Sometimes as a parent, you lose a battle... or two... or three...
You look in the backseat while driving because your children are quiet.... only to find that the youngest has colored all over her legs. OH!....and she unbuckled her seatbelt too.
Your child rides home in the car naked... just because... Or maybe it's because she didn't have that smile on her face a few minute prior when I tried to get her dress on... yeah. that.
Your children pour ice cold water over your families' feet for a good half hour, because it diverted their attention from their "non sharing with my sister" crying ways....
The snuggles? Ohhhh the snuggles make your heart melt. The relaxing time? Makes everything all better.
They "shake it baby!" and sing and dance for all your neighbors to see. You aren't embarrassed one bit. Just proud of how cute they are and how much their "awesome dance moves" resemble yours :)
They love you more than anything. They ask for hugs. And kisses. And snuggles. And tell you that you are their best friend.
