Being a mom can be the best and it can be the worst. For some of us today is just another day. There’s no gifts. We wake up, make breakfast, change diapers, make food...just doing what we do.
Over the weekend I just wanted to get some fresh mountain air, a good hike, naps, book reading, watching the kids sleep, plus enjoy some delicious food and wine. And that’s exactly what I did! That’s all I needed. Even if there were multiple melt downs, it’s never going to be perfect.
I’m just thankful to be a mom. I’m thankful I can call my mom any time I want.
This afternoon James took Nico to the hardware store and Madie helped me make dinner. She wanted to take a picture, so we did. I pretended to take a picture and instead made this video. It really captures her personality.
Nico turned 1.5 years old last week. He got his first haircut on the 5th. And a few days ago started saying Madie. It’s adorable. He’s also teething a lot which is never fun for anyone.
The photo in the left bottom corner is from “Fun sock Friday” at my favorite gym. I’ve finally started to find my rhythm between family, work and making a slice of space for “me.” Truly blessed.
Just wanted to personally wish all the moms out there a very Happy Mother’s Day! ❤️ @madieskitchen @nancybustle #madieskitchen #happymothersday #mom #hike #bigbear #badash6weekchallenge @aimeedeedarling #onedayatatime @badashlifts
