a lifestyle blog about motherhood, intention, whimsical moments, and wellness
Just some Friday random thoughts. Currently snacking on some twizzlers and a hot chocolate. It’s midnight…Chris, Ains & Apple are sound asleep..Aiden woke up and wanted to sit in my lap while I finished up a few things.
This is the picture he is working on :).
Have I told you that Aiden loves to talk in third person? I have no idea where he got it from but it’s the sweetest thing ever. It’s like a tiny storybook character. Have I told you how much of myself I see in this little person? Not the third person part…but so many other parts. He just walked in and said to me “mama, Aiden wants to snuggle you”.
the sweetest ever.
Things are good here, busy as ever. Chris produced/directed a documentary for the American Heart Association about 2012 Olympic Gold Medalist Dana Vollmer today which was really neat. I am so proud of him and the beautiful films he creates. He has had so many amazing opportunities this year and I just love watching it!
I had this thought today about the conference next week. Suddenly vulnerable.
Meaning on this little space I get to share what I want. It’s edited. Carefully chosen.
I choose the pictures, the writing, the stories.
But next week, it’s real life- just me….the “raw” me….and that leaves me feeling a little vulnerable. Its that question that always seems to sneak it’s way into my mind….“are you enough?”
I made a second instagram account ( a public one) and it suddenly occurred to me that it’s like everyone has their own mini reality shows. Yes very small scale… but true right? We can see via facebook, instagram, twitter, blogs the play by play of people’s lives. It’s like your whole life right there. What we are doing that day, what we are eating, what is on our mind.
Ainsleigh has slept a whole week now in her big girl bed! This is huge for her because she is my one that has always loved her crib. When we brought little Apple home Ainsleigh decided she didn’t like her crib anymore. Aiden has always been our co.sleeper and Ainsleigh had always been the one who wanted to be by herself, in her crib. So when she started wanting out, I decided to see if she liked the big girl bed in her room and she did!
Tomorrow I am heading to Starbucks (Apple & I) to spend some time writing. Once a month I am going to try and do this to stay caught up with my Disney posts and other things going on.
That’s about it. I have a sweet three year old who wants to snuggle so I am off :). Goodnight friends!
