mom tank

"What I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it." Author Unknown

This week has started out a bit emotional {dare I say crabby~Gasp!}
There is this wonderful love tank in life, It's in constant variation, full to empty and full again.

Today I had to leave work a little early to meet Cohen getting off the bus
(Dad {grandpa} had a full hip replacement today and thus was not our wonderful regular,
Cohen's buddy, bus greeter today)

The evening started a little shaky shall we say,
 which ended in tears and little heart to heart with my tender and loving little Cohen and his mom.

The great thing about life is that it can turn on ya at anytime and the evening ended so perfectly.
{Lil dance off with Just Dance kids on the wii}  Sorry Curtains are closed for that one!

While the kids were in the bath we played "tell everyone 2 things you love about them."

Cohen said "I'll go first"  "I love when we get to play outside mom and Mom I love that you came home and we got all evening and I love to snuggle."
I said what about Kadence, what do you love about her "I love that we play together and she thinks I'm so big."

When I asked Kadence she said
"da da do da"
then she stuck her tongue out.
I like to translate that to "gee you are the best mom and brother ever! I am so lucky"
I said Kadence can you tell Cohen
"I love you Cohen" and she said
"poo poo butt"
Which I am sure means "I love you Cohen" right?!"

It did lead to a bathroom full of laughter as Cohen thought it was the funniest thing he had ever heard,
so maybe she knew exactly what he needed to fill his love tank again.
{I'm gonna have my hands full with that girl...}
but for tonight
They filled my mom tank.
Mom tank is full again.
Thanks Kids!
