The following pictures were taken by Porter from my phone. He knows he's not allowed to mess around on my phone, but we were in a rush to pick up Eli from preschool, and as long as he sat still I let him have it.
Normally he takes a million pictures of carpet fuzz, or even more of his double chin if it's in selfie mode, but this time he got me.
Right now, this is motherhood for me. Clothing the boys. Washing the boys. Feeding the boys. Ferrying the boys. Listening to endless stories and comments. Teaching, disciplining, and being taught in turn. Comforting, snuggling, and wiping bums. I often feel so dang boring because this is what I do, but it's hard to communicate the satisfaction and joy and the agony and frustration of it all.
Sometimes I feel like being Zach's wife and Eli and Porter's mom has consumed my life, but I wouldn't trade it for anything. I think I'll let Porter have my phone more often.
