things-don't-suck-as-much-as-i-thought thursday - third edition


Peace, quiet and brotherly love. It's a good thing. It is also a few and far between thing. As a Mom and a big sister, I get that, I really do. I just can't stand it most days. The nonstop bickering and fighting over every small minute detail of every frickin' thing!!! Whoops... this is supposed to be things I am thankful for. What was it again?? Oh yeah, peace and brotherly love. Yes, yes, now there is a good thing. It's those times I just sit back and smile. I remember why I stepped into the crazy ring of parenting. For these ever so tiny glimpses at brotherly bonding. Now if I could just burn this image into my retinas, life would be almost perfect!

Be sure to check out all the love floating around the blog-o-shpere today. In fact, join in! You'll be happy you did!

Doesn't seeing moments like these--or overhearing them telling each other "I love you"--make it all worth it? So sweet!

I couldn't agree more that we are given these moments to encourage us to stick it out in the "ring of parenting"

Love the picture...

Brotherly love, can be similar to all sibling love. Great picture.

I can totally relate to this.
Thank goodness you took a picture!

Looks like Ben 10 is on TV! Ben 10 is reason enough for a cease-fire.

Hi! I SO owe you some comment love! I'm still trying to catch up after being out with eye strain (which is still bothering me a bit so I can't be online long), and I started a work gig that's keeping me offline for pretty much the whole day. Anyway... adorable photo! What sweet boys!

I have boys as well and while they can antagonize and drive each other up a wall it is sweet to see how they look out for each other more and more as they get older! Thanks for sharing- your kids are adorable :-)

I love moments like that. Moments that you realize how much they love each other, even if it's only 15 minute later that they're tackling each other.

They look like such little angels.
