon while I was doing this dishes. A bunch of individual good and bad moments......That is a day.
 Here are a few moments from our day:

The moment when I dressed Paisley and thought she looked too stink'n cute to not take her outside and take her pictures.

The moment I set her down outside to take the pictures and within half a second, she was belly crawling all through the yard. I couldn't get her to hold still for even a second and I couldn't even get her to look at me.

The moment I was way too frustrated about not being able to get good pictures and I realized that it was my stupid agenda and that I wasn't being realistic.
The moment when I saw Judah wearing his new rubber boots and I thought they were the coolest things ever. I didn't know I would ever be so excited about my son's rubber boots.

The moment when Judah asked me to sit in our rocking chair so he could push me and rock me. I closed my eyes and let him have fun pushing me while I relaxed.

The moment after naptime when I took Judah and Paisley outside and I let Judah ride his trike around our street.

The moment that I felt bothered that he prefers to push his trike with his feet and doesn't want to pedal.

The moment when I had to tell myself to be quiet and let him learn on his own.

The moment we were listening to loud celtic music while I was getting dinner ready and Judah was dancing.

The moment where I seriously wondered how many times a day I tell Judah to be gentle with Paisley.

The moment I sat out on the deck with them after dinner and let Paisley splash in the water table although it was cloudy and windy.

The moment I discovered that our sink is too small for our roasting pan to sit and soak. I could be super woman and wash it tonight but, I just can't. I am so done with chores and tomorrow I will be scrubbing.

What are some of the moments that created your day?


  1. Thank you for sharing your "moments" - they are each so precious. I love that you have those inner voice mommy conversations with yourself, too. :)

  2. You touch the hearts of moms, Angela, no matter the age of their children. Thanks for just being you and for sharing your life with us.

  3. Thank you, Ginger. That means a lot! Last night I started getting doubts in my mind that maybe my blogging is stupid and that I should stop. I need to remember that I'm writing for me and not for other people.
