Tender Mommy Moments

You know, it is very rare that a mommy gets to be in the picture but last night proved to be the perfect moment for mommy to get included. Ian normally sits on the couch for his milk & the girls in their bouncy chairs (yes, the same ones we have had since they were born). Last night was special. All 3 wanted to sit on MY lap and, as mommies do, I accommodated all 3.



Don't hate. Yes, we still give the girls milk in a bottle. No, we aren't worried about their teeth. They get brushed every night. We also don't put them to bed w/ the bottle. They finish it at least 30 minutes before going to bed. Why am I even justifying it? Never mind.

Back to the point. This was definitely a moment to remember for this mommy. It is not common for all 3 to sit contently in my lap at one time w/o some shoving, pushing or arguing going on. So, yeah. This is mommy's tender moment <3.

That is so incredibly sweet. I know I love moments when both Erin and Patrick will sit on my lap without arguing. Such sweet pictures.

((and who cares about the bottles of milk?))

That is so sweet :) You don't need to justify anything...you're their mommy and you make the rules.

THANK YOU re: the bottle thing! I have a 14-month-old who still uses a bottle, and people act like I'm killing her by letting her use it!

Cracking up at the bottle paragraph because we have the same thing going on at my house, and the nursing, and the paci and yes opinions are like a$$ holes, everyone has them and likes to share them with us mommies. Grrr!
