Little Gems, When I Least Expect It

This has been a long week. Aside from being insanely hormonally challenged, it seems like I’ve had an especially rough few nights of sleep. I’m crabby. And I’m tired. And I’m hot. It is not a good combination.

My fuse is short, my sense of humor is missing, and my family is paying the price.

At some point, we all knew something had to give, but none of us knew exactly what it was going to be that was going to push me over the edge. And no one knew if it was going to be a good thing, or a bad thing. There was a 50/50 chance that I’d either lose my mind completely or a switch would flip and the world would right itself.

Today, those moments arrived.

Thankfully, the hormonal challenges fixed themselves, as they are won’t to do. That helped immensely. And then, this afternoon, as I was looking for a photo on my phone, I came across a video that my son had taken of himself. This isn’t an odd occurrence, it’s something he does on a fairly regular basis. But for some reason, the  frame images that were featured at the top of the still image of the video caught my eye and made me laugh out loud.

And just like that, I was reminded that my kids are awesome and, even though things aren’t always perfect, they’re always (well, almost always) entertaining.

Now I just have my fingers crossed that I get some sleep tonight.
