{Life Made Lovely Monday}

First time in the highchair (and tried rice cereal) for Ainsleigh was Sunday February 6

If you can relate with these… 

the real yet lovely…

           the unmade beds

spaghetti O’s for dinner
                                                                                         3 minute showers

         4 am feedings

kids that don’t sleep
                                                                                                                                toys everywhere

smashed goldfish in the car

sometimes taking a nap instead of working out
loads of laundry

piles of bills

the meltdowns at target

then it’s a good reminder you are…

because you have precious little people in your life.

& you probably love the simple joys…

               going to the grocery store alone

                                                  laughter                              a late night movie
                                         clean sheets

            a hot bath

baby snuggles
                                                                                               a hershey bar

I am thankful for the (un)lovely because in reality…it is really beautiful.

Found this precious quote about being a mama 
(on this blog), thought Id share…

“They’ve taught me to forgive quickly, reminded me that learning is magical, and proved that taking time to sit, talk, and play with them one-on-one is much more important than having a perpetually clean house. They’ve also taught me to laugh at knock-knock jokes that make absolutely no sense, consent to breakfast food three times a day, and accept that a pack of gum purchased today will not be around tomorrow. And I’m okay with all of that because I can’t imagine my life without them; without their good-night kisses and infectious smiles. I love that I am theirs and they are mine, forever.”
