It’s a beautiful day at the park. Rudy has just now begun to climb, slide, and explore on his own. As I breath it all in, my daughter runs to me yelling, “Mom! He’s cheating! He’s cheating on you!” Oh my! Who?! How?! Apparently, she found a little boy to play with. They were playing a Super Hero game of some kind. She was Iron Girl and he was, you guessed it, Iron Man. Somehow, he wasn’t following the rules they agreed on and she came running to me yelling words no woman wants to hear. He’s cheating on you.
If that wasn’t bad enough, the next morning “he” broke my heart. Yes, the heart that was all smiles at the park was broken into tiny little Syrup-Covered-Bisquick pieces. You see, I made pancakes for the kids that morning and at an attempt to be The Best Mommy in the World I made a heart shaped pancake, put it in the middle surrounded by cut up pieces.. my little rays of sunshine. They were heart themed sun pancakes.. Aren’t I sweet? I thought so.. until I hear this:
Abby: Mom! He broke your heart!
Zach: Yes! Yes I did. I broke it and chewed it and it was GOOD! You shouldn’t leave your heart just laying around on plates Mom!
As I mourn my broken heart, this morning Abby decided to be Sassy, Demanding, and Bossy. As soon as my feet touched the floor from my heavenly bed, she was all words and they went a little something like this:
I had it! I finally tell her, “Abby, I am NOT your slave! I am your Mother. You don’t tell me what to do, how to do it, or when to do it! I’m tired of your Sass and it’s going to stop right now! Do you understand?” With a look of innocence and a smirky smile she says, “Mom. I don’t even know what a slave is.”
*Throws hands in the air* I give up. Oh, the cruelty my heart goes through each day with these children. Broken hearts, cheating escapades, and slave owning. It’s funny how my children break my heart and I love them that much more with the tiny little pieces.
