What I Want Most...

What I want most changes by the day; sometimes it changes by the hour or even by the minute.

What I want most...right now...is chocolate. My mouth is watering as I'm licking my lips. I've had chocolate ice cream every night this week...the same as I had every night when I was pregnant with #4...which led to a mere 50 pound weight gain. I shouldn't have some this late at night, but I'll probably cave and just go and get the ice cream, because sometimes I'm weak like that.

What I wanted most...this evening...was for the kids to just brush their teeth without having to be told TEN times...I counted, I really did, and by the tenth time, I raised my voice...and then I wanted to not feel guilty for raising my voice as Jacob wrapped his arms around my waist and said, I love you, Mama...gets me every time.

What I wanted most...this morning...was sleep...as was obvious because I didn't hear my alarm go off at 5:15 for my usual morning run.

What I want most...when the kids are fighting...is to not have to be the referee...Figure it out yourselves...which ALWAYS leads to tears, screaming, and sometimes punching, slapping, and various wrestling moves. I guess I'll continue to wear the black-and-white stripes a little longer.

What I want most...for my children...is peace and happiness as we navigate our way through childhood; I want my children to always feel important and wanted and loved like no other.

What I want most...I usually get...I'm pretty persistent like that.

And yes, I just finished my extra large bowl of chocolate ice cream...I told you I was weak.


This week's prompt is all about character development.
                                We'd like you to write about what your character wants most.

*If you couldn't figure it out...I'M THE CHARACTER.
