It's not always easy...

You ever have one of those weeks? We've been having one here, I'm afraid. One of those weeks where it's either been too hot or too rainy to go outside much. One of those weeks where the kids are going crazy and we're about to pull our hair out? Yeah. One of those. So to work through it a bit, I did this layout last night using some Queen & Co. fab flowers.

The journaling reads:

It's not always easy...
To be the parent
To have to enforce the rules

To be the responsible one

To set the boundaries
To be the example.

It's not always easy...
To be a child
To be the oldest brother

To behave
To do what's right
To listen

To learn

To grow up

But it's
always easy to love you.

Kelly,
Jamie just was saying this morning to a customer to look at your work because somehow you manage to make pink or girl colors work on your pages with your boys! And now I totally agree. Awesome! It rocks!!!
