A few sweet and gentle candid photos of mommies and their babes. I try and embrace these type of special moments with my boys. However, more often than not, I find myself scolding rather than cherishing them. I feel like a referee and not a mom. Barking for a “time-out”, pointing “you’re being a bad boy”, or throwing two arms in the air “stop being mean”! Tearing limbs off of each other! I often feel defeated and I can never reign in my terrible two year old. So I just give in to that cookie. Skip brushing those teeth. Leave the toys on the floor. Because at the end of the day, I have to come to grips that I am not a referee. I am a mom and I have to learn to let the crazy go and foster these moments.
