This is the cutest thing ever!  I watched it twice and cried each time.  I'm such a sap but it's just so fun and sweet.  I love LOVE...I wish it for everyone.  :)

Life with kids is just funny

The other day we were at soccer practice for my 5 year old and as they were doing roll call, he got up to adjust his shorts and said almost to himself "sometimes my clothes get stuck in my private parts."  Suddenly there was silence.  I think all anyone heard was "my private parts."  The coach said "what?"  He repeated much louder this time "SOMETIMES MY CLOTHES GET STUCK IN MY PRIVATE PARTS!!"  I was mortified and thought it was hilarious at the same time.  The adults around the kids were trying to hold back their laughter but also kind of embarrassment for me and him.  My husband was far away so he didn't hear.  When I told him he almost fell over laughing.  Life is funny!

Forgive yourself for not being perfect.  That's one of the things I need to do a better job of...forgiveness.  I try so hard to be a good wife, mother, friend, daughter and sister.  But sometimes I fall short of where I want to be and it's so hard not beating myself up about it.

Wishing you had done things differently is not the answer.  Recognize where you failed, forgive yourself for your short comings and try to do better next time.

A mantra I need to remember.  :)
