What I Love...

I know it’s been months since I’ve posted anything, but it has been sooo hectic.  Wedding, injuries, jobs, holidays, and parenting, you know the usual stuff that is capable of consuming you whole when you least expect it.  However, it has been a great time being with my family while things have been tough.  And while surfing around through blogosphere I’ve come across some rather inspiring blogs about mothers.  So I thought for my first post, back since FOREVER ago, I would dedicate it to my daughters.

5 Things I  LOVE About Being a  MOM

*  That at times as much as I want them to be tiny again, in the same breath I cannot wait to see what they become when they are big.
*  That I get to watch them grow just a little each day in inches, intellect, through inspiration.
* Being able to be a little girl again with my little girls.  It’s fun to make EVERYTHING just perfectly pretty.
* The kisses, hugs, cuddles, and endless amounts of understanding and acceptance my girls have.
* The laughing, the conversations, and the just plain silliness.

5 Things I  LEARNED About Being a  MOM

1. Waking up to a kid climbing in your bed to snuggle (even with the morning breath) is way better than waking up to the sound of your alarm clock.
2. Mom’s aren’t perfect, and sometimes seeing how you should have been raised is a much better gauge on how to raise your children than how you were raised.
3. There is never enough time in the day to get everything done, but its ok to just stop and have an impromptu dance party in the living room.  It feels just as good as an empty To Do list.
4. When posing the girls for pictures, the ones where they start being goofy end up being much better than the ones in my head I intended on taking.
5. It’s okay to need time alone, and the girls really do understand.


  1. Oh how wonderful! still holds true no matter how old they are. Sececond go around for me with a teenager and it still applies!
    Going to follow your adventure in blogland~I loved the baked crayons and I can see me doing this for a party!


  2. Thank you! I'm glad to have another follower. :) The crayons were a blast! If I could get enough of them gathered up I would make enough to give out in my girls' class as gifts.
