Selfie with my best guys after signing my chapter of #cravingconnection at the @barnesandnoble in Burnsville! My son tells people that I'm 'kinda yike a author' and he's right. I've been asked twice this week if I always wanted to be a writer and the answer is yes. But I never thought I'd actually live that dream. This is the seventh piece I've been published in and I'm crazy thankful.
At urgent care with my middle love. She was holding daddy's hand en route to bed realized she was going to bed and didn't want to and limp noodled to the floor While still holding daddys hand. Thought it was 'nursemaids elbow' but after setting it she was still in such pain. Waiting on X-rays now.
Lately Ive wondered if my kids think that I resent them. Like if Im doing too much of my own thing besides focusing on them. And it doesnt matter if its a legit thing like MY JOB or laundry or cooking or whatever - Ive still struggled with guilt and worry. . But what theyve shown me over and over is grace love and welcome. . No matter what. Even if one of us has had a temper tantrum. We move on. The day ends and a new one begins. I lean over their beds and breathe a kiss over them while they…
We've dubbed this a lazy watch-all-the-movies eat mac&cheese stay in our pjs all day kind of Saturday because we're all burnt out and we just can't even today. Snapped this to be like 'see how carefree we all are?' and the baby started to nosedive off the couch and Josie's tongue. Carefree. Nailed it.
This kid. I haven't reconciled that he'll start kindergarten in the fall that our coffee dates will be after a full day of school. It's also getting more difficult (logistically) and more important to have one-on-ones with these kidlets. I'd love to hear how you - if you - spend that kind of time with your kids!
It may be cold and dreary outside but it's still a beautiful view. And isn't that the truth on so many levels? Hoping you see the sparkle of the lake beyond the brown trees today friends.
Tonight we took the $78.23 we got back from our HOA in the sale of our house and we went out for dinner. It's been a wild ride - the kind that makes your stomach hurt if you think about what's coming or where you've been. But this week the tilt-a-whirling slowed. We're clawing our way back to healthy finances and this week we're taking a victory lap. And so tonight we celebrated. // To those in a similar boat hang in there. We can do this. We will do this. Cheers!
I missed #naptimechats with my friends @erikadawson @BrittaLaFont @kristinhtaylor @lauren_dv @kaysepratt @marycarver and @chris10price yesterday because naptime was very short. Too short.

Our boy Sam is 4 Josie is 1 and Clara Grace is 4mos. I work from home as the @incourage Social Media…
