The ups and downs of parenting

Not a crafty or DIY or a recipe  post today...but this is my life.

So, if someone asked you the top five worst and top five best things about parenting, what would they be? I'm potty training my 2 year old this week and that would be one of the top worst for me. Who doesn't hate doing it?! It's not fun! For anyone involved! The poor kids have no clue bc up until now, using the diaper as their toilet was perfectly acceptable and then all of the sudden, it's not anymore. For me, this means LONG draining days of unending patience, encouragement, energy, clean up, and being positive. And then dreaming of nap time snd bedtime all the

So here are my top fives!
Some of my Worst:
1-potty training
2-cleaning up puke (ESP in the middle of the night)
3-Bedtime for them and sleepless nights for me
4-constant dishes, laundry, picking up, cooking and doing it all over and over and over
5-hearing someone yell the word "Mo-om!" Over and over.

Some of my Best:
2-hearing the laughter of my kids
3-love and snuggles
4-their bedtime lol
5-hearing the word "Mom" over and over

They're so worth it. I have to say I have lots more I can list on my best list than my worst still too! :) love them! (But will be glad when potty training is done on this, my fifth, child.

Next weeks agenda: Lots of crafting and posts! Get ready! :)
