"Come what may, and love it!......Yet in spite of discouragement and adversity, those who are happiest seem to have a way of learning from difficult times, becoming stronger, wiser, and happier as a result." ~ Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin

Sometimes everyone in our family makes mistakes.

After Hannah had thrown up on the freshly cleaned carpet and
after I cleaned up the puke off the carpet, off the kitchen floor,  off the clothes and off the sink and 
after Noah had been crying for an hour because he didn't want to eat his dinner and
after I was looking at and folding some of the mound of clothing on my bed and
after I sent Noah to his room crying and
after Hannah climb in Noah's chair ate ALL his dinner (round 2 for her) and then spilled water all over her clothes (after the bath)...

I said , "Asher, I just can't do it anymore."
Asher: what?
me: be a mom
Asher: why? you just get tired?
me: yes, sometimes.
Asher: well, you take care of us.
me: do you think I'm a good mom?
Asher: Yes, sometimes everyone in our family makes mistakes.
me: yes, that's true. Guess I'll be your mom forever.
Asher: ok

-Asher, almost 4
