To those who've asked: 

No, we don't have cornstarch fights everyday.
Yes, our home is a mess most of the time.
Yes, I do get cranky (especially in the afternoon.)
No, I don't enjoy every single minute of mothering.

But I do make a point of  
carpeing my kairoses. (<-- Read this.)

(Thanks Christina for the link!)

How wonderful to read what I have always felt but have been too cotton wool headed to put into words. Fabulous words.

You look beautiful.

Great words! And so true! Kairos!

I am the kind of an old lady who does not remember a lot of the time kids were young. I thought my memory has done me a nasty trick in that respect but maybe I am the lucky one... I don't remember how awful it sometimes was, I just remember some wonderful moments.

After reading the Carpe Diem-post I have been trying really hard to spot the Kairoses every day, and I have to admit there has been a few;) Thank goodness..

Adorable pic! How did you take those pictures of you and Sisi? Jonni took it or a timer? I have tons of pics of Esko and Liana and only few ones of me and her (Esko not home when sun is shining neither has interest to capture a good one).

YC, just the old trick: one long arm holds the camera!
