I am having a guilty day today.

You know the one where wake up and can't stop beating yourself up for all the things your NOT getting done. Allowing television for a little too long. Staying in pajamas until well after lunch. Baking cookies because they sound good to you. Worrying about every last little thing that you have no control over. Letting the house, the sink, the laundry pile up.

And then I catch a glimpse of their heart and the truth that all they really want is to be tickled and read to and to eat cookies too with you in pajamas no care of a messy house only your full attention.

And I stop feeling guilty and decide to feel thankful that I get to be a part of their lives.

And eat another cookie.

I am a lucky Mama.
