I specifically remember the moment I realized how much I loved him. It was 4a.m. and he was a little over 12 hours old. He and I were the only ones awake. Daddy was snoring on the couch, all the visitors had left, and the nurses weren’t around. It was just he and I. There I was, a brand new mother with the most beautiful baby boy I had ever seen. He was laying in one of those rolly carts the hospitals have. I feel like they’re just a piece of over-sized tupperware on a
Happy 4th Birthday, my sweet boy! Another year has flown by in this life we live. When I think back to the last 365 days, it all seems like a blur, it went by so fast! I re-read the letter I wrote to you last year and honestly, it feels like I just wrote it 3 months ago, which makes this letter a little harder because I sound like a broken record. We started your year with the most kick ass airplane party I’d ever seen. Poppy pulled out all the stops and built you an airplane
As we're celebrating Memorial Day today with cookouts and fun drinks, let's be sure to remember the real meaning of the day. Our future generations are free because of the brave. Thank you for serving.
This one is most definitely for the books, you guys! We have survived and completed our first school program...and did it with flying colors!

His special part turned out to be the "Bible Holder" during the pledge of allegiance. He not only held that Bible, he held it well. I was a
“And where were his parents?”, they asked.. Why does society feel the need to blame every child’s action on the parent? Why do we feel the need to say, “where were his parents?” when we see a child acting in what we consider an inappropriate manner? Why do moms have to deal with whispers and disapproving looks from strangers when their child is “misbehaving” in public? I don’t like this about our society and here’s why. A lot of times, the parents are there. They’re there 100
Listen. I truly do appreciate my kids pre-school teaching him about sharing. Honestly. He's an only child, he needs to know the ins and outs of sharing and all that other golden rule kinda stuff. But if I hear "sharing is caring" one more time, I'm going to lose my shit. The other evening, I fed my son a very appropriate dinner that he was completely satisfied with. He even said he liked it. After he finished, I set him up with a movie and juice so I could finish up some wor
So I was going to wait until his Birthday week to share these but I'm just too pumped about them! For his 4th birthday, Kaleb wanted to do all things "choo-choo" and I cringe at the thought of Thomas the Train overload....so instead of doing Thomas I thought a vintage-ish party would be cute and since non-Thomas train decorations are limited, I'll use these pictures as part of the decorations! I'm so loving the way they turned out. Get ready for a lot more birthday related th
