I’ve realized that becoming a mom is hard, but it becomes a lot easier if you stop trying to be a perfect mom. Just enjoy being the mom you are. Yes, motherhood is hard, but with a little help, we can all figure it out.
We had an eventful weekend. Not only was it Easter, but we also hosted Desirae’s first birthday party! We had a lot of fun squeezing our family and friends into our tiny little townhouse. As I’m writing, I’m looking around deciding how I want to handle the party aftermath. My goal today, besides writing this… Continue reading Easter and a Birthday Party
It’s Friday! Time to close up the week and get ready for Easter weekend. My husband gets home earlier then usual on Fridays, so they are generally short days for me. I usually try to have everything finished around the house before he gets home so we can all enjoy the weekend together. But I’ve got a LOT to do today! Not only am I prepping for Easter, but I’m also getting ready for Desirae’s first birthday party! I can’t wait to celebrate her birthday with family and friends tomorrow. It’s hard to believe that she is one already. Where has the time gone?
Before I go scrub down the bathroom, I want to leave this video with you. A good friend of mine, who is new to the moms club, showed me this yesterday, and it’s HILARIOUS. I knew I had to share it with all of you. While you laugh at this video, I am going to finish cleaning the house and go pick up a birthday cake!
Have a great weekend and a Happy Easter!
I was nominated for my first blog award! I don’t think the world can understand how excited I am. I want to say a HUGE thank you to Zelynne Blog for nominating me! I am so grateful for all your support and your interaction on my blog! It’s so encouraging to know there are people out there who appreciate and enjoy my writing.
You know those days of motherhood when the struggle is just really real? I’ve been having a day like that. Actually, I’ve been having several days like that. Call it what you want – teething, a growth spurt, tired, temperamental – but I seriously have no idea.
Fridays are my unpredictable days. I don’t mind since it’s the beginning of the weekend, and most unplanned events are welcome ones. Today, I took an unexpected trip to IKEA with Aaron and Desirae. Call that fun, or call it being lost in a never-ending maze of Swedish words with no cell phone service. I call it fun. However, what I REALLY wish when I’m there is to rent the store for a weekend and have a giant slumber party with all my friends. Imagine, a group of girls running through IKEA in their pajamas, bathrobes sweeping behind them, as they scatter around the store cooking popcorn in their dream kitchens, lounging on their personal sofas, and sleeping in their Pinterest worthy bedrooms of choice. That sounds like the best birthday party ever.
I hope that you enjoyed your Friday as much as I did and have a great rest of the weekend! Here is a video from The Breakwomb that, I hope, starts your weekend off with a laugh.
There was once a coffee table He was sturdy and small He liked to hold things And didn’t mind at all He held coasters for coffee And Kleenex for long cries He offered magazines to strangers Who happened to walk by Many friends loved him And adored his long face He was there for so many And helped tie… Continue reading Ode to a Coffee Table
Before we were married, I never realized that assessing our spiritual health was something we would have to do. (Now that I’m writing it out, it seems pretty obvious.) I was used to evaluating my own relationship with God, but I wasn’t accustomed to evaluating our pursuit of God as a couple.
