Sometimes mommies get cranky. Sometimes mommies aren't all the way awake. Sometimes mommies would rather sit at home than do something fun.

Sometimes I cringe at the suggestion of a trip to the beach. Sometimes all I think about is the mess. The sand will get everywhere. It takes forever to get sand out of Lion's hair.

Sometimes I say no. Sometimes I miss out on the beautiful moments.

Sometimes I don't. Sometimes saying yes is the most important thing. Sometimes letting go is totally worth it.

Sometimes life is perfect.

how true is your post!! I always feel better after saying yes though and dealing with the mess later...we should have some messy days with the kiddos!

Thank you for posting this. I feel the same way and need all the motivation I can get for saying yes!

Great post. The mess can be a big deterrent but after you say yes, you (usually) appreciate the moments of fun.
