I read on the Finding Joy blog this week and Rachel wrote a post on why being a mom is enough. I think we all need to here this now and then.
"I’m talking about getting up in the morning, slapping your face with water, looking in the mirror, sighing, brushing your teeth (maybe), and picking up that toddler and wandering into the kitchen and pouring cereal in bowls, rinsing dishes, kissing the top of their head, and waiting for your coffee to brew.
There isn’t much glamour.
There is you. You giving of yourself. Minute, by minute, by minute, by minute until those hours add up to create a day which adds up to create a week which adds up to create a month which adds up to create years which add up to create a life. A beautiful life filled with ordinary enough mom moments."
So this week as the tenth drew close, I chose to just find some of those ordinary life moments to capture around the house. Max is still just in morning preschool a few days a week so he's my most steady sidekick. He makes the most appearances in this post but the bulk of the images were actually from yesterday. It was a snowy, rainy, April Saturday morning. Little league was cancelled and we were graced with some quiet at home. Enjoy my friends and don't miss out on those "ordinary mom moments" this week!
(And I apologize that Dean does not make any appearances in this month. Sorry dude, your brothers and sister stole the show this time!)
