Is There Anything Better?

Today's perfection:

Jackson, Maya and Macie bustling around the kitchen putting away their lunch dishes as quickly as they can. The conversation consists of the amazing creatures that will transform outside in mere moments as their "shapeshifting" begins. As I start to load the dishes into the dishwasher Jackson begins to belt out his rendition of "We All Live In a Yellow Submarine" and soon we are all singing at the top of our lungs.

The moment is perfect.

Yes, there are about 50 loads of laundry waiting for me upstairs, sheetless beds needing to be covered, crumbs all over the floor because our amazing "vacuum" dog has decided he would rather munch on ice than crumbs, 4 different places I need to be to tonight (all at one time, of course!), filing and organizing that NEEDS to be done, I'm already about four hours behind for the day and dinner really should be an actuality at this time rather than a dream, but for now the moment is perfect.

I can say in all honesty that it doesn't get better than this and I am truly grateful!

Thank you, thank you, thank you honey for making it possible for me to have such perfect moments as this!

That is awesome Jamie. I'm glad you know the true meaning of happiness is not a perfectl clean house, but enjoying the moment with your children.

Thanks for making those great cookies your husband brought over. I'll have to get the recipe- seriously- Luke doesn't like cinnamon rolls, but loved those. We all did, actually!
