So, I had a wonderful Mother's Day. Derek let me sleep in so I got 4 hours of sleep instead of 3, don't ask. That seems to be my weekend trend of sleep lately, but I never regret it, I'm always up for a good time, so call me! We had a Baldry family affair and it was a fun afternoon, with a perfect rainbow to end it on, right girls?!
I have so many wonderful examples of mothers in my life. My own mom, mother in law, the new edition mother in law, sisters, and sis in laws, and friends, and just random others too. I look up to all of you in different ways. Being a mom is such a journey. I appreciate every one of you and the influence you have had on me as a mother.
I am having a hayday being a mom right now. The weather is beautiful. We've been good busy and inbetween we go to the park everyday, picnics, bike rides, all the fun stuff. This is when being a stay at home mom through the trials of 'what the crap do we do inside all winter' are all worth it! I mean what other job do you get to work on your tan in the backyard while the little ones play?!
My kids bring me so much joy. They are a ton of work sometimes and they better appreciate all they stress they put me through, but it is so worth it. I hope and pray every day that I am doing this right. It is so hard somedays to know what to do and how to do it in this ridiculous world.
I rely so much on my Heavenly Father to help me be the best version of me. I want to be the person my mom knows I am and I want to be the mom my kids know I am.
I made that up. Does it make sense? Probably someone will quote me someday.
Next up. James' birthday. Hopefully it won't be a month later.
