It’s the most wonderful time of the year....and the busiest if you are a parent with little ones. It baffles me how we find time to get it all done. A sample of my list is as follows:
This time of year is exhausting! And to think, we are only in Phase One. We don’t have any kids in school yet. With that comes holiday parties, recitals, plays, concerts and so many other things I have no idea about yet….but I am sure I will find a way to get those done one day too. That’s what parents do. We do it because of the sparkle in the eyes of our kids when they wake up and find their elf on the shelf each morning. We do it because there is nothing sweeter than the sound of jingle bells from a three year old while they brush their teeth. We do it because we hope our kids will grow up and love the holidays as much as we do. In all of this craziness I am trying to remember, it doesn’t have to be perfect…because it is in the imperfection that the best memories are made. Fellow parents, I hope you are enjoying the holidays. The work, the spirit and the love.
Until Next Time,
Pregnant! Wait, what...we are pregnant?!? That was my husband and I about one year ago when our youngest daughter was only 4 months old. Couple that with our 2 year old daughter and we were staring three kids 3 and under in the face. Fast forward to today, Our son is 8 weeks old tomorrow and quitely sleeping on me as I write this, my first Blog. As a working mother, life is very busy. Deciding to start a business on top of it may make me slightly crazy, but the fact that my company is all about kids and giving them an amazing one of a kind gift, how could I not? I love my babies, and my husband more than anything. It isn't always easy, in fact sometimes its hard to find joy when I seem to be repeating myself a million times a day to a three year old with a mind of her own, trying to understand the incomprehendable babbles of a one year old desprately trying to talk and holding a newborn with two hands because his neck is not quite strong enough to do it on his own. It's easy to get frustrated, but I really try to stop and laugh and be ok when things spill, or get loud or things don't go as I planned in my head. I am starting this blog as a mom, as a wife and as a business woman. I hope some of what I have to say connects with you along the way.
