Fam·i·ly

By on March 11, 2015
When you are a child the word Family is so simple. You look around at your parents and siblings and you feel secure because you know that is your family. 

When you are a child the word Family is so simple. You look around at your parents and siblings and you feel secure because you know that is your family. 
You know they love you and you love them. 
You and your siblings have a fight and someone cries, you usually solve the issue fairly quickly because you would rather have your favorite play mate than not. 
The days of playing cops and robbers seems so simple. 
As we get older relationships change. We see flaws and have conflicts

We become stubborn and hard headed. We make mistakes and hurt people. We hope they will forgive us and that we can forgive them.
It’s difficult but you all try
Family isn’t as simple a term as it once was. Your circle expands and yet it closes in. 
The people who mean the most aren’t always blood. They are friends who turn into family. 
Your roots, though, are still there.
Family is now even more meaningful. The relationships take work because we get busy and consumed with our own children, jobs and lives but it’s worth it. 
They may make mistakes and disappoint us but if we can forgive them it will make that bond even stronger
Your child becomes a part of them. Their love for your child whether blood or not is incredible. This little person shows them the purest love and theirs to you. 
You can’t help but smile and think how incredibly blessed you really are. 
Family isn’t simple. It isn’t cookie cutter. It can be a roller coaster of a relationship. It brings out the strongest emotions in people. 
Life is short, spend it with those you love. Cherish your family.

This is dedicated to my Brother & Sister. I love you both so much! Without you I would be lost after losing Mom and Dad.

How do you do it?

By on March 8, 2015

I often get this question a lot. “How do you do it?” 


I think people see three young children and assume it’s the hardest, most stressful life there ever was! I mean yes, having 3 under the age of 4 (and at one point 3 under 3) can be rough, especially when two of them are only 5 months apart. 
I often get comments like “Bless you!” or “You really have your hands full!” and of course the infamous “How do you do it?!”  I get it, we can look like a spectacle at times. 
So how do I do it? Well, it’s like anything in life, you just do because you have no choice. 
Every day we get up, try to follow a general routine and get through the day with as many laughs as we can. My house is rarely ever not cluttered with baby stuff and if I could fully finish laundry it would be a miracle. Half the time my kids are running around in only diapers and underwear because pulling pants up and down every time someone needs a diaper change gets old. Also if you have met Everly you will know this is no easy feat. The girl loves to scream and spin whenever she is changed. 
I also have a husband who wins in the Daddy category. Whenever someone asks how I do it he is my answer. Branden picks up so much of my slack. He is a cleaning machine, plays with the kids and keeps our house from falling apart all while working. He is a savior and I am lucky to call him mine. I think people assume the Moms do it all or maybe the Dads are only there for the fun parts but not in our family. Branden takes on so much and I am very grateful. I don’t think I tell him enough. 
So my house is a slight disaster and my kids are half dressed but at least they are happy the majority of the time. I may be going slightly nuts through out the day but they are pretty oblivious to it. We go through harder times and super easy times but overall we make it because we just do. We learn what works and what doesn’t and go with what does. 
People have asked for a Day in the Life post so I will try to get that done for you all! 
How do you make it work with your family?

Don’t Rush It

By on March 3, 2015
Pool Day! (Everly was sleeping)

This past month (or months I should say) have been so busy. With vacations, birthdays, showers and a wedding it has been pure craziness.
Now that it is March we are zeroing in on Everly’s FIRST birthday! I can’t believe my little baby girl is going to be one. Since we decided she will be our last baby it is a very bitter sweet celebration.
Anyone else feel this way about their last babies first birthday? The ending of an era so to speak. We will be entering into a new stage of life. A stage of toddlerhood and kiddie-hood. A stage of walking, talking and independence. It makes me want to cry and smile all at the same time. 
I was never one for the newborn stage but I always loved the toddling age. I love how they have these funny personalities and are learning to talk and express themselves. It is incredible to watch. My kids have all been such sweet, awesome, fun kids that I can’t imagine what else life has in store for us. They are also all so different and I love that. I have one who has always been extremely smart, silly and fun. Another one who is super loving, sweet and nurturing. Then my little firecracker, wild, hot tempered and a killer personality. They all have so many incredible things about them that I think “I can’t wait to see who they become” then I stop myself and saying “don’t rush it”. 
I think that scares me more than anything. I hate the statements like it goes by so fast and just yesterday they were babies. I get sick to my stomach over it. I think about how fast it went with my parents. They are gone and I am 30, almost 31 and that’s it. They aren’t here. I want to enjoy every moment with my kids and cherish it, not rush it. So when I start thinking I can’t wait for this I stop myself. Another reason Everly’s birthday is bitter sweet because it did come in a flash and now she is a walking, babbling little toddler. She is no longer a baby (hell, she was never a baby, she refused being a baby). 
Time is precious and sometimes you really focus on how precious it is. I hope I never lose sight of this. I hope it is forever in my mind that I have to cherish it all.
